It’s been a while since I updated the blog portion of this site, but I wanted my 100th post (!) to be about me. Rest assured that I will get to every question that you guys have asked me. I have about 50 in my inbox right now. Thanks to everybody for spreading the word about my tumblr! Time to update y’all on my life:
Although I was a full time student, most of my fall semester was eaten up by my editorial internship at Vanity Fair magazine. I did 30 hours a week unpaid. As you might guess, that made it incredibly hard to find time to do homework or concentrate on, well, anything else. The internship was just as prestigious as you’d think but I spent most of my time making copies or delivering things around the city. I love the Vanity Fair staff- really, I do. especially my supervisor Alex- but I’d say that you shouldn’t try to intern there unless you’re training to be an administrative assistant.
I’m interning at a law firm in the spring, mostly because my Metropolitan Studies major requires it. Oh yeah, I narrowed down my concentration from Social and Cultural Analysis to Metropolitan Studies.
I also got involved with a new group based out of the NYU Student Resource Center. I am now the proud treasurer of the Transfer and Transitioning Student Association! Google us. The TTSA doesn’t have a budget because we’re so new so I’m not exactly sure what being the treasurer will entail. I do strongly encourage new NYU transfers to join if you’re apprehensive about meeting people. We’ll help you get involved right away!
I live in Palladium at the moment. I get along well with all my suitemates but I’m pretty sure that this will be my last semester in the dorms. It’s time to me to strike out on my own in the big city! I’m 21 now and I don’t really need an RA checking up on me, plus I hate the NYU guest policies. I do suggest that you live in the dorms for at least your first year at NYU, though.
Anybody know of any good online magazines, newspapers, or journals I can write for this spring? This will be my first semester without a writing class in a long time and I don’t want to get rusty!
