It is now about three weeks until I leave the great Toronto for the Big Apple to begin my dream internship! I am excited, anxious and busily going through all the things that I need to do before I arrive in the fashion capital of North America.
I am currently finalizing the necessary forms that I need for my SWAP visa, the necessary forms that I need for my internship course and the information that I need for my apartment. All I can say is, I am pooped! Beyond exhausted. However, no matter how stressed out or tired I may feel, I always have to remember that achieving a dream that at one point seemed so far fetched, was not always going to be smooth sailing. When achieving a fashion dream or any dream it is important to never give up and don't ever stop believin'!
At this point it seems that the only major things that I need to do is to start packing! I don't even know where to begin, I always over pack and want to bring everything. You know, just in case I might want to wear that black sequined dress? However, given the weight and luggage limitation that apply when traveling I must be selective when I begin to pack.
Here is a tentative list of what I will need,
-Jeggings/Leggings (oh how I love these!) 4 pairs
-Denim skinny jeans 5 pairs
So far that seems right, although I am sure there will be many more changes so stay tuned for updates! How do you go up about packing for long trips? If you have any tips I would love to hear them!
