Anyone can submit a picture of… Continue

On the road to self-discovery, what I've learned (so far)

At first I was going to put this post outside theMET but I decided...fuck it...let's keep it here.

A Little Sappy But Oh So Sweet: An Old Music Video, First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes

Song has been added to the music player.

I don’t know where I’ve… Continue

As much as the Met has opened up new and exciting opportunities and ideas, it's also given me a fair amount of stress. Putting yourself out to the public is damn scary, I don't care who you are. So as much as I love conquering that fear, I can't help but struggle with it each and every day.

Here are the particular questions that have haunted me these past few weeks:

1. Will I ever feel ready to open up the Met to the public?
