To all of you out there who are reading this, I hope that you are paying very close attention because today's post is an important one! In today's world, we are constantly defined by the number of life experiences we are able to share with our following. I often find myself interrupting quality time with friends and family to think about how I could better sell myself to my audience. There are a million questions that I ask myself before I post anything on social media. "Do I have any blemishes on my face? Do I look too skinny in this picture?

What happens when you spend your entire life living in one of the world's most dreamed of cities? You spend your days finding any way possible to avoid the massive crowds of people gathered in front of famous landmarks for photo ops. That's how I've been for the majority of my life living in New York City until one of my best friends, Tiffany, moved away, created a bucket list, and pulled me along for the adventure. Turns out, it brought out a side of me that I like very much.
I don't want to focus on the details and history of NYC's most famous landmarks but rather, I would like to share with you all the result this experience had on me.
