Bermuda

Yes living the best life I can as Brittaney would say!

I have never worked for anyone who appreciates their employees enough to take them on a cruise!

Royal Caribbean best cruise line ever, everyone knows it! I wish I could share the detail on the pricing but I didn’t pay for much. Overall the room was nice, I didn’t like the obstructed balcony i had it ruined the view. I found myself going to co-worker room just to compare their balcony view with mine. Two days at sea before actually reaching the Island was tough, as much as I wanted to engage into the partying and drinking I was exhausted my first night on the boat I fell asleep fully clothes thinking I was going to a party…yeah sleep got me real good! Second day at sea I finessed my way into getting free drinks everywhere I went because 300 plus dollars was not an option for me for a drink package, No way! Blah Blah… okay Views from when we did get to Bermuda.

See where the yellow boats are?? yup that’s where my balcony is and that’s all i can see on it is yellow boats, what a drag! It took us forever to get off the boat because some of the gang woke up late! but this is some as they got off the boat.

We didn’t know where to explore so we walked around just site seeing.

We were introduced to the pink sand beach, which was a 20 minute drive from the dock.. So we got to see Different parts of Bermuda, it was beautiful!

By the way if you didn’t know and ever want to travel to the Caribbean, they do drive on the left side of the road and right side of the car! FYI. Driving to the beach was a bit scary, the driver didn’t really stay in his lane and the roads were very tiny, as well as curvy. But!!! we made it there safe =).  As soon as we got closer to the beach there a set of tall rocks and I was determine to climb them just to get a better view of everything. It was hard climbing rocks barefooted, but it was doable.

The scenery at this beach was beautiful and yes the sand was pink but I didn’t take any pictures of it oddly. It was hot as hell out as well! I felt like I lost 20 pounds….But anyway my favorite part of the cruise was the crew members! I absolutely adored them and made friends quick. They were polite, helpful and funny. They played a big part into why I enjoyed myself the most on this trip.

Albert, Pratmesh and Nuur were the crew member who made my stay very comfortable! One even adopted me as his cousin..lol! the Crew member kept us in the loop about the events that were happening at night off the ship! A “big” party gathering with not just people from the cruise but locals was a great experience. Caution/Safety was a huge factor due to hearing horror stories about kidnappings and killings of cruise member when then come to Bermuda.

I was definitely ready for a good time, being that I slept a lot on the ship, attending one event at night wasn’t going to kill me! plus my boss and co-workers complained about not seeing me much! The party was nice!! lots of drunk individuals just having a good time!

Sadly I had an allergic reaction to something I ate or drunk and was in need of something to calm the inflammation down. I broke out all over my face, chest and back the next day. so I went from looking hot above to looking like this…

I felt like the world was over and my vacation was ruined lol! But luckily when I’m home i would soak in a bath salt, so it was only right to get in the salt water! I stayed at the beach in the water for hours it took me 2 hours to get in the water and be comfortable because it was so cold! The salt water did eliminate the inflammation, but once i got out my skin was peeling like a mutant.

Overall my vacation was awesome! Nothing but good vibes and good people I loved it!!!. Sadly I came home after a week of being away and struggled to adjust back into the real world. From these two trips, I gave myself goals to travel to at least 32 states and 15 countries before I’m 30.

4 days of fun

So since my last post I’ve been doing things I wouldn’t normally do. It’s usually hard for me to break my normal routine, but after awhile you will realize that your life need new adventures.

Day 1. Biking

Never have I ever thought I would learn how to ride a bike….. YES LEARN at the age of 24 I have never owned a bike. After a few falls and attempts, I mastered the skill. Biking was a very tiring expereince especially for a person who’s not in perfect shape, but I absolutely loved it. I felt amazing after riding, my heart rate was up, my body was more relaxed, I met alot of people and the scenary of the trails are awesome! Purchasing my own bike is currently a goal.

Day 2. Yoga In the Park

IMG_1337Yoga in the park is a thing! It comes every summer and leaves by winter. I’ve been doing yoga in the park since summer of 2016 and now it’s back. This day was extremely hot and first day of doing yoga again was tough. I enjoy doing yoga because it keeps me grounded and focused. Yoga helps me feel alive and present. Working in the mental health field doing yoga teaches me how to breathe and learn how to react to stress peacefully. Yoga makes me feel strong and liberated! I encourage everyone to do yoga as much as possible.

Day 3. Indoor Rock climbing

IMG_1647A friend of mine talked me into rocking climbing, he stated that this sport helps reduce stress, increase brain functioning and build confidence. Well…. I was trying to figure out where the hell he got this information from because I almost had an anxiety attack lol. I have a huge fear of heights, so rock climbing was quite an experience. Mentally I believe rock climbing teaches you determination, even though by body was tired by the second go round I wanted to finish. Nothing else mattered the goal was for me not to give up and I didn’t! Now what made it hard for me was that once I reached the top I was afraid to come back down. I refused to jump off the wall and use the rope to come down, so instead I climbed down. My body was extremely sore rock climbing requires a lot of strength, strength in which I lacked lol! It was an experience maybe I workout a few times before I decide to do it again.

Day 4. Soccer

Once upon a time I played soccer in my youth. This day a few of my girlfriends and I decided to give it a shot! Boy was it an epic fail, it was fun but we were all rusty! None of us were physically in shape to run from one goal to another, were definitely burnt out really quick. Having fun was the ultimate accomplishment, everyone should play a sport you’re not good at it brings laughter.

A day in the park.

 

When spring comes around I love to work outside. As I type away on my laptop, I couldn’t help but to be distracted by my beautiful surroundings. I love to see other people enjoy the park just as much as I do, the families, the music, the flowers, the birds, I could keep going….

Things I enjoyed while at the park:

DSCN9414The relationship between bees and flowers…..

DSCN9384

Noticing the little things…..

DSCN9392The feeling of the sun on my skin….

DSCN9469The waves of the water……

DSCN9439Nautical dusk……

These distractions assisted with my mental fatigue. I was calm, I was relaxed and I was restoring my mind!

“New Beginnings”

This week I developed a new motto, well more like a phrase that sums up my explanation for my actions. “New Beginnings” has been my answer for everything this week.

Now before my “new beginnings” journey, I was so wrapped up in the wrong things and associated with the wrong people. For a long time, I felt like everything was taking a complete toll on me, from bad relationships, friendships, professional relationships, etc.. The list could go on. I instantly became overwhelmed with life changes and often felt depressed, but mostly alone. So, I decided to sit down, meditate, and have a long discussion with myself and some higher being. I concluded that I wanted a change!

I woke up the next morning and felt different. I sat in my car and before I know it I changed my number and deleted my WhatsApp account, my mind was moving so fast. I felt great for some reason  and nothing mattered anymore, I had a different attitude, different perception on how I wanted to live my life and the people I want to share my energy with.

This week has been amazing thus far, every day I woke up with feeling better and better. Now usually when I change my number I send out a mass text, but this time I can count my hand how many individuals have my number out of family and friends.

I came across a quote I noticed that was weirdly already my Whatsapp account status when I created a new one. The quote “I am thankful for those who left me. Because they taught me I can do it alone”- Chanakya. Clearly the person previously associated with my new number was in my head!!

I began to evaluate my life as I did the other day, but this time instead of being sappy I was thankful. Without those tremendous hurdles, loss of friendships, jobs, and better half’s, I will not be the strong individual I am currently or at least trying to be.
