Parsons might just be the next thing. I always say I’ll never go back to New York, and I don’t think I would ever for good, but for a little while (and with the prospect of a year in Paris to boot) it might just be the thing.
Coming off a treacherous couple of months — and, by treacherous, I mean the kind of thing that makes one think that one is, in fact, a useless dullard put on the earth to type and say “Yes’m”… or, as Santi is fond of saying, the kind of stuff that puts a hurt on your soul — it was the best kind of news today that came over the beautiful internet transom. Not an answer, but an option. That’s exciting.
I submitted a proposal with a colleague to the V&A Museum last year that was summarily dismissed, but that was good enough to garner some interest from other folks … okay, let me be honest, here. I worked the heck out of some connections on LinkedIn (it’s magic, that LinkedIn!) to find a champion at Cooper Hewitt who hipped me to a new program at Parsons in strategy design and management.
There is still a ways to go, but it’s never too soon for hope. And that’s huge.
