Summer is always my favorite time of year. I finally feel like I have some free time to do the things I love. I can finally put away those heavy jackets and pull out my favorite sun dresses. I can eat as many popsicles as I wish while I hang out on the couch and rewatch my favorite Netflix series and no one can do anything to stop me.
Okay and do a few productive things....like complete an internship and get ahead on Panhellenic presidential duties before I blink and the school year is rapidly here.
This summer, I decided to stay on campus for the MayX period and take a fun art class. I'm so glad I decided to stay on campus for an extra 3 weeks and had the chance to enjoy campus while the weather is nice! I always get frustrated during finals season when I'm stuck inside studying because I feel like I never have the chance to enjoy Furman's beautiful campus and the great area due to all the studying!
Our first mural is still in the works but it's looking great so far!
My class is an art class and it's focused on public art in the Greenville community. We are working on two (very different) murals with local artists. It's so great to get up every morning and spend 3 hours painting. I've learned so much about the process of public art and the importance behind it! My art class ends next week, and I will quickly pack up my room/apartment, head home for my younger brother's high school graduation (!!!) and then fly up to New York City that same weekend where I will be completing my internship this summer!
I will be working at a fashion PR company and couldn't be more excited for my city adventure! Terrifying that this is my last real "summer". It will definitely be an adventure and I'm excited to see what 2 months in the city holds!
Let me know if you have any recommendations or your favorite things to do in the city!
