Hello Richmond


Hello! I'm baaaaaaaack in Richmond and I'm so happy to be back. And while I'm happy to be back, I also predict that this summer in Richmond will prove to be the busiest period of my life so far. I'm juggling working at a country club, babysitting, interning and taking online courses this summer.

But I don't think that this summer is going to be busy in an unpleasant way. Partially this summer will be so busy because of my plans to graduate early. I'm no longer happy at Philadelphia University but because of several different factors, I cannot transfer schools. Instead, I'm putting extra pressure on myself so that I graduate in May 2016 instead of May 2017. One of the things that I need to do to insure my early graduation is take a couple summer courses this summer. I'm enrolled at J. Sarge to take an art history and ethics class online; I'm fairly confident that the courses won't be too hard and will be easy enough to handle.

Additionally, since this is my last summer as a college student (and I'll start my actual career in just a year!), I wanted to gain more experience in the fashion industry through a summer internship. Therefore, I'm interning for Kay Adams of Anthill Antiques one day a week this summer. I'm really looking forward to my internship and have a feeling that it will be one of my favorite parts of this summer. Watch out for more posts about my internship to come soon (I start my internship this coming Monday.)

To be able to attend my last year at Philadelphia University and attempt not to totally sink in student debt, I'm working at a Country Club as well as babysitting this summer to earn money. While these two jobs don't correlate with what I want to do after I graduate, they are jobs that I can succeed at and allow me to earn as much money as possible this summer.

So it'll be a busy summer! But one that I'm definitely looking forward to.
