Last weekend, I visited Atlantic City for the first time with my three friends Laura G, Bre, and Jordan. I really wasn’t sure what to expect, so I came with an open mind. A.C. is an interesting place because in some ways it’s a little tacky with the chain stores/restaurants and the whole tourist-y resort atmosphere. Yet it’s so fun and fancy that it makes you feel like royalty!
We checked into a very nice hotel on Friday evening. We were on the 15th floor! The view was amazing, looking over the tall buildings and the tiny people. That night, we attended the G-Eazy concert.
Then on Saturday, we spent the day shopping and the night at another concert for Machine Gun Kelly.
It was so amazing to have the weekend to spend with friends who I don’t get to see as often as I used to! Looking forward to more epic weekends together!
On Saturday night I saw MØ live in concert at the Electric Factory in Philly. Cashmere Cat was there too. It was totally amazing. She is a powerful singer — sounds even better live than on record. The venue has cool decor, very trippy. Last time I was there was for the Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz tour. It was awesome to be back and I definitely plan on returning again.
Day 22: Environmentalism
We fail to recognize how important it is to take care of our environment so that our environment can continue providing for us.
Day 23: Animal rights
Animals should be treated with respect and we should use our privilege as humans to help them however we can. We can learn so much from them so it’s important that we utilize their gifts without completely exploiting them.
Day 24: Technology
Technology helps us progress as humans. But I can also see how it holds us back in certain ways. It can save our environment but also destroy it. It can create connections but also burn bridges. It should be treated with caution.
Day 25: Karma
I certainly believe in karma. It’s all about receiving the same type of energy you put out there. It’s not about punishments and rewards, it’s about aligning yourself with the kind of energy you want more of. (So don’t call her a bitch!)
Day 26: What are your core beliefs?
At the core of my beliefs I like to keep an open mind and remain open to the belief that everything I think I know is wrong. All I know is I know nothing!
Day 27: How have you changed?
I’ve opened up a lot to finding new experiences and doing things differently. I try to no longer see myself as a victim of situations. I’m more about letting go and not being so afraid of losing control.
Day 28: What makes you happy?
I’m happy to be focused in the moment and surrounded by anyone with positive vibes.
Day 29: How do you get yourself through a hard time?
Find a healthy way to release the stress and then focus all my energy on the good things.
Day 30: What advice can you give yourself?
Don’t feed the fears.
Day 21: THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
Struggling with trying to “be happy” is downright overrated and unrealistic. It is setting yourself up for failure and creating a downward spiral of unhappiness. There is more to life than just “being happy,” what about being a good person or learning new things or having life-changing experiences? It’s really not that hard to be happy for a moment. It is incredibly unrealistic – and kind of sadistic – to wish to be happy all the time. What about in times of mourning, or when you are sympathizing with someone, etc…? Having said that it is important to make yourself happy, but never focus on lack of unhappiness.
How you see yourself
I see myself as someone who always tries her best but makes mistakes along the way that she learns from, someone who is very introspective with a lot of dreams and ideas, someone who is grateful for what she has and really appreciates the people who help her out.
How others see you
It’s hard to say how others see me. I’m sure that everyone has a different idea from their own perspective.
Things you wouldn’t or would change about yourself
I think it’s good that everyone has their own distinct personalities and we shouldn’t try to change each other or ourselves. The things I try to change about myself are ways that I can be a healthier and happier person.
