spread love, it's the brooklyn way

Photobucket
i was so excited to step out into truly summery weather yesterday that i actually had to refrain from skipping down the street. josie and i hit the american apparel flea market, though once i arrived, i realized that i already own so much aa that there was nothing i actually needed, even at insane discounts. also: almost got killed a couple of times getting too close to the bike lane on the brooklyn bridge (tourists walk far too slow),got my first mileage out of the new tila march bag, got happily caught in something of a sunshower (my favorite thing, despite my general disdain for most kinds of precipitation), almost saw transformers 2, finally opted for lemon over red velvet at sugar sweet sunshine, and got the most out of my last $25 dollar weekly unlimited metro card before the fare hike, ugh.

oh, and to marisa, who asked me about experience needed for internships: i stay busy during all of my summers, but i often find myself interviewing in situations where i have little position-specific experience. i tend to make a speaking point out of my inexperience, though, something like: "at my age, i have a ton of interest and energy that i'd love to dedicate to (insert industry), but limited experience, which is why i'd love the opportunity to direct that enthusiasm towards this position." good luck!

The fare hike is ridiculous. As if we're not broke enough.

I'm someone who gets serious bike rage when people don't move fast enough out of the bike lane *shamefaced*...but, I have a bell which a ring a lot in advance, so I feel kind of justified!
PS. Late congrats on the internship, I bet you come across some great designers and people at Refinery29!

I walked the BK bridge a few weeks ago and it's true - tourists are too slow. I was so paranoid about getting hit by a bike - it was ridiculous.
