That’s right! I’m moving to Austin THIS WEDNESDAY. I recently accepted a job with Main Street Hub as a social media profile manager & I couldn’t be more excited. I’m not entirely sure what to expect, but at least I’m getting my foot in the door and starting out my career.
That being said, today is the last day of my internship with Ekistics, Inc.
It’s been a wonderful experience understanding the inner workings of a boutique hotel, learning about the distinct design in loft spaces, event planning, as well as researching the creative people that are the backbone of this brand.
I’ve met some incredibly talented people, and to finish up my time here tomorrow night we are throwing an event to honor Charles Bukowski on his birthday. As a brand that celebrates creative people, Bukowski is a genius curmudgeon of epic proportions. Not only was he an original poet, but he was first published by the Loujon Press. I’ve been spending my time in the Williams Research Center in New Orleans collecting archives on him for the event as well as chasing down every place he lived and worked in his time spent here. Through this process, I also discovered my 65 year old dad was Bukowski’s friend as well as one of the top Buk book collectors in the South. It’s been a great experience preparing for this event as well as bonding with my dad over his favorite poet.
Pictures of event will be posted soon.
