How to Move to New York

There are always jobs in New York...even in the middle of an economic recession. People get paid more in New York City too! So when your boss treats you like shit and shakes his millionaire asshole head at you like you are stupid when you are really putting forth all you've got...moving to NY seems oh so nice!

You won't need a car in New York. No more being ripped off by mechanics. No more rednecks with dog testicles hanging from the back of their pickup trucks. New York is full of people who actually are doing something with their lives. Working hard. And I bet they know how to spell. Everyone has a hope and a dream in NY. Let's go!

1. You have got to read about New York. Learn the areas, how to get a job in New York, how to get an apartment in New York City...etc. You can look all over online at various blogs. But having a book packed full with info is best. I got the red one below at home along with a map of Manhattan. Make sure the map also has a subway map too.

2. Plan an escape! Some books even give tips on the actual moving. The best ways to move. I would prefer Greyhound if I didn't have a dog. If you have small pets you may have to drive yourself or go by plane. Planes will not fly pets in the summer or winter. Pick a place to live. Research it too!

3. Visit New York first. You need to get to know the area. This will help you find an apartment faster etc. Again, a book about moving to New York and a map will help with the visit that will help you with the move!

Want a Successful Business?

(Oragami art by Won Park)

Try being simple and minimal. Look at its one of the most successful website in the history of the World Wide Web. is still relatively simple and easy to understand. and on the other hand has made several "improvements" but it has gotten more complicated. And once you make a website more complex by adding features, you can't take them away.

I deleted both of my Myspaces this morning to try and make a new one but it is extremely complicated. I may just say goodbye to Myspace for good.

I think the same rule goes for everything else. The best cars are simple cars. Not too many features. Just because its simple doesn't mean its cheaply made either. Best books are simple and to the point. best clothes are simple. No one wants something with several layers, belts, straps or buttons. Just put it on and go.

Too many features can scared off customers. Too many rules in a contest will scared off people. Too many words in a contract will scared off buyers.

Too many ingredients in a food or too many items on a sandwich.

Simple simple simple.

Too many options can be a bad thing. Kinda like too many bills.

People want simple. One easy hidden fees.

How to make life more enjoyable

Real heirs and heiresses have a very enjoyable life. We can't take away some of the things that make life a greiving, job stress, bills, etc. But we can always add some things to make us enjoy life a little more.

Things you should try that will make your life more enjoyable:

1. Sweatpants. Yes! I had to buy some a few weeks ago for a treadmill stress test. I put them on and they were so soft. I remember in college I wore hoodies but I never tried the sweatpants. These are the ones with the drawstrings so they always fit. And you can wear them around the house or out when you run errands. Then I read Paris Hiltons book "Confessions of an Heiress" and she also writes about how comfortable sweatpants are. You gotta try them really.

2. Keeping a journal. Remember I said it helps to count your blessings. Every morning I find myself grumbling to work. But I need to think of the good things. Keeping a journal makes you write down those good things. I understand keeping track of the bad gotta get through em. But keep getting excited about the good things. List them...everyday. Like mine today would be: nice weather, there is nothing wrong with my tires, I don't have to pay any bills until payday, the recession is over, I am on lunch break now, I showed my readers my silly Youtube page, I have a nice purse, etc. I could go on and on. You should too!

3. Fruit flavored tea. Its healthy and its fruit flavored. Its not like the usually tea flavor. Remember to add honey or it won't taste right. Its like a little healthy treat. Boil the water, put the tea bag in the mug, pour the hot water in the mug, pull the tea bag in and out of the water...up and down for about a minute, throw tea bag away, squirt some honey in the mug, stir so the honey dissolves, then add some cold water and I put it in the fridge to chill. And I drink it later.

4. Keep track of the funny things that happen to you. Just little funny stories. Like I was looking for a picture of Paris Hilton to put on my and he walked into my office and the computer froze. Now he thinks I like girls. HA! Paris always gets me in trouble.

How to be happier

Not how to be happy. Just happier. Positive thinking. But what does that mean? Here is a method. Try counting your blessings. We always pay attention to the crap in life. Like going to work, paying bills, getting sick, and so many other problems. When Paris Hilton tweets about how she is loving life....she is focusing on the good. She isn't gonna tell you that bad things that happen in her life unless its funny like her phone breaking.

So try focusing on the good. Like today I have to go to the doctors again and I have a lot of work and I just want to go home. But I need to think about how I got a free meal from Arbys because of an advertising promotion we are doing, and my "club sandwiches not seals" hoodie came in the mail, and its raining (I love the rain).

Its like I said before...changing that orphan mentality to an heiress mentality.

An orphan would say..."I'm tired...I want to go home."

An heiress/heir would say "ITS FRIDAY! And I get to sleep in tomorrow"

Here is some good news. I am still gonna post that Mother's Day chat on here. And you guys can still follow me on twitter since I don't have internet at home. So there's some nice things to think about. I got some other neato stuff too.

And if you want to find out where you can get a "club sandwiches not seals" hoodie. Here is a link: club sandwiches not seals hoodie. Make sure to get the right size. Mine is a small.

What to do on a dead loved ones birthday?

Real heirs and heiresses have dead parents. My mothers birthday is coming up. Its not that much of a big deal but I do notice it. Of course it doesn't make sense to go out and buy something for her. But it does make sense to do something that would make her proud. Of course I should always try to make her proud. Its kinda like a new years resolution but its on her birthday. If I were in school I could study extra hard for a test or something etc. But I am out of college. And I am already trying to move to New York to make her proud.

I think its a cool idea to try to make her proud for her birthday. Its like the sadness doesn't stop me from doing what I should do in life. Its like she is still here.

Somethings aren't that easy to accomplish in a day. Some things take longer. Like I thought trying to do some modeling for mom would be cool. But its kinda hard to find a photographer and get enough guts to do it. Plus it takes practice. I'll try to think of some things to do for her Bday.

Things you can do to make your loved one proud on their birthday:

- Eat healthy for a day
- stop smoking
- donate to
- try working out
- vow to do better in school
- pay off that stupid credit card
- recycle
- take acting classes
- take modeling classes
- try to get into a gallery
- make some art that she/he used to make
- cook something she/he used to cook
- learn to cook
- donate to a cause that helps fight against what took them away. ie: American Cancer Society
- keeping this blog going!

If you think of any more please comment. This can help all of us.

Dorothy Miller was my Grandmother

Dorothy Miller, who died in July and whose art collection is being auctioned by Christie’s next week, was MoMA’s first curator and director Alfred Barr’s most trusted collaborator, a Greenwich Village scenester for several decades, and the woman who did the most for postwar American art.

In July, Dorothy Miller quietly passed away in her Greenwich Village apartment, seven months shy of her 100th birthday. She was remembered at a MoMA memorial service last week, and an auction of her art collection at Christie’s in November will remind the latest generation of collectors, connoisseurs, dealers, and scholars of her role in the postwar ascension of American art. Auction experts predict the paintings, sculpture, folk art, and furniture that decorated her rent-controlled one-bedroom apartment on 8th Street (which had no doorman, no alarm, and no insurance) will sell for well over $12 million.

Books by Gloria Vanderbilt

I was going to do a post on books by famous heiresses but turns out Gloria has written quite a few. Now don't worry all you males. I will still post stuff relivant to you.

Gloria Laura Morgan Vanderbilt (born February 20, 1924) is an American artist, actress, heiress, and socialite most noted as an early developer of designer blue jeans. She is a member of the prominent Vanderbilt family of New York and mother of CNN's Anderson Cooper.

She became heiress to a half share in a five million dollar trust fund upon her father's death from cirrhosis when she was 15 months old. The rights to control this trust fund while Vanderbilt was a minor belonged to her mother, who traveled to and from Paris for years, taking her daughter with her. They were accompanied by a beloved nanny young Gloria named "Dodo", who would play a tumultuous part in the child's life, and her mother's identical twin sister Thelma, who was the mistress (lover) of The Prince of Wales during this time. As a result of frequent spending, her mother's use of finances was scrutinized by the child Vanderbilt's paternal aunt Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. Whitney, a sculptor and philanthropist, wanted custody of the young heiress and soon a famous custody trial became the lead story of 1933. The trial was so scandalous that at times, the judge would make everyone leave the room so as to listen to what young Vanderbilt had to say without anyone influencing her. Some people heard weeping and wailing inside the court room. Testimony was heard depicting the mother as an unfit parent; Vanderbilt's mother lost the battle and Vanderbilt became the ward of her Aunt Gertrude.

I Did Not Love My Adopted Child

An article on the 33-year-old Tennessee nurse Torry Hansen, who sent the 7-year-old son she'd adopted on a plane back to Russia.
I Did Not Love My Adopted Child

People need to realize that adopting and or becoming a guardian isn't going to be some easy fantasy. These kids are going through a lot. I can't speak for all orphaned kids but I know I had my little problems. And eventually my aunt gave up. She said some terrible hurtful things. Saying she wanted me out of the house.

Fine! Give up! Be a crappy parent. What good are you? Why did you even adopt in the first place if you weren't gonna try your best?

Idea for Mother's Day

I thought it might be a cool idea to have a chat on here on Mother's Day. We don't have to talk about our moms or anything like that. We can talk about anything. What do you guys think? Maybe for a few hours at least. I can post the chat box on here and you don't even have to register to chat.

Now if you think it would be a cool idea you gotta comment and let me know.

How to have an Heiress Mentality

Orphans at any age need to have an heir or heiress mentality. Not just a survival mentality. We used to visit this website thinking we don't have anything in this world and that we are all alone. We need to focus on the good and realize that we are smarter and more hard working that those who have parents.

Just show you know what an heir is:

heir (âr)
1. A person who inherits or is entitled by law or by the terms of a will to inherit the estate of another.
2. A person who succeeds or is in line to succeed to a hereditary rank, title, or office.
3. One who receives or is expected to receive a heritage, as of ideas, from a predecessor.

Having an heir mentality can also help the grieving process. Its focusing on the good. I also think it would make my mom proud.

Try focusing on the benfits of being an orphan and it makes you feel more like an heir.

1. We can save money since we don't have to buy Mother's or Father's Day cards.

2. We don't have to visit or deal with relatives on holidays. We can just stay at home and relax.

3. If we have a money problem we have brains and do something about it. We don't ask our parents for help like little spoiled brats.

4. Most people freak out over the dumbest littlest things. We don't freak out about much. Not anymore.

5. If orphaned by the age of 18 you could qualify for a full ride scholarship. That means you get to go to college for free. No student loans to pay off.

The list goes on. I just need to think of more.

Look at Pippi Longstockings for example. She isn't real exactly but I'm almost like her. An orphan but also an heiress. She had all those gold coins, a dead mom, a sailor dad who is never around and she lived in a big house. They totally glorified the orphan life. We need to focus on that.

Yes there are some things we were never taught...but this blog should cover most of it.

So instead of waking up every morning wondering "Why me? Why must I be an orphan" try thinking like an heir. Life is more simple since we are orphans. We are smarter and more harder working. Life should be easier for us. Lets make it that way.

The Recession is Over

I have read several articles and have heard on the news that the economic recession is over. People are spending more. Its only a matter of time before there will be more jobs out there.

Just remember to be wise with your money so you can stay on top in case of another recession.

1. Pay off your credit cards and never get another credit card ever again.

2. Put some money into a savings account. I had $500 in the past quarter and when I got my quarterly compounded bank statement I got an extra $1.50. Yay.

3. Always keep some extra money saved up for emergencies.

4. Buy yourself treats only once in a while. Like one a month...or every other month.

5. Read up on my past posts about using money wisely.

Now that the recession is over there will be jobs soon, people will buy stuff again, prices may get higher but you may also get a pay raise at work. Its the end of scrapping by and being scared shitless. Its the beginning of becoming an heiress instead of an orphan. We have inherited the world.

From Orphan to Heiress

I'm sick of constantly being reminded that I am an orphan. I think we need to think of the good things that come from being orphaned. We need to go from an orphan mentality to and heir mentality. We are blessed and not cursed. Yes, we love your lost loved ones and we miss them but from our loss we have benefits and have also learned to be more thankful for what we have. We have to work harder to survive. We have been enlightened. We are better than the others. Instead of saying "yeah my mom is dead". I can say "I got to go to college for free since my mother passed away. Free food, housing, cable, books, tuition, and schools supplies". yeah. We have a better life. I may not have inherited much but things are better.

I found this below. Some of its just silly crap to me. But some I think is relevant to us (see #1). Its not "my mom died of cancer and now I am alone" but its "my mom was a great artist and I got to go to college for free cus of her" or "my dad just got back from Hong Kong" not "I never met my dad but I think he lived in Hong Kong". No one believes us anyways when we say we are orphans. We sound kinda stupid when we say that anyways. Its pretty much like being a kid forever. Its the nice easy life we need to have. So change your mentality. Its so much happier.

Paris Hilton Book: Confession Of An Heiress

1. Instructions on How to be an Heiress (sneak preview)
Choose your chromosomes wisely. This may seem like ludicrous advice, but actually it isn't. If an heiress is in control of everything, why shouldn't she be in control of who she's born to? You know how everyone always says there are no accidents? Well, I believe you choose who you're born to. And if you do have the misfortune of being born into the wrong family, remember: No one has to know. Airing family laundry is definitely a big no-no for an heiress. You can always reinvent yourself and your lineage if you have to. Half of Park Avenue and Bel Air have. Lineage can be a state of mind.

If you are going to be an heiress, you can't have a normal name, unless you're British. All British people have plain names, and that works pretty well over there. But in America, you've got to have a name that stands out. I love my name. Paris is my favorite city. And Paris without the P is "heiress," isn't it? In sixth grade, people would make fun of me and call me "France" or "London." Well, I'm going to name my own daughter Paris! An heiress needs to have a glamorous — or a really cute — name. My sister Nicky's name is cute. An heiress's dog also needs to have a cute name. My teacup Chihuahua is named Tinkerbell, so she acts like a Tinkerbell. If you have a cute name, you will act cute. If you have a glam name, you will act glam. It's that simple. Future moms should make a note of that.

Pile makeup on and never, ever have a breakout. Perfect skin is a birthright, and it means you can never really take a bad photograph. No amount of junk food or Coca-Cola can change your skin. And if, God forbid, it does, have a great makeup artist standing by. It can't hurt.

Greasy chips or perfect crab cakes. Cotton candy or caviar. Fast food or fois gras. French fries or black-pepper shrimp from the Ivy in L.A. Cheesy junk or expensive cheese. Being an heiress is all about extremes.

Learn how to pose in an onslaught of flashing lights without blinking. (Note to celebrities: You can always improve.) Always know your best angle — for your body and your face — and work it. Study your own pictures and you'll figure it out.


Normal hours are for normal people. You never want to be normal. Anyone can be normal. How boring. I'm yawning.


Then do what you want. That way, no one ever gets mad at you. They get very confused, then blame it on themselves. If anyone confronts you, smile sweetly and act coyly. Particularly with guys. And bosses. Try not to have bosses if you can avoid them. Or have your manager deal with them.

Lose one all the time. That way, if you haven't called someone back, you can blame it on the lost phone. It's very important to get a new model the minute it comes out. Nokias, Ericksons, Motorolas — those are the coolest. Always have at least two numbers: a friend line and a business line. If I feel like avoiding a call, I answer my phone in a phony British accent and say, "Hello, Paris Hilton's line," or something like that. I do that if I'm expecting a call from a guy I've changed my mind about and I don't want to have dinner with him anymore. Every woman has the right to change her mind from time to time; therefore heiresses have more of a right.

This is particularly important if you're going to be photographed a lot, which I am. If you double up, people will think you have only one outfit — and that's annoying. And untrue.

That's for girls with no imagination who just buy what magazines tell them to buy. Look for the cool, unusual dress that no one else has the nerve to wear. Dare to be different. Dare to wear colors and prints. All the boring New York socialite girls wear black. Do you ever see a girl in a magazine wearing black? I don't think so. Don't run out and buy the bag of the moment or the dress of the moment. I like expensive things, but I like cheap things, too. I like anything that's cute and makes me happy. I haven't met too many clothes I didn't like — except black clothes.

If you're depressed, wear black. Black is for people who don't want to have fun with clothes and who are always hiding — in other words, depressed. No one with a truly great body wears black, trust me. And if you really want to stand out and be confident, wear white.

Invite everyone you know to come along. If there aren't enough hours in the day, don't worry, there will be. You live in a different time zone: Heiress Time.

It throws people off and makes them think you're "adorable," and less together than you really are.

Not boring. There's a huge difference.

in limited amounts, but only with your serious boyfriend, because that's exactly what someone with a famous family name is NOT supposed to do. It makes other boys think you're dangerous, so they will all want you, too. Guys like women they're a little afraid of. No, make that a lot afraid of.

It intimidates guys. If a guy does have the nerve to approach you when your bodyguard is around, you know he's got to be pretty fearless.

It looks like you've been in an exotic (i.e., expensive) place. It can never look fake, even if it is. Get the spray-on tan, so it doesn't get all over your clothes.

Everyone expects you to have the same hairstyle in every photo, and only dull people do that. Tell everyone you're wearing hair extensions even if you aren't, because they don't expect you to tell them.

It shows you have no nerve. Only drink real colas, caffeine-packed energy drinks, or Vitamin Water. Hate champagne, because that's what everyone expects you to love. Energy drinks are the best party drinks. You never get tired. You never have a hangover. And you can make fun of all the loaded people who think they're clever but are really acting stupid.

And sweaty guys who insist on kissing you when they come up to say hello. There's nothing worse than a sweaty guy who kisses you on both cheeks. Once is bad enough, but to have to go through it twice is really two times too much.

Always surprise people. That way, they will never get tired of you.

I went on Saturday Night Live soon after my name was in the headlines every day for something I wasn't too proud of, and which had really upset my family. On "Weekend Update" with Jimmy Fallon, the script had him asking me, "Is it hard to get a room in the Paris Hilton? Is it roomy?" and he wanted to cut it. But I wouldn't let him. No way. That was the funniest line. And I got the upper hand with the media the moment he said it on national TV. That's when it all clicked and things started to change. People knew I could laugh at myself, and that one bad incident was not going to make me lock myself in my room.

Once an orphan always an orphan?

My aunt says I am not an orphan just because my father is still alive and I am not a child anymore. She is a heartless idiot.

I know I am certainly at a disadvantage since my mother is dead and I have never met my father. Wishing everyday to call my mom to talk to her. Wishing men would treat me better if they knew my father was looking out for me. This is why I have Exodus 22:22-24 tattooed on my back because so many people don't believe adult orphans have it difficult. I know some may think I am playing the victim. I have wanted to post on having a heiress mentality rather than an orphan mentality and focus on the good things that come from being orphaned. See I may not technically be an orphan....but I was orphaned as a child so I should still be an orphan unless I was adopted.

22 "Do not take advantage of a widow or an orphan. 23 If you do and they cry out to me, I will certainly hear their cry. 24 My anger will be aroused, and I will kill you with the sword; your wives will become widows and your children fatherless.

Whatever people.

Ghandi was an orphan

When Gandhi was sixteen, his father died - four years later he lost his mother. "The outstanding impression my mother has left on my memory is that of saintliness," Gandhi later wrote in his book of memoir, An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments With Truth (1927-29).

Be the change that you want to see in the world.
Mohandas Gandhi

Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts.
Mohandas Gandhi

But for my faith in God, I should have been a raving maniac.
Mohandas Gandhi

Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances
Mohandas Gandhi

Easter Advice : Take it Easy!

I don't have much to say about the upcoming holiday. Just take it easy. Relax. I supposed it can be a sad and lonely day for an orphan. Thats why I went ahead and posted this. I haven't forgotten you guys. I am having some friends over for Easter.

Hard boil some eggs, hang with friends. I do faintly remember Easter when Mom was around. Big baskets usually hidden in the exact same place as the year before. Palm Sunday was much more memorable for us. We would always go to church and get a cross made out of palm leaves. But I don't think this Sunday will be as heartbreaking as the holidays to come.

I have been reading about Gandhi. His father died when he was 15. I went to the doctor and I have been losing too much weight. I need to eat more.

Take care, and take it easy.

Leave some comments on what you are doing on Easter. Maybe some memories.
