So… after this past week, I realized that I’ve been working way too much, both in and out of the office. I’m a huge advocate of hard work, but it’s much more important to take care of yourself and actually [enjoy] the life you live; especially when you’re a 23-year old New Yorker with one of the most amazing cities in the world sitting at your fingertips.
Now that Spring has finally decided to show her face, I’m “taking the rest of the month off” and leaving all work strictly between the hours of 9 and 6. I kicked off this little vacation of mine at Santos Party House down in TriBeCa for Twelv Magazine’s Issue #3 Launch Party. The event was co-hosted by Lookbook.nu & Material Wrld and drinks were flowing courtesy of Caorunn Gin & Chang Beer. The naturally eclectic crowd and I were entertained by a number of performers and the chill atmosphere was perfect for clearing my mind. I can’t wait for Issue #4 to drop. I was assured by a “special source” that the next launch party will be even better.
For now, I’m getting back to my vacation. Consider this a postcard from my imaginary paradise. - JRPx
