Listen to this song as you read, it's called To Build a Home by Cinematic Orchestra
I stayed with one of my best friends Dan and arrived Thursday night to a chilled 6 pack of pumpkin beer that Dan and I shared as we caught up.
Friday I had an interview at the offices of Club Monaco, a clothing company. A close friend from Berklee works there now in the PR department and convinced me to send them my resume. Though it’s not music, it happens to be another hobby I am passionate about, fashion. Realistically I don’t see myself living in New York and I don’t see myself working in the fashion industry in the long-run, but it was a good experience to get out there and practice my interview skills. I wouldn’t mind starting out in the fashion world for a year or so before going back to music, fashion and music do kind of go hand in hand anyway.
After my interview I walked walked and walked some more in New York. The weather was so B-E-A-U-TIFUL that I forgot it was almost October. I walked to Bryant Park and had lunch outside at one of their many outside tables, then laid in the grass for a while to soak up some sun.
After a nice rest I walked over to the Empire State building to go up and see New York from a different perspective. I’ve never seen New York from that high up, I’ve seen Chicago so I was familiar with the whole Skydeck Protocol. Dan wasn’t with me so I took a picture with one of the employees! Why not?
Can you see Central Park?
Later on Dan and I biked to this nice bar/restaurant place for dinner, then it poured on us while riding back to his apartment but it was all in good fun. After drying off and relaxing for a bit we went to one of Dan’s friends apartments for a party. That basically concluded our night. Saturday we slept in then sat on the couch for the rest of the afternoon eating pizza and watching Law and Order until I had to leave for my bus back to Boston.
So I’m back, doing laundry, homework and all that good stuff. It was nice to get away for a couple days though.
Oh, I almost forgot, this past week Laura and I went out for ice cream and decided it was time to take a run through the fountain located at the Christian Science Center!
Hope everyone’s enjoying the fall weather!
