saying goodbye

it was supposed to only be dinner,
but i didn’t end up leaving until the second afternoon.

totally broke down and cried on bart back to sf
because it finally hit me;
i still really love him.

but of course, you know how the story ends:
girl moves to new york.

but this one memory kept repeating in my head yesterday and today:
i was so nervous when my documentary premiered that i was shaking the whole time,
and that whole time, he held onto my hand really tightly.
when the credits rolled in and the audience started clapping,
he leaned over and whispered, “that’s my girl.”

doing cool shit just isn’t all that when you don’t have him by your side.

my summer job @ziff davis

geeking out on the computer, behind the camera,
having annaliza, the most awesome boss in the world, let me try, fail, succeed, learn, grow..
just having a great time.

candid shot of robert and patrick. they’re so funny and sweet.


i was helping annaliza find footage for a quick cranky geeks promo video.
ended up capturing and editing the footage to help her save time.
after she saw what i had in final cut,
she said, “throw in some text and polka and you’re done.”

i got all giddy when the promo first aired. :)

i’m a little sad to go.. well not really go.
i just won’t be there full time anymore when school starts.

awe yeah awe yeah

i nailed my interview this morning at ziff davis media.
