Day 1: Introductions

Hello world,

My name is Allison, Allison Pinz. Welcome to Tren Talk- a daily briefing of my current thoughts on the commute home from school. Join me as I talk about things I love such as setting up for a career, networking and some things that just bother me- why is there no wifi on this train? Why does my life depend on said wifi?

Here’s a little more about me. My name is Allison and I’m 20 years old. (going on 21) I study at Parsons School of Design in New York City where I just finished my first day of senior year. And let me just say, wow that went fast. I started out as this little nerd who had no idea how to operate a subway map. Well 3 years in and I’m still a nerd who can proficiently figure it out. (yay)

The past 3 years I have been dorming on campus, but this year I decided to try out the commuting life. I’m someone that needs to be doing something every minute of the day. When I’m not doing schoolwork I’m running a club on campus, working or interning. If you look on my social feeds (@allison_pinz, shameless spread) you’ll notice I don’t post much. I want to change that this year. I have had a lot of friends and peers ask me about career related issues and I absolutely love to help out. I wanted to find a way to help others out as well- so each day I commute to school I will be putting out a new article. My commute might just be your gain.

Well, here goes nothing.
