This week was crazy busy but also super fun going from job to interview to job. I am loving the companies I am working with right now even though it is only for a brief period… fingers crossed it will turn into a longer time period. It is really cool to see the different aspects in each company and their daily functions. Even though I haven’t secured my dream design job quite yet, I still feel like I am enlightened each day by this fun and complicated industry… some things I definitely love and others I can do without. Life is such a learning process in everything you do and I am thoroughly loving this period of my life. If my three guys were here with me it would make it that much better.
The insta-pics below are from previous weeks when I wasn’t working such long hours but they were great fun indeed. Yes, that is Zach Galifianakis, and yes, I decided to put my celebrity polite rules aside (you know, the rule that when you see a celebrity you act like they are just like everyone else and pretend they are not there when gazing at them through the corner of your eye while quietly whispering to others around that that is indeed a celebrity in your presence but you never under any circumstance let that celebrity know that you know who he/she is) and instead chased him down the sidewalk asking for a photo to prove to my friends that indeed I saw him. I swear I normally wouldn’t do this, which was proven the next day when we saw Jason Sudeikis at my favorite food market and only secretly snapped photos of him without his knowledge.
That week started out with a a nice craft evening planned to take place at the Etsy headquarters. We got our hands dirty making terrariums and seed bombs and I also had an unsuccessful interview for Martha Stewart TV due to the fact that I could not pronounce terrarium after several tries ha. But I was able to redeem myself at the Madewell Denim Roadtrip and Braid Bar when they interviewed Ann and I on our braided dos and their airstream campaign, which was adorable.
The Dry Bar experience was an interesting experience. I went back to my roots and received the Southern Blowout while watching the stylist learn new braided up-do techniques.
We only viewed one film at the Tribeca Film Festival called First Winter which was beautiful to watch as far as coloring and nature but some of the material was questionable. Also questionable was a psychedelic rock band called Prince Rama complete with neon aztec printed tights (these are a cuter version), 80s hair, glittered faces and a lengthy choreographed dance. I have definitely seen some crazy and interesting things in this city. Can’t wait to see what crazy things are in store for this week.
Dreaming of a fun peaceful work day,
