First and foremost, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to the overwhelmingly sweet e-mails I have been receiving. Not saying this to be all "oohh I get tons of emails!" braggy braggy, but to say a sincere thank you to the few emails I woke up to this morning that just wanted to wish me Good Luck on my last Final Exam in Art History today! Seriously! That made my day and helped me face the big bad wolf with a little more courage. Granted, I wasn't exactly as prepared as I would have liked to have been, but I chalk that up to the fact that I was just burnt out. Either way, I am now a free woman! I wish I could lay back and take it all in but I have to work tonight haha Womp Womp Wompppp!
The past week has been one of the most stressful of my life. Over the past year and a half, I've really reinvented myself to not be one who stresses or worries. I take things as they come and I always hope for the best. Worry and stress solve no problems, right? Well, this stress wasn't backing down. Luckily I came out on the other end and just as I finished up my exam and left campus, I was greeted with an email in my inbox from Erin (Senior Designer) at BUST! She let me know that everything is in place and BUST will be in it's new home by my arrival. I even get a desk! Giddy! It was the kind of overwhelming excitement and a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. The kind of AWESOME where all you want to do is cry. So in between sobs you're trying to regain control of your cheeks because they're darn near your eyeballs from smiling so big! Yeah! I was just so relieved to be through with semester; So ready to be on my way to NYC. It was the kind of feeling where you just KNOW. I'd say something cheesy like it's when you just know you've found "the one"... that's how BUST feels to me. I instantly feel reenergized, inspired, and empowered. The stress of finals makes me question why I chose a degree in graphic design to begin with, and then BUST brings that feeling of accomplishment. I'm so incredibly blessed to be interning with such an amazing publication. I cannot thank my lucky stars enough! NYC, get ready. I'm coming for you!
I have so much to get done in the next few weeks. I don't even know where to start. I can't believe that come Monday, I have absolutely no agenda for a while! Amazing! I just might stay in my jammies all week! Haha well no, that would be overkill. But maybe a full 24 hours! Mike's birthday is on Wednesday so I must prepare for that. I have to ship out some packages from Kaelah's Closet (You can still buy stuff! CLICK HERE to get more info!) Mom's birthday and Mother's Day are right around the corner. And I really want to get some dresses sewn.
So much to do but I'm pumped. Good things are happening this Summer. Can't you just feel it?! This is my Summer. This is the Summer in which things will come to fruition! I'm sure of it!
Whatever your plans may be, whether you're still in finals or on the brink of starting/finishing them, just think about the magical Summer ahead of you! Even if you're not taking a vacation or doing anything glamourous, make the most of it! Make this Summer YOURS! It's a good good year!
I'm going to go dye my hair (so overdue!) and hang out with Baby G for a while before meeting Mike on his lunch break! I hope this is the most magical Friday you've ever had! Feel free to email me and say hello if you're a new reader! (or even if you're not!) KaelahBee (@) Gmail (dot) com!
PS; I've received a few emails about Internships and how to get them, etc etc etc. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ASK ME HERE or email me! I'm in no way an Internship Guru or anything, but sometimes it helps to ask someone who has been in your shoes :) (that's what I did!). Also, there was a girl at one point who wanted to intern at BUST... did you ever apply?!
PPS; I've been listening to Maria Taylor and Meiko all day! And here's one of my favorite songs/lines from Maria Taylor!
