Because you will eventually long for that freedom.
So I may not be the best blogger, but I try to keep my posts engaging. The year is kicking in quite alright, but I still have a long way to go. However, the one thing I always enjoyed but never gave enough credit in doing or getting to enjoy more is Mixed Martial Arts and fitness. I have came a long way from a shaky 2013 when I lost both of my grandparents, of which I was very close to. My grandmother was my primary caretaker for a huge percentage of my life and I can also proudly say I adapted alot of my late grandfather’s mannerisms. Losing my grandmother to Diabetes is definitely the hardest thing I ever experienced and I’m still trying to get over. So how does one ring in 2014, besides all my news in Press Photography? Simple, taking care of myself, especially healthwise. I was fortunate in getting into shape with an amazing trainer in circuit training and not only lost weight and toned up (though I was always known for being stronger than I look), but decided that this is something lifelong for me. I became more aware of my diet and constantly see the weight shed off. My jawlines are more defined, my skin and eyes brighter, and my mental focus sharper. I often bust into any GNC’s I stumble across and often ask questions about the supplements. I am currently using the Women Ripped Pack and love the chewables. Got my mom to buy healthier groceries everytime I come back home and best of all is that I feel a bit more happier now than I ever did. Can’t wait to buy my first bikini as a 24 year old woman in June! So what’s next from this post? More hiatuses? Besides, becoming my trainer’s freelance assistant for today, a new direction! I will start posting more diet tips, workout tips, inspirations, supplements to check out and avoid, and all that is fitness, nutrition, and dope sports and MMA I can muster on the interwebs. Until then, STAY TUNED!
Happy (Belated) New Year! January was quite a busy month for me and now its the first day of February. I was able to cover six Press events, covered one PopUpSwap event and a Bitter NYC photo-shoot. I also have a more supportive team of people I can’t wait to tackle lots of projects with. Not to mention, I got a cool shootout from my director of Career Services at Trinity College for choosing to build my own business. Fashion Week is already here so all I have to say is welcome to 2014, The Year of the Horse. Waiting 12 years for this day, so can’t wait to see what happens next.
Hope everyone had a wonderful New Years! As always trying my best to use WordPress, but I have a feeling that you will hear more of me very soon. This time, I started early in the year and ready to get things moving. Before the events and the photoshoots, here are my goals for 2014. Hope I can get all of them down, you never know!
1) Get signed to shoot with a magazine
2) Get signed to cover more celebrity red carpets, fashion shows, concerts, and shows.
3) Freelance with a powerful non-profit
4) Join ASMP OR PPA
5) Conduct at least 12 Editorials in 2014
6) Hold a gallery event of my work
7) Fully transfer and transform my website to WordPress
8) Maximize usage in the social media platform:
i. Pinterest-Learn more about it
ii. Instagram-Get at least 1,500 followers
iii. WordPress-Get at least 50 followers
iv. Twitter-Get at least 1,500 followers
v. Facebook-Get at least 1,500 likes in Facebook

Go on a date, there I said it! Exercise and try boxing again!
Until then, let 2014 be an amazing year!
