You Are Here.

Well I haven’t updated this since around the same time last year when I had my internship with the Pittsburgh Pirates so I guess it’s fitting that I’m now updating it due to my internship with Getty Images/Sport in New York City. I officially arrived in NYC last night around 7:30pm! After a long process of visiting apartment’s in NYC, having an apartment, then essentially being told I didn’t, I finally found an nice apartment in Queens. For the next few days, until the 31st, I’ll be sleeping in the living room until one of the girls in the apartment moves out. The neighborhood is pretty nice and suburban and the roommates are great!

My sleeping arrangements in the living room until July 31st.

Today was my first attempt at conquering the subway system. I was doing well, trying to time my route from here to the Getty offices, until I took the right train going the wrong direction during my transfer at 42nd St (Times Square) on the 1 train. So tomorrow I’m going to have to give it another go while also making my first ever visit to B&H!

I digress…I’ve learned that there is a lot of time on the subway every day to sit and think and I think I’m going to really enjoy that time. Even though today was very uneventful and far from life changing, the internship as well as time with someone who recently came into my life, are things that I’m really looking forward to and I know each will have a pretty big impact on my future as a photojournalist and as a person. I’m going to continue to consistently post my thoughts and experiences on here, hopefully every day, with photos taken from my iPhone.
