Something that I learned just in the past week is that hard work really does pay off! My week was packed with one good piece of news after another — I got very positive news regarding a bunch of summer internships I’m interested in, I connected with many wonderful Union alumni and had some awesome conversations (Union alumni are the BEST — for real!), I got into a class that had previously been full for next term, and I found out that my theme house will be reinstated next year (after some serious adversity)!! The best part about all of the positive news was that none of it was the result of mere “good luck” — I worked my little booty off for every single thing! Fall 2012 has been my most rewarding term yet at Union!
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!
