I’ve just finished up my last week at the production company that I was interning at. Starting Sunday I will be working on a lesbian vampire film that was filmed last February and is doing a week of reshoots in order to finish up the film. I’m really excited about it because it’s a makeup effects job. It’s an unpaid job, but it is something that I really WANT to be doing. I have a good amount of work to do and it will help expand my resume and portfolio. I have to admit, I am slightly nervous about, but definitely confident at the same time. It should be fun, the people that I have met are really cool and laid back so I’m not worried about working with any uptight assholes. I’m sure they will be really long and exhausting days but it will definitely be worth it.
I also have my 10K Nike Human Race next Saturday! I’m really excited about it, but at the same time I’m not sure how well I am going to do. Like I said, this week will be exhausting and to have to wake up on Saturday morning and be at Prospect park for 8 am will be a feat in itself. Following my race, Derek and I are headed to Connecticut for a Halloween Party that I am slightly unprepared for. I haven’t been keeping up with my running as much as I should be. I’m not worried about running the 6 miles, but it’s definitely not going to be anything amazing. My running has been cut back by a lot! I’m a little bummed about it, but I’m trying not to be too hard on myself because I did just move to New York and completely changed my life around here. I’m so glad to have a running buddy though! Speaking of which, Matt has really been kicking my butt with speed, I can barely keep up with him now. It’s starting to get very cold, I need to get a job that pays so I can join a gym and therefore keep up with my running a bit more easily at the gym.
One amazing thing that did come out of my internship was being able to attend my first red carpet movie premiere. The company I was interning for produced the film ‘Motherhood’ and it had it’s New York premiere this past Wednesday night. I worked at the door with Matt checking people in and handing out tickets. It was pretty stressful and things could’ve gone more smoothly, but it was all okay in the end. We didn’t stay for the movie, instead we met up with Derek and a few friends and drank some wine. Matt and I headed back early so we could be there to let people in at the after party. Now that I think about it, I’m really sad that I didn’t get any pictures of Derek and I because we looked good! Although Derek was lucky enough to get his photo taken by a press photographer that was there. Check it out, he is totally a celebrity!
But yeah it was a pretty amazing party. I saw Uma Thurman and Anthony Edwards. They are probably the first real celebrities I’ve ever seen. It was an open bar and yep I got way too drunk and of course that is how I got the gash on my face. I can never seem to make it through a night safely when I drink. I was apparently squatting down in front of our apartment and I lost my balance and fell over and scraped my face and my knee on the ground. It was an extremely fun and eventful night, but I really hate getting that drunk. I need to realize that my tolerance is nothing and I shouldn’t drink more than like 4 beers. Ever.
