go, go, go

Hasn’t been a week since getting here and I’ve managed to already get sick. Alongside illness, I’ve also interviewed at MILKMADE (part of Milk Studios) and been called back by undisclosed marketing agency for a second interview (the first was in LA and on the phone). We will see if one of those work out! Both would be awesome in their own ways (agency has global offices with headquarters in Amsterdam and London and I would potentially work on either the Johnson&Johnson or Coca Cola accounts; MILK would have me cover Fashion Week!).  And if neither happen, then I suppose something better will come along. Must. Remain. Positive.

Definitely hasn’t sunk in that I actually live here now. I walked from Union Square to the Bowery tonight to get a sense of direction and it just didn’t feel like it was mine yet.  But it’ll happen, I’ll let you know when it does.

Somewhere out in Austin, Texas resides the one little lady that makes 3’s company come full circle. Deneice sent us the photo above while she was inside a luminarium.

Tony, Tony,
look around.
Something’s lost
and must be found.

We’ve spent 2 days in our temporary apartment in Greenpoint, Brooklyn ooing and aweing about how awesome the location is. And now, we are headed to the city.

Agenda includes: brunch at Balaboosta, riding the slide at the New Museum, sweets at Babycakes, seeing Ai Weiwei’s piece at Mary Boone, hitting up Economy Candy (we love candy way too much), and then later tonight: dinner with Jessy, seeing dance performance Blessed, and dranks with friends.

I said, I want to tell you something.
She said, you can tell me tomorrow.
I had never told her how much I loved her.
She was my sister.
We slept in the same bed.
There was never a right time to say it.
It was always unnecessary.
The books in my father’s shed were sighing.
The sheets were rising and falling around me with Anna’s breathing.
I thought about waking her.
But it was unnecessary.
There would be other nights.
And how can you say I love you to someone you love?
I rolled onto my side and fell asleep next to her.
Here is the point of everything I have been trying to tell you: it’s always necessary.

extremely loud and incredibly close


Always, Always

No matter where I was, my compass pointed west. I would always know what time it was in California.

My flight should have just taken off.  I have officially left Los Angeles.

Tomorrow, the dream finally becomes a reality: I move to New York.

Interestingly enough, my former boss called today and asked if I would be willing to stay in LA for another month and work as my replacement had just been fired. (no)

Most touching, though, may have been my father’s parting words: if you need to stay in NYC for 20 years because you are happy, then do so. You are ready – and have earned this right to live your life just as you always hoped.

It is this belief in a power larger than myself and other than myself, which allows me to venture into the unknown and even the unknowable. Maya Angelou
