These girls were adorable! As I was listening to them, I remembered I had seen one of them before. The girl in the pink is in a band called Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. They toured with Kate Nash and it was one of the best concerts I have seen. Was bizarre that I had remembered her and interesting to see her doing what she loves off the “road” on the sidewalk.
If I am in NYC this summer there was one thing that I had to do… see Sex and the City 2. I have to say that I don’t even remember the first Sex and the City but that didn’t matter. I laid down $13!!!!! That is ridiculous. All the showings were sold out except the 11:30 p.m. showing on May 28th. They told us to get here about an 1 ½ early, and that is what we did. We waited in this everlasting line and listened to all the girls fantasize about being one of the four women. Pretty comical. When it was time to enter the theater everyone started running in the theater like there was money involved. Overall I thought the movie was funny and entertaining. The clothes in itself were very fun to observe.

The Michael Alan Group has is Wicked for one of there clients, and one of the events the street team will be doing is handing out these water bottles along with other promotional material. I have to say that Val (the other intern) and myself prepared theses lovely water bottles for distribution. GO TEAM!
There comes a time in everyone’s life that the word “home” can be very confusing. I arrived at NYU dorms on May 23, 2010. This is going to be my “home” for the next three months. One suitcase and a carry on. How can one survive with the bare minimal in New York City? The city of the most fashionable people? One cannot compete. I arrived to an enormous room on the twelfth floor with a common room with three beds and another bedroom with two beds. A bit confused, I chose my bed close to the window overlooking the fire escapes and rooftop gardens. Hearing sirens and car horns was a reassurance that “I was not in Kansas city anymore!” Anxious, excited, nervous, beautiful, exhausted, confused, stressed, lonely, happy…did I mention nervous. Feeling a bit directionless I began to take one step at a time. This is what I have been craving, now is the time to soak it up.
“Be yourself, and don’t let the city change you…YOU change the city!”
