Another Article Written In An NYC Starbucks

After a month-and-a-half of interning, working, and living my best life in this wonderful city.

Another Article Written In An NYC Starbucks
Krisztina Papp

I am starting to see a trend with the articles I continuously write in Starbucks—but there's something so special about Starbucks in the city. I'm not sure if it is the vast amount of people circulating in and out of the store with venti macchiatos, iced matcha lattes (which is what I am currently sipping on), and coffees in their hands, or the beautiful views while looking outwards from the Starbucks windows. What I do know is that it has been a very busy past few weeks, and I have a lot to vent out into the universe.

As mentioned in previous articles, I have been spending my summer interning at Rebecca Minkoff and working at Coach. Alongside these two positions, I have been attending fashion shows as a backstage crew member—another of which is tomorrow—and working hard to set aside time to see friends and experience as much as I can of this beautiful city. While here, I have made many, many new connections—and have just told myself to let go and just live.

I am currently looking at three-and-a-half weeks left in the city, and it makes me extremely sad to acknowledge that in less than a month this amazing experience will come to an end. I have been working extremely hard to dip my feet into as many things possible that will push my career in fashion, and I have no regrets with how things are going so far.

The reason I have been living with no regrets in this city stems from the effort I have been putting in to maximize every hour of each day while grasping as many experiences as possible. While working nearly seven days a week, these past few weeks were filled with an amazing day of NYC World Pride (my first Pride experience in NYC), catching up with old friends who had happened to be in the city for the summer or were visiting the city, working on an Express and TOM's campaign, working on model shoots and another amazing experiences with my internship, and warming up to the environment I have been in for a month and a half.

I began to realize how strong the connections I have made in the city have grown since moving here when one of my friends from my internship recently left for a vacation. While recognizing that I will only see her for a few days when she returns because I will then have to leave to head back to Syracuse University, I was able to understand that I have already met such amazing people—leaving me very excited about the connections I make while I move to the city after college.

After thinking about the article content I would like to continue to produce, I have come to the realization that updating my readers on what I learn as I embark on these new experiences is something I want people to read. As I step into these next few weeks of my summer in NYC, I will make sure to update you on where things go from here. Although I do not want this summer to end, I am very excited about what these next few weeks will bring.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
