Good News! I graduated!! Woo hoo! I made it through my 21 credit course load and finals. And also, I got an awesome job! Double woo hoo!
After receiving two different offers from PR firms in the city, I just wasn't that excited and found that I was not looking forward to my post-university/post-second real job life. And then out of the blue, came this amazing opportunity (I was actually referred to the owners of the company by my prior boss)!
So, as of June 1st I will be working at Malin+Goetz in Chelsea. I will be working at their head office on the marketing/pr/creative side. The position I am replacing has huge shoes to fill, since the woman leaving has been with the company since their start and knows the company in and out, but I'm so eager and excited to start and am really looking forward to becoming more familiar with the brand and everyone involved with the brand. I also get to train with the woman who I am replacing for a few months, and she is so wonderful and friendly...and a pug owner as well. PLUS, best part...the owners of the company bring their two dogs to work everyday(an English Bulldog and a French Bulldog)!!!! :) And their dogs, Junior and Bob are really ridiculously cute! I'm so so so excited...it was funny, on my interview we actually discussed our dogs and their personalities for about 20 minutes. Take a look at my new handsome coworkers:
And while we're dealing with pictures, here's some from graduation and a little party I had to celebrate:

In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly after birth.
The mother tiger, after recover ing from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only 'orphans' that could be found quickly were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops?? Look at what happened...
