First Day!

It’s my first day!

I am excited like it’s my first day of 4th grade. I really have realized how exactly right this type of job will be for me. I keep recalling pieces of advise I have received from mentors and teachers throughout my time in NYC that have pointed me towards this job. I had a professor who told me I should work with a presenter and my favorite internship I had in graduate school was the summer that I produced a site-specific outdoor dance festival. It’s entrepreneurial, and I will be able to grow the organization. I love young artists and deeply love the concept of artist-run spaces. I am thrilled to work in an ecologically conscious space that represents what should be the future of arts-space construction.

Anyway, my hopes are high, but I am trying to be realistic. If it all goes south, several of my best friends live within walking distance of the space and we can have free pizza at Alligator Lounge. But it won’t…at least not all the time. I have to remember to keep myself balanced; for me this means working the hours for which I get paid, speaking up for myself if things feel wrong or out of control, taking time to exercise and eat well, and having a little fun.

Ahh! I have to go pack my lunch!
