Wisdom from my fist week of work in NYC: work is… well, a lot of work! I thought adjusting to a working schedule versus my lovely college schedule of two years would simply be like going back to a grade school mentality, but I quickly discovered why my parents seem so completely drained when they came home from work each day; between getting up super early to arrive at the office at a reasonable time, pushing myself to get everything done while I’m there, and taking care of my own place, by the time I get home in the evening, even watching TV takes too much effort! I need to do laundry, I need to relax this weekend, and I need to find some more work-life balance ASAP!
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!
