Summer #Staycations

 

For many, staycations are an option. But at times, staycations are a mandatory part of your work life. At first sure it was hard, but if you love or have a passion for something then nothing can stop you!

Working in the Garment District in NYC has its perks depending on what you do. But for myself, I take on two jobs. One, as an assistant/partner to an elite pattern maker and the other working in production (quality check). Don’t get me wrong I love my jobs, but one of the minor setbacks is not having the availability to fly out. On my free time, I love to photograph just about anything the concrete jungle has to offer and convert that to art through my lens.

Verizon helps me with ALL my staycations. Here’s how,
I love to do overnight trips (close to the city limits) if not picnicking in Central Park or Inwood, among my favorite parks to be in. My Samsung Edge 7 along with the mobile hotspot are an amazing collaboration. Service and speed are what I love.

For those overnight trips, my handy backup battery has enough juice for 2 days. Recently I went on an overnight camping trip near Woodstock, NY. I didn’t have to worry about reception. My camping partner and I were both connected some 10 miles away from the nearest town with full reception. Also, the GPS feature became very helpful as we hiked. We streamed music and roasted marshmallows watching the sun hide away in the mountains peak. When I do stay home, I love to stream music and edit my photography through my cloud storage.

Hey Everyone!

 

It’s May and that means Spring is in full effect. Baseball season is a go, and the NBA are in their playoff games! But not everything is a smooth ride. With the devastations of the two earthquakes in April (Japan, Ecuador) Verizon is helping out with offering free calls to landlines only so you can communicate with your loved ones.

Recently I just finished moving at work, from one office to another. I can say it’s been pretty much a headache. But planning ahead before the big move made everything smoother. Moving from Chelsea to the Garment District, the first thing I checked was if I had enough strong and sturdy boxes. Countless rolls of tape, 27-gallon container bins and a few days of planning ease’s the move. Also, having enough manpower for the move. Are you moving on your own or with professionals?  Here’s a link incase you want to read it more in depth.

Last but not least I wanted to say Happy Mother Days to all the mothers out there! Special shout out to the mothers who have to play two roles to their kids.
