i am feeling a bit better. i was spinning off center from too much travel and too much work for a little while there.
i took a self imposed hibernation for most of today, and feel much better for it.
thoughts from the weekend: i took a $150 cab ride to white plains for a shoot that someone needed me for IMMEDIATELY! what the hell. they paid for it… bizarre night. but i got a free room in the ritz carlton, and, they gave me money for a cab ride back, and i took the $7 metro-north into grand central, so, i made out with a bit extra;)
i will take a picture of the receipt later and post it. i had to keep it. it was such a crazy experience.
new york times, cnn, everyone has to write about the ‘opposition leader’s facebook page was updated with the following information’, and ‘twitter is ruling the agenda on what happens for the moment’. A-mazing. who would have thought we would see this day? these types of things were NEVER brought up in our media classes, were they? this is what i wanted to discuss all along: media and how it shapes power, politics, opinions, actions. instead we talked about media buying, when to purchase commercial slots for the most bang for your buck in a given demographic range. ugh. and my teachers in my politics courses were always so confused when they found out i was an advertising major. i seemed passionate about politics. i was! but advertising. yes! they all tie in! but for some reason my teachers thought i was bat shit crazy. maybe in college i was a bit more batshit crazy, but, i swear, i had a grand plan.
and currently that grand plan is;;;; getting the most out of my sunday night that i can. doing some work from home in a bit so i dont have to go to office til mid-day tomorrow. going to a photoshoot w a friend in a little bit. here are some pg-ish(?) pics to illustrate what my life is like right now, and what it may be like more often if i am done with dayjobbing soonish… wishes on stars and crossing fingers. love to you all, of course of course.
