I just got back from a trip to Florida!

Still no tan, I’m starting to think I’m doomed to be pale as a vampire for the rest of my life. But that didn’t stop me from having a good time!

I was there for two and a half weeks but it felt like only days, but isn’t that what always happens?

I started my trip with Playlist Live, this was my second year attending and as always, I had a blast. (even if playlist did go overboard with the promo) And as per usual, I didn’t sleep much during that weekend. I didn’t sleep much during my whole stay in Florida for that matter. So many things to do, WHO HAS THE TIME?!

For the rest of my trip, I went to the beach, St. Augustine where I went on a ghost tour, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter where I cried of happiness and countless other adventures with my friends.

During my trip, I thought a lot about this blog, my life back home, the future. Maybe too many things for a vacation. I was faced with my usual thought process, that I want to travel the world. I want to do a thousand things but I still have no idea where to start.

Now I’m back in Washington, visiting my family and start work again soon. I’m left with an overwhelming feeling that time is slipping away but all I can do is turn into a sloth and scroll through social networking site.

It’s a horrible feeling and place to be, if I do say so myself.

I recently went to New York for the first time to see Ed Sheeran live at Madison Square Garden.

Why yes, I did fly across the country for a concert. This is the third time I’ve seen him live, the same set and I am still in awe of this man. If you’ve never heard his music, I highly recommend it, if you ever get the chance to see him live, take it. I have never admired an artist as much as I admire him. When I heard that he was going to play MSG, I was ready to go through the hunger games to get tickets to that show. Thankfully; I didn’t have to kill anyone and was able to get floor seats for his show! I then procrastinated and booked my flight, where we were staying as well as asked time off from work, last-minute (but what else is new.)

The day finally rolled around and I was off to the airport with a copy of Enders game for company. I landed in New Jersey and started my journey to Brooklyn where we were staying and of course, being me, I got lost for about 5-6 hours. I eventually did get to the destination. As I collapsed on the floor all I could think about was:

A. I really need to work on reading subway maps

B. The air isn’t as polluted as I thought and

C. I’m in New York, I actually did it.

Since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved New York and everything about it. I even wanted to live there most of my life (I had a poster that I made myself, it said “NEW YORK” in glitter that I hung in my room.) It wasn’t until I truly fell in love with Seattle and Washington state that I decided that maybe New York wasn’t for me, for now. But the fact that I was actually there and able to walk the streets that I’ve seen in pictures and movies, was beyond surreal for me.

I stayed there from the 31st of October-3rd of November. Too short of a trip for my taste but I’ll be visiting again soon, I hope!

In my time there, I went sight-seeing, ate at delicious food places, got to see friends that I haven’t seen in a long time and of course, got to see Ed live. (best show of my life tbh)

My only regret was not being able to see Dylan Sprouse when I was visiting the NYU campus. Maybe next time, Dylan. (Not creepy way wink)

Here are some pictures of my trip!
