i've made it to dallas, safe and sound. we landed early this morning, around 9:30 AM, and had a chance to wander around northpark mall. my jaw dropped when i saw all the different stores in the mall (my friend can attest to this, i kept repeating "oh my god they have a ______ here! wow!"). i think my biggest potential weaknesses will be barneys, anthropologie, and henri bendel, which is right across from where i'll be working. i'm really excited about all of this (and a little bit nervous)! my room is really nice, equipped with a kitchen and high speed internet... couldn't ask for more. well, if only i could get my hands on some food/groceries... (watching the food network most of the afternoon has not been helpful, believe it or not.)
