My Life In NYC–So Far

It's already been a beautiful experience.

My Life In NYC–So Far

I've been living in New York City for three weeks now and I am finally beginning to feel like I am processing the things I have been doing in this city. It's currently 10 p.m. as I sit in a Starbucks in the city, trying to process the things I have been doing so I can form them into this article. I almost feel like I have been living in this city for much longer than I have been, and due to this all of my experiences seem to have merged together, as I feel like I would not be able to write on every experience I have had in this city.

What I do know is that there are a few experiences that stick out as the biggest for some quite apparent reasons. I moved to New York City a few weeks ago with one connection. That connection was the internship that I was going to be walking into, although I did not have any connections within that internship yet. I started as a Fashion Design Intern at Rebecca Minkoff the day after I moved to the city, unknowing the people I would meet upon entrance or the experiences I would obtain throughout my experience with this company. After three weeks, all I can say is this company has been amazing, and I have absolutely loved working alongside such talented and uplifting individuals. And the best part is that I have learned a lot about my industry while working alongside these amazing people.

My internship does not span throughout the entire week, so I have recently transferred to a Coach store in New York City. I anticipated the beginning of this experience a lot, and as a few days have passed since I began as a Sales Associate at this beautiful store, I can confidently say that I feel this will be an amazing experience. I have truly been happy with the experiences I have had since entering this city for the summer, and I am beyond excited for the future experiences this job will bring.

As I am currently spending the full seven days of my week interning and working, I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Being able to learn in the industry I love throughout these new experiences is absolutely worth the full work week. Not to mention the incredible people I have met throughout the process.

I have a month and a half left in New York City, and all I am wishing for now is for time to slow down a little bit. I love this city with all my heart, and as my college town of Syracuse is four hours from the city, I will continue to soak up every experience until I am able to live here full time.

Xoxo New York—you've been great, and I know you will continue to be.

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.

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.
