Getting Busy

At one point when I lived in New York, this was my schedule:
8 AM - hop on 1 train to work, fight people for prime pole spot next to door
9 AM - get to internship and run around like a chicken with its head cut off, try really hard not to say anything too stupid in front of editors
5 PM - leave internship, hop back on train, arrive at school really tired
6 PM - arrive at class, stare at computer and sketchbook for 3 hours
9 PM - end class, go home, drown out any noise with iPod
10 PM - pick up a really unhealthy slice of pizza on my way home, put salad on top to make it seem healthier
12 PM - sleep and then do the whole thing all over again the next day

I think after that year, I vowed never to do that to myself again, because not only did I have a full-time internship but I also had class and class assignments. Internship+class+projects+little money=no life.

So I'm really bracing myself for the coming months because I've decided that I want to earn extra money by taking a second job. Granted, the second job is at one of my favorite stores in the whole wide world (Anthropologie!) and I don't have the homework, and I have a little more than a couch to call my own, but I'm still mentally preparing for being busy.

Photo editor by day, Anthropologie slave by night. I'll keep y'all posted on how crazy I get with my new schedule...and new wardrobe. ;)

Monnee! I didn't know you had a blog! But now I do, and I've linked to it from my own whether you like it or not.

I'm glad that you're doing well. At some point I would love to pick your brain about the New York photo world, as I may soon be attempting to penetrate it. So you may be getting an email full of question marks rather soon.

Good to see how you're life is coming along. Be well,
