My Experience at Trump Tower!

It was awesome!

My Experience at Trump Tower!

From the Statue of Liberty, to the Brooklyn Bridge, to Carnegie Hall, New York City has it all. Of the three places I've mentioned, I've only been to the Statue of Liberty. I went when I was in elementary school and instantly got a feel for the city and how amazing it was. Yes, that was the first time I've been to NYC, but it definitely hasn't been my last.

Since the Statue of Liberty, I've been down to the city at least five or six other times. I've seen two Broadway shows, been to the 9/11 memorial, been shopping, met one of my biggest inspirations, took a tour of the New York Police Department, as well as other things.

A few weeks ago, I went to the city for an entire week. The trip was for school and it was such an amazing opportunity. Even though the majority of the time, my class was at different businesses and agencies around the city, we did get some free time in the evening. Now, I can say that I've been to the 9/11 memorial again, the United Nations, visited the Wall Street Journal as well as so many other things. However, one of the biggest perks of my entire trip was when my roommate and I went to Trump Towers...twice.

My class left for the city on the morning of March 11th. On the way down, my roommate and I were discussing things that we wanted to do and see in the evening. Things like going to Times Square and Rockefeller Center were brought up. As we got talking more, going to Trump Towers was brought up. After some thinking, we decided to make that our first stop. We were going to get dinner there and live like "Real New Yorkers." However, once we looked into it more, we saw that all of the eateries there closed at four or five o'clock, minus the Starbucks on the second floor. Even though nothing was open, we still decided to go. We arrived there at about 5:30. There was law enforcement in front of the building and when we got in, we had to have our bags and our coats checked. They were all actually very nice to us and welcomed us to Trump Towers. We then headed for the gift shop. I don't think I have seen a more beautiful gift shop in all of my life. Everything seemed perfect. Shirts were stacked neatly, body lotion and soap were aligned, keychains weren't all over the place, and the Trump Sunscreen didn't even look like sunscreen. The gift shop was so bright and everyone working there was so friendly. I felt welcomed there. I ended up buying Trump body lotion for a family member of mine and a Trump Chocolate bar, which tasted like heaven. With the purchase of the Trump body lotion, I received free Trump bath crystals. We then walked around a little bit more and then headed to our next destination.

The next day, we decided to go to Trump Tower again. This time, we were going to eat there! Once my roommate and I got there, we noticed a crowd of people and members of secret service standing near the side of the building. In the middle of the crowd, was the black car with the two flags on it. We assumed it was Melania or one of the kids, but it was still cool to see.

Once we got in, we enjoyed some gelato (7 dollars later). The gelato was probably the best thing I've ever tasted. It was so rich and the lady making it was really nice. After, we went to the gift store again and then headed somewhere for dinner.

Regardless of your thoughts on Trump, Trump Tower is definitely something to see. It literally takes your breath away!

Today is Bisexuality Day and I'm more than ready to give all the bisexuals some love by breaking the stigma. I see you, I hear you, I appreciate you.

Bisexuliaty is a sexual orientation where people can form attraction and/or relationships to more than one gender. More than half of the LGBTQ+ community identifies as bisexual but it comes with a ton of bias, discrimination, and violence. And, honestly, bisexuals tend to be forgotten becuase bi-erasure wants to hold onto biphobia to question the existence and legitimacy of bisexuality.

There isn't one person the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hasn't affected. While COVID-19 is risking everyone's physical health, it's also destroying the world's economy and personal finances, weakening mental health, wreaking havoc on education... and, well, the list goes on.

Among the many things being impacted is love.

A Couple's Wedding In Peru Was Postponed By COVID-19, But A Lifetime Of Love Is Worth The Wait

"We'd prefer to wait and have the wedding that both of us have always thought of."

During their first semester at Instituto de Empresa (IE Business School) while working on graduate degrees in Madrid, Spain, soon-to-be-newlyweds Rory and Gigi met when they were placed in a workgroup together — and the rest was history. Now, four years after their relationship began, the couple's fall plans to get married in Perú, where Gigi is originally from, have since been postponed by COVID-19.

Though things haven't always been easy for the pair because of immigration, starting a skincare business together, and now, canceling their dream wedding because of the pandemic, they have always worked together as a team (maybe we should all be in a workgroup with our future spouses).

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

This fall was my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary! In the past for special occasions, we've typically gone out for a movie and dinner or just did something fun in general. However, in the year of COVID, we didn't really feel safe doing something like that.

Instead, we wanted to try something new that kept us significantly more socially distanced. Luckily, I found a TikTok trend a few months ago that gave me the perfect idea! The Target TikTok trend blew up all over for couples and friends alike. It seemed like a fun activity for us but also a good way to get each other gifts that we might not have thought about.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.
