I start work in the city tomorrow. My very first job working as a New Yorker. I'll be in the flatiron building on 23rd street, working for a publishing company. I am muy mucho excited!

I was thinking of one saturday seeing if I could get student tickets for Gypsy (I'm a graduate student now) but since I already spent months saving up for my ticket in October, I figured I would force myself to wait. (Gives me something to look forward to, after all.)

I may, instead, try to see Mamma Mia! (if I can get a student ticket or a rush ticket, otherwise it's way too expensive) before Louise Pitre leaves in October.

Regis: And look at all this hair. My God. That's a lot of hair. Look at this. How does hair get this way?
Bernadette: Um.. it sort of grew out of my head like this.

Good luck UCFGuardgirl! It sounds like you have a great opportunity! I did an internship in NYC this summer, and it was a wonderful I envy you! I highly recommend making good use of your student ID card though, and seeing as many shows as you can at the student rate! (It saved me a lot of money this summer!) If you go to, under the Broadway listings, they usually provide info about student ticket policies for each show. If you are working, it may be difficult to get student tickets for some shows (ex. Nine, Millie) because they usually sell out shortly after the box office opens in the morning. (I often couldn't make it to the box office until my lunch break). However, if you can't get student tickets, the TKTS booth in Times Square can save you a lot of money too! Also try They usually feature good discount offers. If you're like me, you'll want to see as many shows as you can afford. My philosophy is, if you're a student, never pay full price for theatre tix if you don't have to. Hope you have a good experience with your first NYC job!

Just a little piece of advice to all of you who want to move to New York now or someday. Do it while you are young! I mean go to college or grad school here or get your first job out of college in New York. Because it is soooo hard to move here later in your career when you have a lot less flexibility and a lot more bills. It makes the move financially difficult if not impossible. I had a chance to interview for a job in NYC when I graduated from college but I decided not to. 10 Years later when I was trying to find that job that would further my career and pay the bills finding it in New York was difficult. Had I taken the job fresh out of college, life would have been much simpler because I would have been better established here in my 30s.

Okay, life lesson over for today.
