So, I've been living in New York City for three weeks now. I found a clean, large room with a nice Dominican family and their 3 year old child in Washington Heights which is North of Harlem on the island of Manhattan. As long as you're on the island, you're technically considered to live in Manhattan... to think of it as an island is yet another story in it's entirety! It's humid like an island, that is for certain! I've been kept pretty busy and creative at Lori Goldstein's office the past three weeks, and I am excited to see what is coming next week at Lori's office for NYFW! My first year being involved with NYFW is a total dream so far... You better believe that I'll be hightailing it to the area the shows are being held just to see everyone! These shoes have been a perk about my internship,too! I moved to New York with only one pair of shoes... it was a little rough. My bagpack was FULL and so heavy and it was SO humid in the city- I couldn't hardly stand it with my Asthma. The air is heavier here- not only with smog, but with the people living in the city- who have run throughout it their entire lives and continue to do so every day JUST in order to survive and pay rent. Many are incredibly genuine and caring people who are willing to lend you whatever they can possibly help you with. It's not an easy thing to fathom upon college graduation- but thankfully I have another job stitching at a costume shop called iLuminate which is so fun! I am also looking in the West Village for a waitressing job. Maybe I'll be your waitress some day... should I wear the pink wig? Hehe.......
My interview with Teen Vogue proved to be very interesting, too.... The security is very tight in the Conde Nast building. I was happy to see the sign for myself... and not just via media :D We will see if I get the job- I am praying my hardest to make the most of myself in this city. Also, do you remember watching the episode of Sex and the City titled 'Hot Child in the City'? I've loved that show so intensely ever since high school (circa 2007). I love that episode, too... Wah! I love the random things that happen while living in NYC! XO!
