(somewhat) controlled chaos. that is how i would describe my life these days.
to begin with, last weekend, my family (aka the Choo clan) finally came to visit me in the Big City! in a span of about 3 days, we crammed together so many sites and of course, delicious food! here are some photos of our weekend:
secondly, most of my chaos can be boiled down to two words. Alexander. McQueen. if the Met was giving out free crack, i think we would have had less people than we did this past week. a 2 hr. long wait outside just to get into the museum, 3-4 hr. long lines to see the McQueen exhibition causing us to reach full capacity and close the museum for 20 min on friday, i understand why people have been... perturbed. but to burst into hysterical tears and tell me i 'need to get my sh*t together!' uncalled for LADY. needless to say, unless you are planning on getting me a present, don't mention the words ALEXANDER or MCQUEEN in the same sentence for a while :)
for some good news, about two weeks ago, my supervisor asked me if i wanted to stay on at the Met after the internship! my answer: HECK YES! i feel so lucky to be a part of such a world-class institution with so many incredibly passionate people. and now that i've found a place to live after a week of apartment hunting, i'm officially going on cruise control...
