Life after school does exist. It looks something like this:
Part 1: I returned to New York with my friend Amy.
We stopped at Millennium Park in Chicago on the way to the airport. Unfortunately, I left my wallet there and had an interesting panic trying to board a flight without ID or credit card. Fortunately, they accepted a picture of my passport, my Kohl’s card, and an intimate pat-down as proof of my security. (On the plus side, my wallet has been located (minus $50) and is currently in the possession of my parents!) But. These photos were taken before that fateful moment.
In my defense- it was a warm day. – Although this photo could be seen as a foreshadowing event.
Upon arriving in New York we- went to a Yankee’s game. Because live sports are appropriately entertaining.
and Shake Shack. Because we like it.
and Little Italy. (Because it’s even better then Shake Shack!)
and Chinatown… and more.
Part 2: Amy flew home and I stayed to face my next big hurdle- unemployment.
Needless to say, I am a little tired of wearing my interview blazer in this summer heat. (I interviewed 3/5 of the days this past week. And.. in my defense.. the public education system here has a lot of hurdles to get through. — I promise… it’s not because no one wants to hire me… (I hope.))
However, this picture is from my very first interview….
Funny story… I sent this picture to my mother titled, “here goes nothing.” I got a text back that said, “who is this?” Well… Obviously, the person in the picture! (Yes, I sent the picture to a stranger (a not so brilliant stranger) … not my mother- whoops).
So yes. Lots of interviews. Which is because 1. I’m unemployed. So that’s a thing. But also because 2. I’m kind of in a rush because I leave for Asia in a week (eek! 🙂 ). But my mom says I should enjoy the process rather than stressing. So, I guess I’m trying to be the first to do that. 🙂
And, finally, can you guess where the following photo was taken? I promise.. it’s NOT where you’d think.
(It’s the park reservoir by my apartment! Surprise. 🙂 )
And finally… it seemed appropriate.
