An article I once read- to put it simply- said that to be a leader means they always have to rise above situations and introduce new perspectives to his/her team members. The leader must be able to inspire their members and earn their respect. This is a very broad definition, which looks easier read than done. 

 

Everyone possesses different personalities and character. It is hard to find the ‘right’ group of friends or cliques that lasts forever. Nothing can be forever if each individual establishes relationships with others based on their own mentality and set of values. Now, this does not mean that you have to bent forth and change for each other completely but it means to respect one another by taking a step back to give a little.

 

A leader in my mind doesn’t have to be the strongest, smartest, best looking or even the most creative in the group. However, a leader is the one who makes the most sacrifice and he/she is the one who knows how to manage and train a motivated team.

 

I have had a lot of experience being leaders for different positions and my experience tells me that no matter how perfect and how well I get a job done, how amazing my idea may be or even how obviously wrong someone else is; there will always be team members who would spite you for the sake of their own selfish private reasons. In these situations, the worst thing to do would be to stoop to their level. Sometimes, there’s no doubt that you’ve been wrongly accused, it is what you make of it that counts. There will always be people waiting for you to fall, so do the unexpected and rise above the situation to remind them why you were chosen as the leader in the first place.

KIA “A Dream Car. For Real Life”
This commercial says it all. As much as it stereotypes men and women in terms of the things they aspire to be and a list of things that they want to own, this Superbowl commercial captured the attention of its audience with its comical view of the “battle of the sexes" as well as Victoria Secret supermodel endorsement.

Can’t wait for fashion week! If my classes weren’t so hectic, I’d want to intern there as well. NYC I’ll be there in three weeks, wait for me :)

Having been in Michigan for three and a half years now, I hear lots of people buzzing about Boyne Mountain as being one of the best places to ski at. With only one semester left to go, my friends and I decided to make Boyne our graduation ski trip. On the first day of our one night two days trip, we decided to go for a trail ride on the snow mobile.

 

It was a whole new thrilling experience for about the the first half an hour until we noticed little things such as how the machines look kind of old and one of them wasn’t functioning as well. As the excitement starts to fade a little, we started to have a tingling feeling and flashbacks soon of the owner’s advice about not over-heating the machines, can’t go too fast for too long, 3 stop sign rule and no trail map for a two hour ride. Tiny suspicions ultimately let to this…

The snow mobile’s reverse function wasn’t working and gets stuck a lot of the times. Being in good spirits, we all thought it was kind of funny and actually enjoyed the experience of pushing each other’s snow mobile around! 

The next day, I heard from my ski instructor that even though the snow mobile company we went to was the closest, it also had the worst reputation for having the most lacking snow mobiles at an overpriced range. So my advice for those who wants to go on a trail ride at Boyne, make sure you visit the snowmobile rental 20 miles down the highway. It is further but probably more worthwhile.

As for me, even though our choice was pretty unfortunate, I had a blast with my brilliant group of friends regardless!

I have been doing some interior design work for home lately and came across the Dale Chihuly collection in a newspaper article. A month after, I was fortunate enough to actually see the stunning artwork in person at the CityCenter in Vegas. He really beautifies the tiny intricacies of nature and life as seen in renowned works such as Chihuly Over Venice and Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem.
 Chihuly’s glass sculptures are breathtaking and such an inspiration.
