#Reverb10 – Day 31 (Core Story)

31 Dec

December 31 – Core Story What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? (Bonus: Consider your reflections from this month. Look through them to discover a thread you may not have noticed until today.)

At my core, you’ll find someone who is bubbly, friendly, and sometimes crazy (in a good way). For most when they meet me, I’m very quiet, mainly to assess you as a person but get to know me and we can be the best of friends. I honestly have a huge heart with all the love in the world. When I get close to people, I begin to think of them as family. I even call some of my friends’ parents mom and dad (no lie).

Over the past month, I’ve realized how lucky I am when it comes to the people I surround myself with. Although I won’t be ringing in the new year with my best friends (one is work and the other two are in other cities), I’ll be with friends and couldn’t ask for anything better. My friends are what make me and help me make the right decision, even when I want to make the wrong one. Those I’ve grown up with, attended college with or converse with daily on Twitter, thank you for such an amazing year. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to make me smile & relate to me on a daily basis. 2011 isn’t ready for us 🙂

#Reverb10 – Day 30 (Gift Prompt)

31 Dec

December 30 – Gift Prompt: Gift. This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year?

Sorry this prompt gets too personal along with some drama.

#Reverb10 – Day 29 (Defining Moment)

31 Dec

December 29 – Defining Moment Describe a defining moment or series of events that has affected your life this year.

For this prompt, I should say graduation but my defining moment actually came about a week and half after graduation (I believe). I was taking my brother into the oral surgeon and I got a phone call from someone at MTV. Since the building had horrible service, I went out into the 90 degree weather and as I learned that I had been chosen for the TJ contest, let’s just say I was jumping up and down. Thinking back on it, I can only imagine the people in the office building must have thought, “who is this crazy girl in a dress jumping up and down in parking lot when it’s so hot out?”

The amount of excitement I had made it very hard to not tell people I had been chosen. So many of my friends who heard about the contest texted, IMed, and Facebooked me saying I should try and join to win. Little did they know MTV had basically stalked me and chose me to be part of the top 20. To be recognized by MTV is just amazing within itself. When I first started looking into PR, my dream job was actually at MTV and putting together the VMAs. Who knows maybe that will happen one day. Thanks to MTV & this contest I was able to meet some amazing people who I absolutely love.

By MTV realizing my potential in social media, it has made me realize I made the right choice to join Twitter and “meet” new people every week. When I initially signed up for Twitter, it was just very random and following a lot of celebrities. Now I know its potential and see mine.

#Reverb010 – Day 28 (Achieve)

31 Dec

December 28 – Achieve What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today.

I’m going to do half of this prompt. In 2011, I’d like to achieve the satisfaction of knowing that after thinking about my career, I’m at a place that I love 110% and never could imagine leaving. This of course would be my dream job and while particular job instantly comes to mind, I know the criteria of what my dream job entails and right now that’s all I can ask for.

#Reverb10 – Day 27 (Ordinary Joy)

31 Dec

December 27 – Ordinary Joy Our most profound joy is often experienced during ordinary moments. What was one of your most joyful ordinary moments this year?

Just couldn’t come up with an ordinary moment. Sorry.

#Reverb10 – Day 26 (Soul Food)

27 Dec

December 26 – Soul Food What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul?

Hmm I’m not really sure I tried anything new this year. I tend to stick to what I know I’ll like to eat.

#Reverb 10 – Day 25 (Photo)

27 Dec

December 25 – Photo – a present to yourself Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.

This picture definitely describes who I am. As the TJ contest came to an end, all of those who weren’t in NYC came in for the finale. I got to meet up with them and we all instantly clicked. Seriously I love these people and am so glad I got to meet them. Ironically there are a few that I already shared common friends with just from us being awesome I’m guessing.
