New Brooklyn Fire Proof studio space
Yup. 125 square feet or so on the first floor up, room 216, a.k.a my new studio space. Apparently parts of Top Chef season 5 and Make Me A Supermodel were filmed at the building next door (or so the website says....) Kinda nifty if you ask me.
I do feel like I am fumbling blindly a bit through this process - the extreme commute aside, I am finding it particularly difficult to put my trust into a neighborhood I have visited but once and believe that my request for my art supply company to deliver 6 foot wide bulls-eyes...er, boxes of canvas to the locked building will result in said supplies actually making it not only into the building but somewhere preferably near my studio space....) That's putting a whole lot of trust into a whole lot of anonymous strangers....
Coordination is key I suppose. So, I'm calling my supplier today and seeing if I can't somehow coordinate 400.00 of hulking canvas arriving at my studio when I am there, which is no small task, let me assure you. This is assuming I can coordinate with my ex, as he has informed me his scheduled time with our son this weekend has been called into question because he wants to attend...Harvest Fest. Alrighty. I shall coordinate around that too. Just call me task manager 9000, model A. To be fair he told me about this months ago. But, my career waits for no one and has always had this sneaky way of blind siding me as if to scream, "Are you ready?!?"
I figure if I can make it through this much fuss I can make it through pretty much anything my new situation can throw at me....Right?
**update - I want to give credit where credit is due, my son's father is taking our little one this weekend after all. He said he'd rather help me out. I gotta say I am surrounded by the most supportive people :)
