A hurricane is about to hit the place I now consider home. I worry about my friends back there but I somehow wish I could be experiencing this with them. I miss the city that much. I wish I could feel how different the city feels in the wake of the storm. Mostly, I want to see what the city is like without MTA. MTA is such a part of everyday life, I can’t imagine it not running. I still have my last MetroCard in my wallet. If anyone can survive this large of a storm, it’s New York. And they’ll do it with style.
On the more fun side of missing the summer, the VMAs are this weekend. I got my swag in the mail so now I am totally prepared (yay hoodie!). I can’t wait to watch having experienced the other side of making it happen. You bet I will be on the website, with the twitter feed open, following along with the people I worked with this summer. I do love going through MTV.com and knowing what kind of work went into everything. Here is a video from a shoot that my department did the week after I left. I was able to help with the prep work but I so wish I had been there for the shoot. I can’t wait until I can get back to a place in my life were this kind of goofy video is my job. Please enjoy. This is why I love MTV.
