MIA…that’s where I’ve been these past few days on social media. I’ve been in NYC for 5 days and boy has it been a whirlwind y’all! I’m missing my small hometown so much and I’m missing college in Alabama even more. Surely these feelings will all go away soon…but the first day I got here it really hit me hard and I was a frazzled mess. Like I had mascara down my face and nobody said hi to me in the dorm that I’m living it…but in their defense most of them don’t even speak english. But I was really taken back when I walked into the room I’ll be living in for 4 months. It’s the size of someones nice walk in closet…like a quarter of the size of the dorm room I lived in my freshman year at UA…for my Alabama readers…just think of Tutwiler a quarter of that size. Like I never though I’d say this but I miss Tutwiler!!! I also thought I’d be able to manage moving in on my own without my Moms help and that I did but I do wish she would have been here with me when I first got here. She would of saved me from being a crying mess with mascara down my face.
So today marks my first day of work…I start in an hour and a half and need to be on the subway in an hour…yet I’m sitting here writing…talk about priorities but I missed blogging even though it was just a quick 5 day break! For the next 4 months I will be interning at Tibi’s Retail store in Soho off Wooster street. If you are ever in the area PLEASE stop by and say hello…it would make my day! I’m so excited to get to work so I can be a busy bee and learn how Tibi runs a store day t0 day! Plus, there is even a Chobani Yogurt place two blocks away from me and you can make your own yogurt and acai bowls..something I’m totally pumped to do every morning!
If you have any NYC recommendations please let me know!
I will report back later this week to let y’all know how my first week of work went!
