after a long two month search, i finally got a job today! i had my second interview this morning and was informed at the end of it that i was hired and that i'll be starting in two weeks, on the tuesday after labor day.

wow, it feels to finally have a paying job!

even though it doesn't have much to do with what i actually want to do, i'm still elated to finally be employed.

after my interview, i went to the Angelika alone and saw "The Namesake." i love watching movies alone during the weekdays in the afternoons, the theatres are always so empty. i read the book late last year, and i have to say while the movie was visually stunning due to all the beautiful people, clothing, and other details of Indian culture, the book was much better. the book takes place in boston, but the movie takes place in nyc and that made a huge difference in my mind, and not for the better. the character of Ashima seems more central in the movie, but the book is more about her son Gogol. well, the movie was still enjoyable and i loved the actress who plaed Ashima. she was so beautiful and graceful. i've always felt that Desi woman are some of the most beautiful in the world. suffice it to say, i definitely recommend the movie.

next week is my last week before i start work. i'm thinking of asking my bosses at the magazine if i can make this week my last. i'd like a full week of doing absolutely nothing to ready myself.


  1. Thwany, Congratulations on your new job! I'm so happy for you! How exciting, a new beginning. Remember to stay positive,ok?

    I've been looking out for 'The Namesake' at our local video ezy eversince I read about it on Ming's NYC Daily photo blog. No sign of it so far,though. I'll go get the book first. Take care of yourself, and oh, thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. Congratulations!! Sounds like someone needs to go out and celebrate and get totally mean, drink sensibly and be home by 10 PM. :-)

    Welcome to the wonderful world of waking up at 7:30 AM.
