I’m starting to freak out. It’s my last week in New York and Bananafish in New York will no longer be in this big city, but will be headed for San Francisco after a short recovery period in North Carolina.
I’m getting excited about the prospect of leaving the world of school and homework and assignments that never seem to end. It feels like time for a change again, and I’m hoping that is one in the field of publishing.
I know for a fact I want to be in this field, I’m just not really sure what it is within publishing that I’m capable of doing. Ideally, I would be working for a book publishing company—but starting out—I honestly will take anything. Which is why I’ve got an interview with Wired Magazine on Wednesday over the phone. SCARY.
I have a backlog of photos to post soon. Devin and I ventured to Coney Island this weekend while he visited, and it was pretty gross. I ate a funnel cake, saw a lot of gross people, and got bit by bugs. It was a fun weekend, I’m just not prepared for anything happening this week, like 1) finishing up our book imprints, 2) the stressful interview Wednesday morning, or 3) the career fair with all the major book publishing companies in New York. YIKES.
There’s a lot in the works. I hope I can deal with it all.
Pictures to come soon.
