The Florida Trip Opened My Eyes to True Beauty of America

hero0668793

So in the last post I gave a brief introduction on my latest venture of going to Florida and it really opened my eyes to the beautiful country of America. I will forever remember groups of friends that I met and sharing my dreams and goals with them as they shared their dreams and vision.

I love this country now because everyone has a dream, they want to do more out of life. They want to go get more things in life and make things happen. Its what I am into and I want to be around people that are going after their dreams and working hard. when we are with these types of people I feel that I think different and I’m more inspired to take actions and doing everything in my power each day to inch myself closer to my dreams and visions.

I may not always be the most productive person everyday but I try to be the best person I can be each and everyday and get myself to the highest level possible both financially spiritually and emotionally. There is a whole group of people out there that waits for things to happen in life and then there’s some people out there that’s taking massive action towards their goals and dreams. I am one of the rare people in life that goes after what I want and takes what I want because I am on a path towards success.

Success is my duty my obligation and my job to fulfill my potential as a human being. When I came from Britain I was not driven towards success as I am now. But after getting influenced by my homestay family and friends and now the new group of friends I met in Florida I feel invigorated and energized to go after my dreams and visions harder than I ever have before and that gives me true passion in life to do what others are unwilling to do today so that I can be successful tomorrow.

Because one day I have dreams of being able to live in a house like above and not just one but all over the world.

For me I am about doing what’s ethical and right for my family and friends and in order to be of service I first have to be wealthy and be the best person I can be so that I can better serve others in the future. The vision of the person I want to become is so bright and so magnificent that it is blinding. I will get there one way or another and it will be epic on every level. I am always looking out for the best for myself and family in Britain but sometimes its good to just get out of your own way of worrying of society norms and just go after what I truly believe in.

I work hard and it feels good. The trip to Florida really instilled and inspired in my great commitment towards success. From now on I will approach success like my life depend on it. I will go out there and make big things happen and shake the world.

So people comment that I have the American mindset and maybe someday I won’t be saying “you know your British when..” but rather “you know you became American when…”

I am really truly enjoying my stay in America and starting to really like this blogging thing as well. Sort of like my anonymous diary to the world….

You know your Brit When You Need Chauffeuring To the Airport

florida2

You know you’re definitely British when you can’t Drive on the Michigan’s crazy Highways. I mean Michiganders go 80 MPH! That’s unheard of from where I come from. At most people are doing 55 MPH and that’s still fast in my opinion.

Anyway this blog post will be about a experience I had the other day about needing to go to the airport to go to a small gathering with friends down in Florida to escape the Michigan climate.

My home stay family had to work in the morning and they offered to give me a car to the airport but I was too nervous to handle the snowy roads and high speed highways so I had to once again get a limousine service out of Novi to get myself chauffeured! My friend recommended me this company after using them for a party bus rental for his Bachelor party and was told that they do a fine job and the owner is very friendly.

Boy do I live the good life! Haha, well just kidding I paid for the limo myself so I would of actually saved money if I could drive but what do you do. Its better to get to the destination safe and stress free before a long trip in my opinion. And a limo ride is strangely more relaxing than any other ride.

plane

My plane was to depart from 8:00 AM and I arrived right at the gate so no need to take the shuttle bus, the driver opened the door for me and was very polite and carried my bags right up to inside of the airport even though it was freezing. I really appreciated the driver’s service and I was grateful.

So because limo driver drove me right up to the gate, I had plenty of time before boarding time so I went to a Japanese restaurant nearby and got some Udon to eat. It was quite pricey but it was delicious, very good for an airport.

Now on the plane I had a great time watching the Avengers again on my iPad for the 50th time or something, I really love that movie and my favorite has to be Tony Stark, Iron Man. So that movie is the best and I enjoy watching it all the time.

The plane ride was smooth to Florida, I slept a good 2-4 hours on it which was great and made time fly by quick. I was also sitting in a empty row which was awesome and you feel like you won the lottery.

Arriving to Florida was a pleasant experience, as soon as I stepped out of the plane I could feel the warm breeze welcoming me to take off my jackets and feel the air a little bit. It was a wonderful experience.

I could feel the energy of the place was bit more lively than Michigan and I knew I was going to be in for a wild treat of fun and adventures.

Now this blog post will have to be two part because I’m typing this in Florida right now and I still have not even finished with my adventures here. Let me just say it is a great state and I love the friends that I’ve met so far. At the end of the day that’s really the #1 attractive thing for any place, is the people that live there. And so far I have to say Florida has some stellar people in my book.

The Fun Part of Being a Brit

Being a brit is fun when you begin to really appreciate who and what you are. All the quirkiness that comes from being a Brit is hilarious when you begin to really think about it hehe.

Being a Brit is funny. We have fun accents and we are easy going people.

For example, I love Ricky Gervais.

ricky

He is funny brilliant man, and I wish to be like him someday. He makes lots of money doing what he loves. What a great profession he has. I love his sense of humor and the Office will forever be my all time favorite show. To me nothing compares.

And each year I feel like he gets Funnier.

Like the show he makes with Karl is fantastic. Kindness is indeed magic.

Brits are friendly and sometimes we like to get wild on some night out on town because we know how to drink. This is what this blog is all about at the end of the day we Brits are more similar to Americans than most people realize.

I know for certain that one day when I am done with my stay in the USA, I will have friends here that will come visit me in Great Britain. We already talked about what that will be like and the kind of adventures that I can show my friends. I have to say I get lit up with excitement just by thinking about it.

Right now hard work is what I am into. I don’t have time for parties or get together because I am trying to create a brighter future for myself and my family. I work extra hard all the time and I am slowly but surely establishing my power over my competition because I take massive action when others wouldn’t.

I feel like if you’re willing to take action when other won’t you are really headed to massive success in the near future. You know I can’t foresee the future but I know that If I keep taking 10x action that I will succeed. I don’t know who put this belief in me but I will keep taking a lot of action and create a great future for myself.

Now this is the next part of my journey and I will continue to display great ability to work with others and my fellow Americans.

But I digress. Being a Brit is mostly fun, I am just in a action taking kick at the moment.

Grand Rapids Fun

grandrapids

Hello guys here I will write about incidents when you realize you are British.

So a little background story about me is that I grew up in Great Britain and ever since I was little I was fascinated by Americas. I mean I watched all American films, I dreamed about American lifestyle, read all the marvel comics, and even made American friends. And at age 25 I finally got an opportunity to go to America for work. I work for electrical wiring company and there was a sales office opening up in Michigan where I am now currently staying.

This company produces LED lighting to fiber optic wiring, and I am happy that I am now living in the USA but not so ideal that it was Michigan of all places, I don’t know… it’s just very cold. Maybe I haven’t gotten used to it yet. So I trudge along for now in the snow and try to drive safe here.

Anyway the other day I was with work buddies in Grand Rapids, MI when one of my co-worker decided we should get a limousine to celebrate our first month together and go out on the town.

It sounded like a great idea so we proceded to scan through Google and found one reputable looking company to get in touch with. It had pretty impressive vehicles so we were pretty stoked about it.

I just wanted to go out that night and party a little bit but we decided to get few fifth and proceeded to drink. The limousine arrived on time and it was quite the nice one, a lot better than what I was used to. You definately know you are Brit when the limo you imagined was just a old black stretch you see in 1980’s movies. This limousine was a long a hummer stretch and the inside was very large and cool.

I’ve never been in such a sleek vehicle before from the lighting, to speaker system, to luxurious looking interior. It was quite simply fantastic.

So we went couple blocks due south to downtown Grand Rapids and went out to hit the bars in town pretty hard. Everything was bright and exciting and I was started to get to know my co-workers well and having a great time.

It wasn’t till 2 AM rolled around that I noticed that I had drunk little too much and things were a bit hazy to say the least. Luckily we had a limousine to take us home so we were safe. We got back into the limo and decided we had enough fun for the night so we went our merry ways back to our apartments and the limousine did a fine job.

Let me tell you few points that made me feel that yes I’m def a Brit

1. American women dance by grinding

2. American Hip Hop is played more often then pop songs

3. Liquor seems 2x stronger here in the states

So yea every single day I notice various things that’s different about myself and American culture. Perhaps I’m still under culture shock. I wonder how long it takes for one to completely integrate into a new culture. And how long does it take for one to become fluent and unrecognizable from others in the culture.

I have to tell you though in the States it does feel less restricted and more free. Like there is more space here and people live more vicariously. People seem less rigid, now maybe this is because I’m in Michigan and not in a big city like where I was from, but I def dig the new lifestyle of little bit slower pace, and everyone seems pretty open and friendly for the most part. I’m not sure but there seems to be a lot of value to look up to in the States and I will work to uncover all those things.

All in all I am enjoying my stay here and hope to continue exploring, anyway this limousine experience was one in the books. And the big plus was that I got to know my co-workers better and hopefully it leads to better synergy in the work place and I get to have even more fun integrating into American culture well that’s it for now guys. Talk to you soon.
