It’s Been a While … Update of My Life

So it has been a while since I wrote anything here, and lots has changed. Most notably the city I reside in. After months of telling myself that one day I would move to New York City, in about a weeks time I actually took the plunge to find an apartment and buy the plane ticket. I’ve been here a little over three weeks now and so far I am really enjoying my time here.

In other news I’ve also begun a buying internship with a boutique here in the city, and have found a part-time job with a children’s clothing store that I will start later this week. Hopefully this will all help me build my resume and eventually reach my goal of working as a buyer.
I’m not sure that I am going to begin writing here on a regular basis, I would like to, but we’ll just have to see how things go. I’m not really sure anyone actually reads this blog anyways, so if I do choose to write it will be in large part for myself. If anyone else happens to enjoy it, that’s great too.

Personally I think this is a terrible idea, and am surprised that investors in the company are allowing this change. Continue reading

Whether you know the definition or not, when you hear the word images of the matador, Don Quxiote, and fútbol come to mind. Continue reading

Out With The Old, In With The New

This past weekend I finished packing up my college apartment. It was a long day, starting at 7 AM, followed by 3 1/2 hour drive, followed by 2 hours of packing things up and moving them into the moving truck, followed by a 3 1/2 hour drive back home, where I finally had to unpack everything. Luckily I did not have to do this by myself, I had the help of my dad, but it was still a long and exhausting day. Continue reading
