It’s been a few weeks since I last blogged, and I feel like I should give you all an update before I start posting my regular content again. Life has been crazy and busy, but also wonderful, and I haven’t really talked about my life in New York since moving here.
I really love school and getting to study the business side of the fashion industry is such a rewarding experience. It’s crazy to step aside from it all and think about how I’m on a path that’s going to lead me to working in fashion. It’s surreal, and I feel so grateful to be living in one of my favorite cities in the world.
I’ve met so many great people here, a lot of them who are also fashion studies majors (if any of you are reading this… you know how much I adore you). It’s so enlightening and special being able to talk to people who have the same passion as you but are all on their own, unique path.
I have a lot more free time now that I’m not in class for six hours everyday, and it’s insane to think that less than sixth months ago I’d sit in a classroom for hours on end. I love the freedom that college brings, but I do still spend a fair amount of my time studying. No surprise, there; we all know I’d work 24/7 if I could.
When it comes to living on my own and being so far away from family, I’m handling it a lot better than I expected. Time aren’t always the easiest; I miss my parents, my twin sister and my cats SO much, and there are times where I’d do anything to be with them for just a few minutes. However, I would not trade this experience for the world because living here is a dream come true. I’m getting a lot more used to life in New York, and usually visit the city every week. Speaking of, I know how to navigate the metro system by myself, and I’m honestly quite proud. I love how easy and quick it is to get into Manhattan.
Overall, I’m really happy with my experience here so far! I know there’s so much more in store for me, too; it’s only been about three months – who knows what the future holds?
I’m heading out tomorrow morning to my new home in Seattle (yay!) for Thanksgiving break, and I’m planning on cranking out a LOT of blog posts while I’m there. If there’s anything you want to see, be sure to leave a comment down below.
I’m endlessly grateful for all of you. Thanks for sticking with me and being such great readers!
Talk to you soon!
