So, I have officially crossed the halfway point of my internship. With just three (!!!) weeks left of my internship, I thought I would take the opportunity to reflect on some things that I have learned here at Town&Country and during my time in New York.
1.) Be young, be dope, be proud: Own your youngness.
2.) Remember future employers (or your mom..) can see everything you do on social media. (Only put out content that positively reflects on you and your experiences.)
3.) Be agreeable/ accept whatever task comes your way.
4.) ALWAYS read over an email before you send it. 🙂
5.) Pack lunch (save $$).
6.) Everyone is broke in NYC (unless they’re not…).
7.) Do one thing each day that makes you happy.
8.) Bring a book on the subway… oh, and carry an umbrella.
9.) Download the BuzzFeed news app. Do it.
10.) Go out after work!!
11.) Ask for help… if you don’t understand something even the slightest bit, just ask.
12.) Always say please and thank you.
13.) Don’t let bad housing dictate your mood (hi AJ, Megan and Sydney!!)
14.) Carry a notebook and pen with you always, you never know when inspiration might strike (or who you might meet at the grocery store).
15.) Networking isn’t just for LinkedIn.
16.) Say yes.
17.) Try new things (sweet pea hummus, Trump bootcamp, comedy shows).
18.) You’re going to have realllly good days and realllly bad days. On those bad days treat yourself to some ice-cream.. and on those good days do the same 😉
19.) Find a mentor.
20.) Lean in, be present and enjoy every minute of everything.
