Really weird time in my life right now. Becoming financially independent (against my own request) is proving to be much more difficult than one had previously predicted. Money disappears from my bank account faster than a speeding bullet, and without a steady income yet I am forced to live off of air and tap water. Although, I finally found a job and started last week. So all of that is about to slowly change. I have so many things that  I want to buy, so it is going to be hard to save, but I have no other choice because my bills have to come before my desires to redecorate my apartment and overhaul my wardrobe. So now my life is all work and all play. Because don’t get me wrong, I still go out a handful of nights a week, but I have either work or school every day of the week. To top it all off I turn 21 (finally) in less than a month. That is exciting and terryfing at the same time. That feels so old to me. When I was younger I thought about being 21 and viewed it as a such a far off monument in a galaxy far far away, but now it is here. I also never imagined living on my own, in New York City nonetheless, but it is amazing and I can’t reflect on my life for more than 10 seconds without being overcome with happiness at the memories and experiences that I have already had. My life is insane and the weirdest things happen to me and I haven’t even reached 21 yet. So overwhelmed with the thought that the next ten years are so unknown, but equally excited to see what in the world could possibly happen next.

I made a video with my little sister while I was home for Christmas break. I’m from Kansas, but I’ve lived in NYC for a few years now. I asked my followers on tumblr and twitter to submit misconceptions or questions about people who live in the Midwest. I’m super awkward in the video because I’m not used to being recorded, but whatever….it was fun making.

Just got back from the most amazing trip to Europe.

Spent the first week in London, and then spent a weekend in Paris.

Met so many amazing people and saw so many cool places.

I can’t wait to go back. I would love to live in London some day. It was spectacular.

Fashion Week in NYC has begun and already the shows, parties, and streets are flooded with the balm of style. I love this time of year because the city has a different mood or vibe about it. Everything in the city seems to be affected in some way.

It’s that time of the year day when I’m really in the mood to buy new shoes, but can never decide what I actually want. Shoes are really one of my favorite parts of an outfit, and I really do not have that many pairs. I think it might be time to get a new pair that I can wear all the time for fall and winter. I actually really want all three of these shoes below, but don’t have the funds. Check out more on Solestruck.com (or any site you know of) and send me links on Twitter to the coolest pairs you find! Thanks!! pt

I’m back….becoming really frustrated with how badly I am with keeping up with this blog. It’ll feel like two weeks has gone by and then I’ll check and it’s been 6 months. I think it’s a good sign that I have so much going and staying so busy that I don’t have time to post…but at the same time it might also mean that I don’t give this the time and attention that I really want to. That all being said, I’m making a promise to post here from now a lot more often. pt

Me Bobby and Jessica in Jersey

My best friend, Jessica came into the city for the weekend. She is from back home, in Kansas, and helped me move back out here a few months ago. I get really excited when people from home come out here, but she is really the only person who comes out here to ever visit me. Something about hanging out with Jessica just makes me feel really comfortable. She accepts me, and I accept her. We accept all of each other’s chaos, madness, and ridiculousness. I had so much fun with her this weekend. We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with all my friends, shopped in Soho, went to New Jersey hang out with Bobby, ate so much junk food, and went on middle-of-the-night adventures in the city. Everyone kept calling her “Kansas” and commenting on her accent, but I barely notice it because I’m so used to it.

So glad that she came out, and I hoped she had as much fun as I did. pt

Sara and Me on St. Patrick's Day

The St. Patrick's Day Parade on 5th Avenue NYC

The parade on 5th Avenue. We only stayed uptown at the parade for a little bit of time, because the snow was pouring down and we couldn’t see much of anything through the blizzard. 

Now you need to watch/listen to our favorite song from the trip! I think we listened to it on repeat at least 200 times.

I am finally back into the swing of things and used to living in NYC all over again. School seems like it just started up, but I’m already taking midterms this week. I just got a job, and I’m already going on interviews for a new one today after class. So much is starting and changing and progressing. I love the things that come along with change and growth. New friends, new experiences, and wild adventures. Got stopped on the street the other day by some streetsyle photographer. The picture will be posted below. Check out his work too (Muerdennubes). pt
