The Week In Review

Been a couple days, but I'm workin on it. So yea, I put up new pics from the John Varvatos Fashion Show & Afterparty. Such a fun night...y'all can tell from the pictures, I'm sure. Don't be afraid to comment on them or rate them. I like some sort of feedback so I know you're all alive out there.

This Past Week: My Interview
I went on an interview for basically what I would call my ultimate dream job. Something like this, I believe only comes around once in a blue moon...and as far as I know, blue moons usually only happen once in one's lifetime, yea, it seemed soooo friggin' cool. It's a position as an assistant stylist for an agency that does magazine/editorial shoots, celebrity clients, etc...and the environment and everyone seemed so chill...I loved it. I'm used to the whole corporate vibe which I hate so much. It's so much more my style and I would loooooooove to get this job, but unfortunately the pay is so low. I totally am not surprised, though, cause that's just how it is when you start out in the fashion industry, but I mean, it's hard for me to take a step back...especially when my rent is costing me a fortune. NYC is by no means cheap. I would definitely be willing take a step back for this job just so I could transfer to this side of the industry, but I really just can't afford to. I would not be able to pay my rent each month and it just breaks my heart. It's like 20% less than what I'm getting paid now and that's signicant drop! Uhhh, I want to cry. But who knows, I don't even know if I got the job I guess there's no need to worry just yet. I'll just have to wait and see. *sigh*

Yesterday...St. Patty's Day
So for all of you that really know me out there...know that I absolutely DESPISE St. Patrick's Day! As much as I love the color green...I boycott it this day every year. In my eyes, it is the most sorry excuse for a holiday. Do you even know what the hell you are really celebrating??? And before you start getting all defensive, just know that I, too, am part Irish. But why does America seem to think that this day is purely an excuse to get drunk (yes, New Year's is like that too, but it seems more logical). Here, St. Patrick's Day is about wearing green & getting drunk on green beer...y'all know this is a religious holiday, right? I just hate how people misuse holidays to get obliterated...I mean, sure, a lil celebrating is great for any holiday, but the fact that like 90% of people only think of St Patricks Day as another reason to drink just annoys the crap out of me. Ok, so I'm starting to go on way too much about this, so i'll end it all here. Hope you all had fun and stayed safe, but just know that you didn't see me partaking in any of these events....I went to dance class instead, what a surprise...haha jk. Great class last night, though...way to bring it back to the street, Jamie. So happy you chose to do that is, by far, one of my all time favs. GANGSTA!

Today, I woke up early...I did my usual attempt to clean on a Saturday morning only to come out, once again, unsuccessful. I ended up going to visit my friend Yaffa, though, (only some have the privilege of knowing who she is)...came home, went to the market on my lil island and bought me some hella good fresh strawberries...yum. Now, I'm bout to get ready to go down to Brooklyn to start the festivities and celebrate Temis's birthday, Williamsburg style....if any of you are out down that way, hit up my cell or the 'Kick and we'll get down...peace n' love.
