Hi everyone! It’s been a crazy, hectic couple of days, so I’ll recap a bit for you! (Haha so I couldn’t resist the title… you’ll understand why when you keep reading!)
After our big Brooklyn shoot, I spent most of the following day unpacking and organizing boxes and the props. However, after two weeks, I finally got my I.D. badge and computer login! Yay I’m an official Hearst intern now!! 🙂 The next day, Friday, was a research day; finishing up a big project that was due.
Saturday was a pretty relaxing day until about 6:30, when my friend and I went to see Gigi on Broadway with Vanessa Hudgens and Newsies’ Corey Cott!! Ahhh it was ahmazing. Truly an incredible show! Loved it. It was such a great show that it’s a shame it’s closing this weekend.
So, at the end of the show we snuck out when the bows started, and we ran around to the stagedoor, to be close. We found a perfect spot at the end of the barricades, and then got autographs from ensemble member Max Clayton! We then met two other girls, who were big 1D/5SOS fans, and we started discussing Michael’s accident that happened early that night, as fangirls do, naturally.
Then, the security guard decided to block off the staged area, so the crowd pushed forward and I was kind of pushed into a corner near the wall, and therefore was only able to get Corey Cott’s autograph. (I wanted a photo because I loved his turn as Jack Kelly in Newsies!)
Then, I saw “High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens in an outfit that was gorge! Love her outfit! And I told her; she replied with a sincere “Thank you.” Ahh! And then we saw Instagram/Twitter pictures that her costar and bestie Ashley Tisdale was in attendance that night! Wow, if only we could have met her too!
Then, I was able to get a photo with Vanessa! Ahhh! She took our selfie, how cool is that! I was so excited after that!
Sunday was pretty relaxed, nothing really happened other than me and my roommate checking out my park for our assignment and getting bagels from a place nearby.
Monday was our class day, and we visited Ketchum PR and the August Wilson and Al Hirschfeld theaters. See my class blog on the day here! It was so cool to see the bare sets of “Jersey Boys” and “Kinky Boots,” wow! I came home so exhausted and sweaty; ready for bed and work the next day.
Today at work I did a juice run, getting juice and smoothies for the editors in a shoot, like four minutes after I arrived at work. Then, I brought a couple props up to the Test Kitchen (home of the GH Research Institute) where the shoot was, then it was a research day for an upcoming spread. After work, I went on a quest for stamps… And I pretty much failed, as I ended up walking more than I could have and the Post Office was closed… Luckily, a drug store with a mailbox right outside sold stamps, so yay, mission accomplished.
Then, I had about 20 minutes to spare, so I walked around TJ Maxx, to which I found some adorable Kate Spade Saturday purses… If only I needed another purse… lol. Then, it was time for dinner, where I had plans to meet some second cousins who were also here for the summer. That was fun and nice, considering I hadn’t seen them in several years… Then, I came home completely exhausted. Ready for another hectic day as an intern tomorrow!
Until next time, Miranda xx
