there will be nothing new here, so get at us up there.
Lets face it, even if you’re only a freshman, if you don’t have an internship already you are behind in NYU world. If you don’t have an internship for this summer, you are behind in every decent university’s world and might as well just drop out and live on the streets. Ok, that’s a tad dramatic, but we’re NYU…its what we do best. Now the only reason we are helping you with this life changing task is obviously because we already have jobs and internships lined up until we finish grad school. So take notes young grasshoppers…
We’re sure you have all had some sort of encounter where you see a scruffy man in a million layers of clothing walk in somewhere and you instantly think, “oh my god why is that hobo walking into my building??” It is then followed by a wave of relief, “Oh wait, it’s just a hipster.” It can be very challenging to distinguish hobos from hipsters seeing as they have very similar physical appearances. Both are frequently spotted wearing army jackets layered over zip up hoodies. They usually sport a beard (which can vary in length) and they are typically chain-smoking cigarettes. In the winter months, aka now, they also both wear beanies and gloves with missing fingers. The trickiest one though is when they play their guitar in the park. Are they trying to make a living or are they just becoming one with the music and pondering the ideas of existentialism?? With so many similarities you must be wondering, “HOW WILL I EVER KNOW THE DIFFERENCE?!!”
A majority of your professors are not from America
At least 5 of your friends model professionally
You think anything above 14th st is uptown
New York Fashion Week basically epitomizes why we love living in this amazing city. From classics like Marc Jacobs and Chanel to lesser-known designers like Gretchen Jones and Calla, there wasn’t a single disappointment.
As we’re sure you all have heard, Whitney Houston passed away this weekend (RIP, although we will admit we’re not exactly surprised, even if everyone else seems to be). Even if you didn’t get the NY Times notification or log into fb Saturday night you undoubtedly heard people talking about it on the street and around town – we found out from our waitress at Whitman’s (best burgers ever). The news says it is from unknown causes, but come on, we all know what it means when a rehab frequenter does of “unknown causes.” Anyways, if you’re “mourning” like the rest of America seems to be (as if Whitney Houston was everyone’s favorite artist and was listened to on the daily, whatever people she’s great but let’s be real) read on.
With one of the most dreaded American holidays quickly approaching, we figured you might need some advice. Assuming that you are in the same boat as the majority of women in NYC, you are going to be spending this upcoming Tuesday solo. Here’s the do’s and don’t’s for February 14th.
We love football just as much as the next NYU girl, aka couldn’t care less, but this game has just become one of our new favorite holidays. Being in New York for this glorious day may have been the only reason we watched in the first place, but it was also why it was such an amazing night. In case you decided to skip out watching here’s what you missed:
We’re not sure if its because were still getting used to being back at school or this strange winter weather, but some very unusual things have come across our mind lately walking around campus. The chances of these things happening are one in a million, but we thought it might be more comforting if you knew you weren’t the only ones thinking them.
