Spring is sort of finally here and I am beyond anxious to be done with this dreadfully long semester. I have loved every opportunity that has arrived my way these past few months but I have to admit I have a few too many cookies on my plate.
I have acquired a lot of summer goals & adventures racing through my mind lately. I’m currently working my butt off attempting to land the “dream internship.” Or at the very least, the internship that leads to the “dream internship.” I’ve sent out my resume to about hundred different places and while some have gotten back with open arms, others have been giving me some serious cold shoulders. Luckily, I only have a few more applications to complete before I have to actually make a decision.
Once that dreadful task is completed (because I am not what you would call a decisive thinker) I can focus on summer vibes and finally switch over to my Happy-morning Spotify playlist. Like I said, I have a lot of schemes for myself this summer, starting with a city wide mural tour. I am determined to hit every Insta worthy wall in this damn city and as you can see, I’m already getting a head start.
Most people don’t realize it but Philly has one of the largest mural arts programs in the country. I am extremely lucky to live in a city that actually welcomes street art and expression. I love being surrounded by art rather than limiting it to dusty museums. Philly actually has a few mural walking tours that you can do for free, which I’ve been slowly working my way through. Next on my list is the new Bernie Sanders Mural that was just composed. It’s only temporary and with Bernie rumored to be headed to Philly, I’ve got to act fast.
This particular day, my best friend since animal-cracker-days came to visit me. We had extensive goals for the day including multiple photo shoot locations. Unfortunately, like every other time we get together, we ended up procrastinating, eating and ultimately slumming it. We were still able to get a few lookbook shots before the rain hit and then we proceeded to stuff our faces with delicious appetizers throughout Northern Liberties. This is the first time we have ever fully committed to “twinning” it and I gotta say it’s nauseating and cute at the same time.
Along with mural tours, I am in the works devising adventure days in various locations. I don’t want to give too much of my life away but Chicago, Boston, Graffiti Pier, Seth Meyers and California are definitely on my list.
In addition to some well needed travel, summer 2016 might just be the season for my first tattoo. Do I have a plan? Of course I do, but some secrets are just better off staying that way.
Until Next time,
