The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly - Good Bye 2011 - Part 1

2011 was a great year. So many things happened. It's wild just sitting back and thinking about it.

I'm going to break down month to month what went on in my lil Tameeka Time life for this year. This blog post will be broken up into a 3 part series.

January 2011 -   

In January I started a vlog series based on recapping Jersey Shore's season 3 - this was huge was for me, the videos have so many hits on youtube, it was also a lot of work for myself and my producer (CortesNyc). We set up a green screen in the studio, we would watch the episodes when they aired on Thursday nights, write my recaps, record the recap video on the weekend, I'd edit, he'd work on the graphics and original music, we did it for months. It was a good experience, I got a lot of reaction from friends and family members. I will do another vlog series in the future. It may not be a weekly series but I can definitely see my team doing a monthly video series.

February 2011 - 

In February, I continued to work on my Jersey Shore Recap Vlogs and the big deal at the time was that I purchased a badge to attend South by South West. I was really excited! For years I've heard many great stories of Texas fun. More on SXSW to come later. Also in February, my blog series Sleepy Monday's was featured on a site called Poopt.

March 2011 - 

My March was all about going to Austin, Texas / SXSW. This was my first time going to South by South West. For those of you who do not know what SXSW is, it's a 10 day conference, filled with film festivals, music shows and interactive meet ups organized by days. The majority of my blog posts are about the trip or pictures of what I ate, or the events I attended in Texas. Austin's a great city and I had the time of my life. I really recommend everyone experiencing what's it's like to party all day and all night. The lesson I did learn is to drink lots of red bull and coffee, book hotels and flights a head of time and make sure you are aware of all the parties going on in town. I also had an extra special surprise while I was there, one of my oldest and dearest friends came to visit me, she was living in Houston at the time and she managed to spend a day with me. I was so grateful to be around so many wonderful people. My only complaint is South West Airline, the staff was not helpful at all, I had 2 layovers and their seating policy sucks so bad. I prefer assigned seats, the flights were safe but so uncomfortable. But I must say March was a great month!

April 2011 - 

Blog-wise I started doing a photo series called "Photo of the Day". It was a great project for me, because it gave me an excuse to post everyday. After SXSW I had to give myself time to recover and this was the perfect way to do so. Also, in April the weather started to warm up here in NY so I started to spend a lot of time grabbing drinks with friends after work and hitting the gym (two opposites I know). I also was able to spend some time with some special people in April because of the annual Keith and The Girl week.
