Nick Jonas before rehearsal! 1.16.2012! & Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

As you guys & dolls know, I am a HUGE Jonas Brothers fan. Camp out on the streets of NYC on Thanksgiving night through Black Friday morning in the freezing cold for seventeen hours HUGE. And what did I do today? You guessed correctly, wait out in the freezing cold for a Jonas Brother, Mr. Nicholas Jerry Jonas!

I awoke this morning early morning with one thing on my mind, "Going to NY to see Nick!" My friends Karen, Carla, Tawhida, Tahsina & I caught the bus to Port Authority and we arrived our destination by 8:20. We were on our way to the location where Nick is rehearsing for his upcoming take over of the lead in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying!

We made a lovely friend named Marli, who was from Sweden who moved to New York not too long ago! She stuck it out in the cold with us. It was particularly FREEZING. I couldn't feel my hands or feet!

After a few hours of waiting, Nick arrived! "GOOD MORNING NICK!" I projected through the crowd. He went into the store to get his coffee. The girls watched and took pictures like the paparazzi! Fan girls are the best, love them! Surprisingly I was relatively calm when he arrived. Compared to my previous Jonas encounters where more embarrasing things have occured. I was chill which is nice to be instead of star struck!

He left the store and took pictures with his fans.
He was walking around for a while, taking pictures it was adorable.

Lovely fan!

Karen's Picture!


As I took my picture I said, "wait, hug first," and gave him the biggest hug! I then took a picture with him, and told him to have a great rehearsal and he said thank you. I love meeting my boys!

Afterwards we said good bye to Marli, she had class! We made our way to McDonalds, and chilled for the next hour. It's my favorite McDonalds on 42nd! So that was our Jonas encounter.

McDonald's group picture!


Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
He is one of my biggest role models, his peaceful approach was admirable by anyone! Our lives wouldn't be the same without his efforts, and the work of many other people before us.

Happy New Year 2012!

The past year sure was a ride, full of memories! 2011 was a year of challenges and adventures.  I felt as if I was becoming a stronger, smarter person with every lesson placed in front of me. From spending some great nights in NYC, spending my summer away from my immediate family in Florida with my God parents, to entering senior year. 2011 taught me that the easiest decision is not always the most efficient.

2011 was made up of attending two Seventeen Magazine Events, being selected to represent my school at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards , meeting Tyler Blackburn who plays Caleb on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars, going to Disney World, going to my first Teen Vogue Event (where I met some fabulous blogger friends!), seeing Joe Jonas in concert at Saks 5th ave on FNO, getting elected Vice President of our Student Government Association & president of our Interact Club, going to Youth in Government Day for our county, opening this blog, along with my new positive twitter @prosperousteen, getting a solo in our Cabaret Night, visiting my dream college Berklee College of Music in Boston twice (and auditioning!), plus a list of other things! I also got my permit the other day, so I'm hitting the road! VROOM VROOM!

Make a list of all your accomplishments this year, or of all time, and truly be grateful for all of them. The universe will keep sending blessings your way!
Ive been reflecting for days now, so lets look to the current year!

I'm so ecstatic to see what 2012 has to offer! Along with prom, graduation, & entering college, I also have a school trip to Europe coming up that I am so excited for! I've never left the USA that is definitely gonna be an adventure! Senior year is no joke, but with endings come new beginnings, which equates to a brand new frontier for me! And I'm not one to push away change.
In this year, I hope to improve my picture taking for my posts. -charges up the camera- haha.

So weve looked at the past, and the future... right now, its my last day of winter break. It does go by rather quickly doesn't it? The holidays are over, and its back to hard work.

Till next update!
