NYC First Thoughts

It may be news to some of you but most of the people who I'm close with know that I made my move to New York (yes, the city) about two weeks ago. I am living in Flatbush, Brooklyn, a place that I had never visited prior to my move. I am still learning the area but have found it very welcoming. I spent the first week just acquainting myself with all of the new things (subway travel, walking quickly, the bank thinking my card was hacked, etc.) and getting together with all of my long lost friends. On New Years, I attended my first New York concert which was a fusion jazz band called Snarky Puppy. New Years 2017 was definitely one of the best nights of my life with some of the best people!

Last Monday, I began my internship with Jim Carnahan Casting at Roundabout Theatre Company with my classmate David. So far it has been an extremely eyeopening and exciting experience. So far my skills have been put to the test with many taxing jobs such as picking up coffee, printing things, stapling and most recently sorting sweetener packets. Although my tasks so far aren't what most people see as the glamorous NYC lifestyle, my time in the office has been incredibly informative with constant talk of projects that have past and are upcoming. I can't wait to see what comes in the next couple months!

That's really all for now but keep checking back for new and exciting #NYCupdates!
