Today was an eventful one.  Besides the fact that the beautiful piece of machinery pictured above was parked outside my apartment all day, I also woke up with a fever and an extremely sore throat. Therefore,  I called my mommy (yep. thats right. my mommy.) and she told me to go to the doctor.  Since most mothers are dramatic, her exact words went more like, “Joey, go to the doctor! You could have strep throat and die.” As a self-proclaimed hypochondriac, that’s all I needed to hear.

As it turns out.  I did/do have strep throat…and it sucks.  However, I should be back to normal by Thursday. We shall see.  After eventually waking myself from my deathbed,  I received an email from Katelyn @ Betsey Johnson (isn’t it crazy that she spells her name the same as mi hermana?) telling me…I GOT THE JOB! I will be the Fall PR Intern at the NY showroom for Betsey.  I get to work the show at fashion week and learn the PR end of the fashion industry.  I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am.  I start next Tuesday…more to come on this endeavor!

I am also applying for a job at The Grey Dog coffee shop.  It’s right across the street from my apartment and I eat there often.  I’m hoping to land this simply to make a few extra $$ while working at my internship.  Not to mention, this job seems to be a temporary opportunity for many of the artsy employees currently working there.  A halfway house of sorts…for struggling professionals.  If so, I’m game.
Finally, Anna Gatlin moved to the city today! We purchased her a nice AC unit @ Best Buy and her furniture arrives tomorrow! It’ll be nice to have another lady friend in the city…they’re hard to come by!
