1 January 2014: BANG ON! NYC

  • New Year’s resolution #1 – Live like my life depends on it – CHECK so far
  • New Year’s resolution #5 – travel to three new countries – Dominican Republic – CHECK (2 to go)

This new year started on a high note – figuratively speaking. Bang On! NYC held an event in some warehouse/old factory in Brooklyn. Awesome crazy perfect new years eve. Being around with a bunch of New Yorkers is always entertaining. What a riot. We left early morning to get to my bags so I could get to the airport in time for my nine o’clock flight. Mechealle and I landed in Puerto Plata in the Dominican republic early afternoon and I was checked in STILL in party clothes and party bracelets by3pm ( I didn’t have scissors). By the time I went to bed at 3am, I had gone 43 hours without sleeping. I did a series of FIRSTS on this trip.

First time I had:

  1. Spent more than 4 days at a beach place (that I remember)
  2. Swam in the ocean without knowing the water was salty – didn’t taste/swallow any
  3. Worn a bikini
  4. Gone longer than 43 hours without sleeping
  5. Stayed at an all inclusive beach resort (I was in Mombasa once with a school team, I don’t remember how that worked)
  6. Packed a tripod and not used it
  7. Taken antibiotics (amoxicillin for persistent cold/bronchitis/flu/cough interfering with my vacation/who knows). Cute doctor said no alcohol with antibiotics. This tablet is like a drug cookie and is so big, and twice a day – so probably crappy PK. I decided I could squeeze in a drink or so somewhere during the elimination phase no problem. I ignored the other reasons why EtOH may be a problem. But wine with dinner couldn’t hurt.  Then at some point I googled my hypothesis and the antibiotics still worked really well


New Years Eve, NYC. That's when they "Launched the Rocket"
