I leave for New York this Saturday and begin my internship on Monday. This month has been absolutely packed full of insanity so much so that I’m almost looking at the single minded focus of the NY internship as a mental vacation. My suitcase is propped open in the corner as I try to think about packing not for a trip but moving my entire wardrobe. Well, not my entire wardrobe. Were I to...

I know you have all been desperate for me to post something since your lives revolve around my tumblr (as they should), so I want to apologize for the lack of postings. I just found a new apartment in San Francisco. It’s a bit of a fixer-upper so I’ve been coordinating painters and handymen and cleaners, and packing, on top of trying to nail down dates for the NY internship, decide...
