A Visit to URBN’s Distribution Center & Terrain

URBN Intern Visit to Distribution Center and Terrain

URBN Intern Visit to Distribution Center and Terrain

A few days ago I visited URBN’s East Coast distribution center with a few other interns.

Located in Gap, Pennsylvania, this center handles both store and direct-to-consumer merchandise. I learned a lot about how product is received, ticketed, handled, and shipped at URBN. I also got to see Terrain, URBN’s plant-nursery-slash-café.

An Interview with Natalie, Urban Outfitters UX/UI Design Intern

URBN UX/UI Design Intern Natalie

Behind every great app interface is a great designer.

Natalie is a UX/UI Design intern for Urban Outfitters. Her team creates the visual part of the apps that my team implements in code (I’ve actually done this a few times, so it was really cool to see the Urban app from an artist’s perspective). We talked about how much work actually goes into those advertising emails that appear in your inbox, Intern Interview Day, and how a creative project can make your intern application shine.

Content warning: This post discusses death and is probably one of the darkest things I’ve posted, but that’s why you have pretty pictures to balance it out, right?

I think a lot about being old.

When (if?) I’m so old that my body is stuck in life support mode while my mind wanders, will I remember my twenties? Will I regret them? If I could go back, would I change things? How so?

Five Years Out

Dress made by me | Franco Sarto heels

The first person I came out to was my sister.

I was a sophomore in high school, and it felt less like coming out and more like I was confirming something she had known all along. She was the one who’d playfully taunted me for being “as straight as a circle” since we were little kids. Her reaction, though, was one of openness and acceptance, and through that positive experience, I was able to tell my friends, closer family members, and eventually the general public that I was queer.

It’s now been five years since I’ve started to overcome my own internalized biphobia/began to talk about the gender dysphoria I experience/explain to others that no, pansexuality doesn’t imply attraction to everybody out there. In honor of Pride month, I thought I’d do a quick touch-base with you all on where I stand on certain Pride-related issues that are prevalent today. If you’re the type to get easily offended, feel free to smash that red X button and come back for another basic outfit post on Monday. The opinions expressed below are mine and mine alone.

I’ve been really into the countryside lately.

My friends make fun of me for admiring the “rustic Pennsylvania charm” (but can you really blame me?) Funny how I never noticed how pretty it was when I was growing up here.

My mom is really into lavender-scented things, so my sister and I took her to a lavender farm for her birthday last weekend. I never knew that lavender farms existed, but now that I’ve been to one, I can easily say that they’re my favorite type of farm.
