Busy busy busy

Ahhh I feel awful that I haven't been posting very often since I've been here. Part of the reason is because I left my camera in Dennis' car and I hate making entries on here without something for you all to look at!

The last few days of work have been really long. Priscila and I have managed to get a lot done in the store as far as organization goes. We completely overhauled the stock room and I've begun to get as much paperwork as I can together. However it still feels like we haven't even made a dent. To make things even more hectic, we have inventory on Monday. Sooooooooo I'll have to work on Sunday (my day off) and I need to be here at 5:00am on Monday (my day off) to meet with the inventory crew. I'm already tired and it's not even halfway through the work week!!

It's been difficult separating my work life from normal life because they kind of coincide. I don't live in the best neighborhood so I try to get home by the time it gets dark so I don't have to walk back to my house and risk anything happening. Last night I decided that I REALLY needed to get out and just DO something besides go straight home, so I met up with my new friend Nina who I met at the Betsey Johnson Anniversary party. We ate Thai food at this awesome place off of 23rd and Park Avenue. Then we went to go see Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2(wow...worst movie ever. The first one wasn't half bad!) Afterward, Dennis called and freaked when he found out I was about to take the subway & taxi it back home so he and his friend Alex drove into Manhattan and picked her and I up. We brought Nina home and then they drove me back to Brooklyn. It felt SO good to get out of the house on my own for a bit, but I've realized that I really just need to stick it out until September 1st when I move into the new apartment and really hesitate from coming home late. After seeing how Dennis and Alex freaked out about where I'm living, it was (another) reality check that I'm not in Texas anymore. As safe as it feels here, it is a dangerous place for a 20-something year old. I just want to get out and see all there is to see in this city!!!!!! Atleast I'll be here for a while...I don't have to rush and see everything at once.

Okay...I PROMISE I'll try to get some pictures from my last few days in NY on here :)I miss all of you very much.

(Not the most recent picture of our store window, but I love these roses!)

The two dresses on display in the picture are so pretty. I am absolutely in love with the one on the right...the white background with the blue roses. Man, if I could fit in one and afford a Betsey Johnson dress, I would so buy that one!
