As some of you may already know, I am headed to Philadelphia soon for my summer internship for Free People at home office. I will be shadowing the styling team and helping put together beautiful looks that will be shoppable online.
What no one knows is that I am now leaving a month earlier than expected to start my internship early. Last week I received an email from one of the stylists asking me if I would be able to join them May 1st instead of June 1st; I of course said yes.
This freaked me out though considering I had a month to find a place to live and buy a plane ticket and pack for a 3.5 month adventure, but just like always, it fell into place. Alas, I have found a place to live for the summer and that is with five other interns in a beautiful old Victorian house not too far from head quarters. It is a five bedroom house (yes—that means two girls are sharing a room—no—I am not one of those girls), with two bathrooms, and a back yard. While I have my reservations living with so many people, I am seeing it as an adventure and could not be more thrilled to meet these girls. I am hoping that these young ladies will turn into some life-long friends.
I could not be more excited for my summer away from Arizona and am a little nervous being so far from home, but as a bird must learn to fly, I must leave the nest.
