Is this real life?

I got my resume back from my brother today and holy shit, its filled with all these smart words and is formatted so awesome that I can't believe its my resume. I send him this plain blah boring resume with lots of blank spaces and get back this one full page that lists all my experience and education in a cool way. This makes me scared because there is only 2 weeks of school left then I have to become a real person and find a job. I recently did a phone interview for one of my classes and bombed that, I was so horrible and had no answers to the questions. I seriously need to practice this! Wahh I don't wanna be a grown up yet. You can find my resume here..

The AP group strives to dress every women in style for all occasion with three different brands. Adrianna Papell is sophisticated, alluring, and chic. The brand focuses on affordable luxury for women dressing everyone from the mother of the bride to the prom queen. The Aidan Mattox brand is sexy, modern, and glamorous. This brand has been worn on the   red carpet by many celebrities. The Hailey Logan brand is playful, youthful, and fashion savvy. The collection is and evening and social occasion and designed for dances, parties, and prom. You can find these collections in some of the finest department stores such as Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor Dillard's, and Macy's. They also have stores throughout the world.

Over the past two summers I have had an internship with Adrianna Papell and loved working with them. My mom works there so thats how I got the internship. Their office is right before Times Square on 7th Avenue. I loved working in New York City. I would commute from Jersey on the train which would take me an hour to get there so I would have to get up at the crack of dawn to leave. But all in all it was worth it since I got to learn a lot of things about the fashion industry to help me after I graduate. My first time being an intern there was very easy and laid back, I helped with the sales team and they buyers. Actually most of the time they forgot I was even there. There was no room in the office for me so I had to sit in the showroom with another intern that was working there at the same time as me. I would just sit on a laptop on Facebook for almost the entire day. It was really boring I barely did anything and I wasn't getting paid.

But the second time I did my internship I worked with the design team (btw I was getting paid this time :]) and that was more fun. Or should I say a lot more running around NYC. They literally had me non-stop running around the city, picking up samples, choosing buttons, picking up beads. It was never ending. But in the end it was all worth it. I got to see what it was like to work in the real fashion world in one of the biggest fashion cities.

Above & Beyond

This is Above & Beyond, my absolute favorite djs. Their names are Jono, Paavo, and Tony. They started and are from London, England. They have their own record label called Anjunbeats and Anjunadeep They host a radio show every Friday, it's called Trance Around the World. They play tracks from a lot of the known djs around the world, they also play tracks from new starting djs and their own tracks of course. I went to go see them live in D.C. this past summer with my ex boyfriend and I loved every moment of it. It was at a club called Fur, weird name right? You would think it would be a weird club but it was actually pretty fancy. The club opened up at 10 p.m. and the djs didn't go on until 1 a.m. so you can imagine waiting that long to see your favorite people of all time, it felt like foreverrr. Anyway the club ended up being the the ghetto of Washington D.C. I literally thought that we were going to get robbed. We stayed at the Capitol Skyline Hotel which was a really nice hotel, we had a corner room and one of the top floors which let us have a great view over D.C. I wish I took more pictures, I don't even know where the pictures I took are. Oh well. I plan to see them again very soon at Electric Zoo which I have yet to go to and I basically live in New York. I can't believe I never went! I would love to go EDC but I am a poor college student and unfortunately I have other priorities that come first, like finding a job. But I love Above & Beyond and I always will! I will always remember the time I saw them for the first time. It's actually funny because I used to hate them and this type of music but my ex boyfriend would play it so much that it grew on me and i started to love it and that's something we shared and  I think that we will always share even though we aren't together anymore. You should check them out they have a free podcast on iTunes, my favorite episode is 350! You can learn more about them at  :)

i think it's time to start looking for a job..

I am almost done with college which means I have to go out into the world and be a real person. This kind of scares me, I am so ready to be done with college and start making money but am I really ready go out there and find a job? My resume looks pretty good I have done two internships in the city but I never really did and real work, pretty much just bitch work. Plus I will be competing with all the other people that went to school in the city and have 10 times more internships on their resumes. But anyway I sent out my resume to my brother over a month ago and still haven't gotten it back. He looks at people's resumes and fixes them if they suck basically, so mine must suck pretty bad. I have never actually done an interview before and that scares me because I feel like I am going to go into one and screw up my chance at getting that job to begin with. I really need to start preparing myself for the real world. I just have to stay positive and go out there with confidence.

missing my long hair :'(

Okay, I don't know what made me wanna cut my hair but I thought it was a good idea. And now i regret my decision because now I can only straighten my hair and nothing else. I'm bored of it already and I want my long hair back! It took me so long to grow it that long and now its gone :'( I'm considering getting extensions but I have to look into it more. Wahhhhhhhhhhh.

i can't believe this has actually worked

So, I found this really cool free website and it is just like weight watchers. It's called my It tracks everything I eat and tells me how many calories I have per day. You can even add in exercise. I haven't really been exercising but somehow I have lost 5 pounds. This makes me very happy I feel really good about myself and hopefully this motivates me to work out some more so I can get in shape.
