It really is crazy to think of the roller coaster I have been on since my last post. But I am officially back and am not giving up on all the hard work I put into this blog over the years. So let me give you a quick recap of my life over the past couple months.
This past March and April I moved to New York City and completed a marketing internship with Nicole Miller. It was the most hands on internship imaginable and I loved it. It really gave me a glimpse inside what life was like working in the fashion industry. It is exactly how people describe it, fast paced and crazy, but when you are actually living it... it is that much more crazy. Yes, I met some really intense people that gave me a hard time but in the end it was really what I needed to kick start me on a career that I have desired for so long.
Then I graduated. It was momentous and it was extremely depressing. Adjusting to the real world after going to a college with a national football title and more bars then classrooms is just as tough as it sounds. Three months later, I am still back at home deciding what to do with the rest of my life. And not to get emotional or anything but getting turned down from the hundreds of companies I have applied to is extremely wearing on the pride. But with summer flying by with me still not on my ideal career path yet, it is more important than ever to keep my head held high.
After digging myself out of the hole of graduation depression, I went back to Nordstrom to make some money for my NYC fund. Although it really isn't where I want to be, I can't help to think I am lucky to be able to live at home and work for a great company all while still searching for my dreams in New York.
So that brings me to now. Something I have always loved doing is blogging. So if I can't have New York right now, my blog is something to keep my head in the fashion game still.
Here are some photos of my life in New York!
