8 Reasons Why I Love New York City
Caroline Kiser

I have more than 100 reasons why I am in love with New York but here are just a few to start. I hope one day you will get the opportunity to fall in love with this city like I have.

"New York, may be the city that never sleeps, but that's because there's something in the air that renders sleep useless"

1. New York is alive

There is no other way to describe it. Every time I visit there is always something new. New York offers unprecedented opportunities for craziness. It has an energy like no other city in the world. There’s no other city that could compete with the energy in New York. The fast pace, the buzzing traffic, the hustle and bustle of the people, the 24-hour life, make NYC one of the most vibrant places in the world.

“One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years.” — Tom Wolfe

2. It’s the Concrete Jungle where Dreams are Made

An ordinary day can become an extraordinary experience in a New York Minute.”

No one can deny the excitement of living in the Big Apple, or the fact that anything can happen at any time. New York has all these different sections and each one can feel like an entirely different country

3. The Diversity

One of the city’s greatest attributes is its diversity, and NYC is often thought of as America’s melting pot. About 36 percent of New York’s denizens hail from other countries, and you can hear as many as 800 languages spoken.

4. Opportunities are Endless

New York has everything from the Rockettes, every early morning, noon and late night show, Broadway, 5th Avenue, landmarks and so much more. New York has a way of giving me a feeling that I can accomplish anything I set out to do.

5. Every Holiday in New York is Amazing

New Years, The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Christmas tree over the Rockefeller Center Ice Skating Rink, The 4th of July Firework show over the Hudson, The Halloween parade and many many more events

6. The Food

Being in one city you're able to eat all around the world. There are 8,000 different sit-down restaurants, and any type of food truck that you can think of. Whatever you are craving no matter the hour, you will find exactly what you want. I am pretty sure one could live in New York their entire life and still not eat at every restaurant.

7. The Skyline is Breathtaking

Manhattan’s skyline is world-renowned. It is home to several of the tallest buildings in the world including sky scrapers like the Empire State Building, The Chrysler Building, and One World Trade Center.

8. The Sights to See

Central Park, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Statue of Liberty, The One World Trade Center, Time Square, Grand Central Station, Wall Street, The High line, Rockefeller Center and many more.

New York, The place where you will never run out of things to do, dishes to eat, places to visit, people to meet, or dreams to fulfill. NYC is an ever-evolving city and that is the beauty of being apart of it

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
