10 Signs You're A New Yorker

(This was taken from my article from Odyssey).
Even though I've officially lived in Florida longer than New York, I still feel as if the empire state is still home. No matter how long you are away from your home state, people can still tell that you're from there. It is funny to me that people can detect even the slightest of things that give away that I'm a New Yorker. If you're from there, then you probably know what I'm talking about. Here are 10 signs you are from New York:

1. You complain about any other pizza that isn't New York pizza.

Especially with living in Florida, these pizzerias that claim they have "authentic New York pizza" are all living in a fantasy world. I'll tell you this, it's sort of close, but no cigar. Stop the lies.

2. You complain about bagels that aren't New York bagels

But you have to deal with it because it's the easiest thing to get for breakfast or a snack. You know what makes it better? Smoke salmon cream cheese with lox on top. YUM!

3. You get angry when you ask for a slice and the server at the pizza shop says "a slice of what?" 

Let's get one thing straight here, A SLICE MEANS A CHEESE PIZZA. Don't look at me like I'm crazy.

4. Your friends make fun of the way you say certain words

For example: orange, socks, etc. If you met my parents then you know anything they say gives it away.

5. You get annoyed when people automatically assume you're from Long Island or Manhattan

There are other parts of New York that do exist!

6. You get into heated arguments over Yankees v Mets

But for real, let's go Yankees!

7. You have owned or do own a North Face Jacket


8. You've had to take the Regents exams

9. You're really impatient when walking in crowds


10. You've never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building

Royal Caribbean: Allure of the Seas experience

I just came back from my week long cruise on the Allure of the Seas and let me tell you, this was such an amazing cruise ship! If I could bring every single person on this planet on this cruise ship, I would. I had such a fun time with my family and created new friendships and that's the beauty of cruises, they bring everyone together.

Central Park:  So, they had a "central park" on the ship and that was probably one of my favorite parts of the ship. (The photo above is me in front of the entrance). It had restaurants, stores, string lights, a Rising Tide bar, and picturesque plants and statues.

Cruise Activities:  There were so many things to do on this ship that you could never be bored. Clubs, zip lining, FlowRider, carousel, ping pong, mini golf, basketball, pool, karaoke, zumba, spa, musicals,  comedy shows, shopping, the casino and more! Seriously, you have something to do at all times, including eating copious amounts of food.

Dining:  Ok, so I wasn't thoroughly…

10 Questions From Pretty Little Liars We Still Want Answers To

The series finale of Pretty Little Liars left everyone with mixed reactions, but mostly I've seen some angry comments and many were disappointed with how it ended. Still so many plot holes and after 7 years, you would think we have all of our questions answered. Here are 10 questions we still want answers to:

1. What happened to Aria's brother?

2. Why wasn't he at the wedding?

3. Why did the horse figure out it wasn't Spencer before her own friends?

4. When Ezra first met Aria at the bar, he knew she was Ali's friend. Did he know Aria's true age then or did he not find out that Ali was a teenager?

5. What happened to Melissa?

6. How did Spencer kill Wren?

7. Did Alison and Emily find out that Wren is the father of their children?

8. Who was Bethany Young?

9. Who was "he" when the girls came running into Ali's classroom saying "he's coming".

10. Who kidnapped the girls during the Dollhouse episode?

I'm really upset about the endi…

Ryan Seacrest Spotted With An Old Flame

Credit: WENN

Ryan Seacrest was spotted with his ex-girlfriend Shayna Taylor in Venice going for a bike ride. Shayna is a model and personal chef, so she's not only beautiful, but very successful. The possible couple broke up 2 years ago, but it looks like things may be back on. They were all smiles while out on the town with their bikes and even stopped for a bite to eat. It's reported that Shayna was his date to a friend's wedding over Thanksgiving weekend.
