Let me start off by saying that I am in no way familiar with New York City and I consider this my first actual time, seeing as I have seen more today than I ever did getting on and off of a bus.
I wake up at 5:30 AM to get ready, drive to the Greyhound station, in a rush I might add, and get on my 7 AM bus to New York City. At this point my nerves are calming. I sit next to a wonderful girl that had already been on a train from farther in Pennsylvania and still had to take another bus and yet another train to get into Massachusetts. The two of us talk for a while, then I find myself passed out in my seat. When I wake up, I am greeted by the glorious skyline.
Something you should know about me, I pretty much take pictures of everything and try to catch all the little nuances that happen throughout my day. Here is my first step on New York pavement at 9:21am.
Another thing you should know about me is that I am not a coordinated person and when I do things for the first time I am incredibly rusty at it and cannot, under any circumstances, pass off as a natural. My search to find CBS was a difficult one, but with a call to my mother (with my phone battery dying, no less), I found my way to the headquarters. I had totally passed right by it. Go figure.
After all the preliminary business, I sit down with Justina Wong, a photojournalism intern that has been working at CBS for 3 months now. Needless to say, she is a pro and I took all my ques from her.
