My journey towards becoming a NY State Certified EMT has officially ended, as the journey towards the rest of my life is now just beginning. πŸš‘ Words cannot even begin to describe what this class & these past 4 months have meant to me. One of the best experiences ever! I loved everything about it & actually looked forward to going to class every week. There's a part of me that's actually gonna miss it! 😟 It's allowed me to tap into a passion I didn't even know existed, given me such an incredibly high feeling of accomplishment, and opened up my eyes in reevaluating my life as a whole in figuring out what else I want from it. That being said, this feeling of setting a goal & working hard to achieve it & accomplishing it, is a feeling I don't want to let go of anytime soon. So I have many more plans for myself on the horizon. This is just the beginning; stay tuned! πŸ’« On another note, another thing this class has done for me is allowed me to meet sooo many incredible people that I gained a new family from that I am loving the fuck out of & am gonna miss seeing every week, even though I have no doubt we're still gonna stay in touch & keep hanging out. I find it so cool how much we've bonded over these past few months, culminating in one epic hell of a well-deserved post-certification exam night. Celebrating with these crazy ass mofos our mutual accomplishment that we all got to together was just the icing on the cake. Cheers to these incredible past 4 months together with memories to last a lifetime! πŸ₯‚ (especially at the after after party, whose videos will remain between me & my new fam πŸŽ₯πŸ™ˆπŸ™Š lmao) #Cheers #EMTsquad #JustTheBeginning @laguardiacc #ShotsToSuccess

Anyone who knows me knows I always have the worst luck when it comes to cab drivers! πŸš• There seems to be an issue with a ride 9 times out of 10. If it isn’t one thing, it’s another. I hate them & they hate me. 🀷 My rants about them keep popping up in my Facebook β€œOn This Day” Memories. So I figured why not go ahead & make a compilation of them. πŸ™ƒ Each individually is funny enough on its own, but seeing them altogether like this is effin’ hilarious as hell; I was cracking up as I was putting this together! πŸ˜‚ So here you go, for your amusement, I give you β€œThrough the Years: Miss J’s Taxicab Confessions: The Rants of all Rants”. 🀣 (I should forward to Uber & Lyft to use as a marketing campaign. lmao)

While the recent deaths by suicide of Kate Spade & Anthony Bourdain are no doubt incredibly heartbreaking, let’s not forget about the rest of the population & all the β€œunknowns” who also die from suicide every single day and/or struggle with suicidal thoughts and/or mental illness on a daily basis. Let these tragedies be a morbid reminder to us all, myself included, to try to be a little more compassionate towards one another, as we never truly know what one might be going through that may not necessarily be so obvious on the outside. That being said, I would like to wish my cousin @shorts6 the best of luck at her (SEVENTH!) @afspnational #OutOfTheDarkness overnight walk in Philadelphia next weekend that she’s raised over $13,000!!! for. Love her & all the work she does for such an incredible organization as the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. πŸ’• #FightTheStigma #ItGetsBetter #MentalHealthAwareness

~05.31.18~ Another one of Cuzo's @shorts6 fundraising events that she held to raise money for her 7th @afspnational #OutOfTheDarkness overnight walk that she'll be taking part in this month in Philadelphia. This year, she not only set her highest goal yet at $10,000!, but has surpassed it, while still continuing in her efforts to raise even more for the cause. As always, in addition to enjoying some great times with great people, I also spent the night in awe of how amazing I find this woman & all of the humanitarian work she does. Her heart is filled with passion for worthy causes & it warms my own heart to watch this passion in action. Cuzo, I wish you nothing but the best & much success in your continued work with AFSP, as well as with your upcoming walk. Your advocacy for suicide prevention & fighting the stigma surrounding mental illness, and for always being so open & honest with your own struggles, and willingness to share your story, is truly inspirational. I can't even begin to imagine the number of lives you've touched already & will continue to do so throughout the rest of your lifetime. You were born for this! Keep up the amazing work! I look forward to watching your journey in taking this passion of yours even further unfold! Love you! πŸ’• @barberandbrewny #DrinkForACause #FightTheStigma #HopsForHope #HudsonValley #ItGetsBetter #MentalHealthAwareness #PursueYourPassion #SuicidePrevention @the_incomparable_mr_tate
