Last day of finals. Not to mention last minute laundry, packing, and 18 library materials to return. Tomorrow I leave for New York City. This summer, I will be the Development Intern with The Metropolitan Opera Guild.
As a double major in flute performance and accounting, I am very excited to spend the summer at Lincoln Center learning as much as possible about funding for non-profit organizations, which seems like a perfect marriage of my degrees.
Fun fact: I know nothing about mass transit. However, I did download the NYC Subway app today. Finding my way around…that’s this weekend’s project…
It should be a rewarding summer and an exciting new adventure for me as I have spent exactly four days of my life in New York City on a chaperoned high school music trip. (Doesn’t count.) And considering that I am from the village of Spring Green, Wisconsin (Population: 1,444), this should be an interesting change of pace. As Van Morrison sings, ”It ain’t large enough to be a town.”
I hope you will all enjoy reading about my adventures that will start in just a couple of days! Have a great summer, everyone!
