What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay. Well just finished up a vacation of a lifetime on this Spring Break 2015. Its not where I go, its who is there. That way the positive vibes spread around from your friends and bring out the best in an area. On that note, I went to Boston & Baltimore. I made many new friends and visited quite a few friends. Also, I reaffirmed that living and just going with the flow can lead you to so great discoveries :) !!! Without further or do, here is the tale of my venturings through the Northeastern US.
Ahhhhh Friday, when Spring Break began. School let out with sun raining down rays of optimism and I rapped/sent great vibes while waiting for the airport shuttle. Then rode up to Reagan and hoped on the train to Union Station while waiting for the bus to take me to Boston via NYC. When riding different trains, they reflect how the different paths in life. For example at L’Enfant Plaza, 4 lines meet and split. Green goes to SE DC and Yellow goes into VA. The lines reflect the choices we have and how life is fleeting and how one choice can make a difference. Moving on, I met my folks for dinner at Union Station and we shared great positive stories and then I boarded my bus. I believe that no matter where you go there will always someone positive for you! And the Greyhound to Boston was no exception. On my first leg to NYC, I met Monty and we chatted up a bit about optimism and how life has so much to offer. Also I thought the Turnpikes/Freeways as connections to different positive. They help trade ideas and connect different great things that help others. Once I arrived at NYC, I waited then switched to my Boston bus. On Boston, I made even a better friend, Sarah. We chatted about optimism/school and then I learned about her Creative Writing and Spanish/International Relations passion and we joked about optimism and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Sarah enjoyed my blog, shout out to her and she even gave me a hug, when we arrived at Boston. There is always someone cool/awesome out there to meet. You may never see people again, but their memories always remain.
Moving on, my friends came and I chilled in North Andover the rest of the day. Then I did some sightseeing. Its amazing how many great things are out there off the beaten path. Went to some bookstores and hiked. I got to tell you embracing nature is one of the best gifts of living. From getting fresh air and inspiration from the outside, I am able to come up with positives and see so much natural beauty. I have this belief that if we all do what we do best and respect each other, the world can be a much better place. Also bookstores bring back positive memories of sitting by the fire and having great book readings by my parents. Then I ventured around Boston, my last day up there. I always pay homage to Fenway Park, because of my passion to the Red Sox and the great history. Everytime I come to Fenway, I feel empowered to chase my dreams and not let doubters/negatives affect me. Also Boston, my birth city helps me reconnect to my purpose of being a positive person. Also as I walked around, I gave some uplifting comments to folks and made people’s days and everyone cheered when I yelled “GO RED SOX/PATRIOTS!!!”
Afterwards, I flew into Baltimore to hang with one of my great friends, Erica :). I saw some more nature and some lesser know places such as Liberty Reservoir and returned to Federal Hill/Inner Harbor. The dichotomy of the power lines and nature at Liberty Reservoir was a sign of positives or how power of positivity can really push someone to really accomplish some great goals. Also being outside helped me feel grateful and I learned new things about Erica and how to further help others out. Then my last day of my vacation, I went to the inner harbor to reflect on life and having a bird-eye view. I thought about how life passes by and how living in the moment, as I did this vacation allowed me to see great areas and meet some positive people along with seeing some great friends!!! My last day of vacation, I went into Downtown Baltimore. Also I came to a realization from Federal Hill. The buildings are there and people are there from the view. You can either complain about the high buildings or appreciate their function and how everyone is working to make the world a better place.
Enjoy the rest of your break or Happy Spring.
Carpe Diem and YO YO YOLO
