Name: La Nina
  New Jersey

I'm a Jersey girl without the big hair or the accent (well, most of the time anyway), but with all of the bad driving and the penchant for weekly manicures.
Oh, and I'm an interior design student. That's how all of the weird terminology comes into play.

Natural Finish
Natural Finish: A transparent finish that doesn’t seriously alter the original grain or color of the natural wood. Natural finishes are usually applied with oils, varnishes, and or similar materials. (From the glossary)

It's been four months since I posted here. I've completed two semesters of my interior design master's degree, and they've been very tough, busy, overwhelming, and highly enjoyable months.

I have a lot to look forward to: a trip to Rancho La Puerta with my mom in January, an internship with a residential interior designer in the upcoming semester, and five weeks in Florence, Italy as part of the school's summer program.

What I cherish most of all is my life right now. I'm here in the apartment I designed, with a boyfriend I'm nuts about, and tonight we're just going to stay in.

My favorite room...

Sometimes I'm quietly surprised that I don't need a huge party to bring in the New Year. Tonight it's just us, a steak dinner, champagne, and a mini-marathon of "24". And the God's honest truth is, I couldn't be happier or more excited.

You only have a few hours left, folks. Study up.

My biggest wish right now is that all who celebrate this night do so in a way that feels natural and true to themselves. Happy New Year, everyone.
