Two-Sided Coin

Posted on September 10th, 2006

Well I didn’t end up going to the Museum of Modern Art, but I more than made up for it by going to a Broadway show and the Hard Rock Cafe instead!!!

I, along with two other coops here, scored AMAZING tickets to RENT!!! I WAS IN THE FRONT ROW AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! The show itself was, not surprisingly, ridiculously good and I am very exciting about seeing other shows in the near future! (I need to make amends for not seeing live theatre for a few years.)

We actually met a couple of tourists from Minnesota outside the theatre who also had orchestra tickets. And, because we were so excited and giddy in the moment, we invited them to join us for lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe! Now I’m surprised that I was as open and talkative and social as I was, but maybe it was just because I was having a most fantastically excellent day. Jealous? You should be. ๐Ÿ™‚

While I am taking advantage of seeing really exciting things and enjoying work and all that, being in New York isn’t all perfect.

For one, my commitment to help out with the Embassy’s website has been extremely difficult to manage; getting things organized and done remotely is pretty rough and there are (many, many) times when I have been really frustrated at the pace at which things are moving. It is clear to me that they do not operate in nearly the same way as I do, and I try to be understanding, but it’s hard. Real hard. In fact, I’m starting to second-guess how involved I am going to be come January…

And then there is the fact that most of my friends aren’t here. New York would be unbelievably cool if some of my good friends were here to experience it with me. But I’ve been flying (nearly) solo and, despite my efforts to find people with whom to spend time, it gets a little lonely. I miss you guys.

    I am also INCREDIBLY jealous that you went to see Rent… I saw it when I was in grade 9 or something like that but I’m dying to see it again!

    Wow – front row tickets!
    When I saw Rent I had almost the worst seats ever and I still really enjoyed it…so front row tickets? Wow!
    I’m glad you’re having such an awesome time ๐Ÿ™‚
