Today I am officially and apartment owner! Since I’ll be working in New York City all summer (read about that crazy excitement here), I needed to get a place in the city and fortunately found an adorable little townhouse in the Upper West Side. I will be living there with my twin (yayayay!) and a friend (yayayay again!). I am unbelievably excited (we are right around the corner from Juilliard, Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, the Met Opera House, Central Park, a Trader Joe’s, a Whole Foods — ok, I have to stop before I explode!) but at the same time I can’t believe I am old enough to be living on my own in one of the biggest (and best) cities in the world. Where did the time go? When did dreams start becoming realities!?
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
