I've been tagged!

Happy Monday Readers!

I'm currently sitting in the communications student lounge killing time until I have to take the train downtown to the first afternoon at my internship! I'm so excited/nervous but I'm confident that it's going to be a great experience. I just had my first Event Planning and Management class this morning with one of my favorite BU professors. I can already tell this is going to be my all-time favorite class, especially since it solely focuses on the field that I want to go into! The projects sounds challenging and a bit stressful but I know I'll be able to learn a ton and it will force me to be more creative.

So some of my lovely blogger friends have tagged me in the fun blog game last week but I didn't have a chance to answer because of the craziness of Recruitment- so here I am finally getting back in the swing of things! I'll try to follow the rules as best as I can- but I'm not going to tag any other bloggers because it seems like everyone has already participated!

Rules of the Game
1. You must post the rules.
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.

Fun Facts: 

1. I was born and raised in Queens, NY (one of the five boroughs of NYC) but am a converted Bostonian!
2. I have two half-sisters and one niece and one nephew who I absolutely adore! 
3. One of my sisters lives in German with her family! I miss them so much but it gives my family a great excuse to travel to Europe! 
4. The only pet I've ever had was a fish :( that's what you get for growing up in apartment buildings in a city! Once I get settled in my own apartment with my own job- one of the first things I plan on doing is get a puppy! I can't wait! 
5. I don't drive- as in I don't have a license! Laugh at me, judge me, I don't blame you- this is so embarrassing! I just have never had a reason to get a license since I could walk or take public transportation everywhere growing up and at college! 
6. I just finished my one year term as President of Alpha Epsilon Phi at BU! 
7. I would rather eat chips and dip than cake any day- I'm a religious snacker! 
8. I really can't dance to save my life but I love Zumba! One of my friends at school is an instructor and I love sneaking into her classes. 
9. I love Lilly Pulitzer! I worked at the NYC store this past summer and now my closet is full of great Lilly pieces. And my school bag is full of Lilly stationary and I live by their planners. 
10. I want to stay in Boston after I graduate! Crossing my fingers I get a job here! 
11. My parents are considering moving up to Massachusetts once I get settled here! They're over Queens and would love a change of scenery- plus my parents and I are really close (my mom is one of my best friends) so I would absolutely love having them close by!
