how great, i’m back in new york! i started my internship yesterday and apple on sunday. both are great, i love working with opening ceremony. yesterday was the presentation for the new chole sevigny collection; models, make up artists and hair people took over the showroom, it was a hectic but fun first day.

before i started work emma, ehnee, ruth and i took a trip to coney island which was fun but probably the most trashy place i’ve been in a long time. it’s like a wisconsin trailer park on the beach, but i’m glad we went. that night we went out and had a good time exploring the lower east side. i don’t think we got to bed until around 4!

i posted some pictures to my flickr, be sure to check them out!

Thomas Pink was giving away free “custom” dress shirts today. Sara and I waited in line for about 3 hours before managing to get measured for a shirt. Unfortunately, “custom” in this sense just means someone measures your neck so you have the “right” size. Of course, as you all know, I’m a tall skinny guy so a normal size will not fit. Oh well, I have a free 15″-neck button down white poplin shirt being FedEx’ed to my apt for free. We’ll see how it fits, I’m sure it wont.

I haven’t updated in a while, mostly because I’ve been waiting for all sorts of web server stuff to switch over with my domain since I switched over to wordpress. Anyways, nothing too exciting has been happening. I’ve been working a ton and obviously going to classes.

Sara got us a good opportunity last weekend to work Ra’mon Lawrence’s fashion show. He’s a designer on the current season of Project Runway. We mostly just helped with backstage stuff like taping shoes, steaming, organizing, etc. I worked the door for a while but we both got to go in and watch the show when it started. Some of his pieces were pretty great, others not so much. It was a fun time and good experience, something I wouldn’t mind doing agian.

Work at Apple is great, as usual. I still love Apple products, I still love the Company, and working at the store here on 14th street is superb. I’ve got almost 40 hours in the past week and a half, so I’ve definitely been busy.

The only thing that I’m not sure about is school. Last year, Parsons seemed like the right choice. Now, I’m second guessing that decision. The classes I need to take before graduation here are basically things I’ve already learned from MCAD. I don’t want to waste time taking classes about concepts that I’m already very familiar with. I’m in a “you don’t know what you got til it’s gone” type of situation. I miss the small classes and community of MCAD, something I took for granted while there. The BBA program here at Parsons is basically just a larger, worse structured version of the BS program at MCAD. I’m also not enjoying my living situation, it works as a place to sleep, but I want more than that. I don’t like sharing a room with 3 people or a bathroom and kitchen (stove top and counters, no oven) with 5 people. I’ve been weighing the pro’s and con’s of moving back to Minneapolis, and have decided that I’m going to return to MCAD next semester (spring).

Talk about a hard decision.

It’s going to be hard to leave NYC behind though. I truly love the city. I’m also worried about what is going to happen with Apple, as I don’t know if it’s going to be possible to transfer back to a Minneapolis store. It’ll be nice to have Minneapolis friends around again, I miss them all.

Hopefully things will work out, they always do.

best. ever.
