Stephen came and picked me up. I had asked him if he could help me get some photography supplies. We stopped by the bank first so I could pick up some money and went to micro center. They didn't have the exact memory card i wanted but got a Ultra II 8gb card and a 1 terabite hard drive. We then went to Barnes and Nobles to read some magazines and I could get some ideas. After wards we went to Century 21 to window shop and try on clothes. I had no idea there were no dressing rooms, but instead just a room with mirrors where guys just undressed there. The stuff i picked up did not fit me at all so going in there was a waste of time anyway.

I got to the location of the event early but had no idea how to get in. I had to find out that its on the 5th floor plus I came too early. I hung around and met some people. Around 8 the event really started to begin and i got to work. I met the other photographers which coincedently were named Nick. I had asked Vitaly to come to the event but wasn't so sure he would come so I kept an eye out for him. At one point I got hungry since the only thing I ate that day was a bagel. So I took a quick break and ate 3 sugar cookies.
My boss Natalie came and gave me some fliers to show people where the pictures would be posted. The fliers helped out so much explaing where the pictures would be but it was hard to tell people when they were very drunk and the music was loud. Vitaly came by around 11:30pm but since I was working around I had forgotten to put his name on the list. But he still got in as my plus one. He could tell I was nervous around everyone and helped calm me down.

I was still going around taking pictures and the first band began to play. I took a lot of pictures of Shinobi Ninja (the band). While they were playing Vitaly came up and asked me if i was hungry and went and got me some Mcdonalds. He came back when the band had finished their set. I ate and drank while the next band set up. As soon as they started I started taking pictures. They weren't as active as the first band but suddenly Vitaly pointed out to me a Bear dancing around which made that night much more awesome. It was getting late and Vitaly wanted to leave but only one more thing was left. Once the Dj's set up I took as many pictures as I could. The bear then began to "DJ" the music while everyone danced. I took some more shots and then left with Vitaly
We hung out in his car for awhile and just hung out. We stopped by a porn shop for laughs and then went to a papaya place where we both had Corndogs for the first time. It was a tasty experience and I would deffinetly have it again. It was around 4am so we went to this place in the city where we gt a little room and just slept till 9am. On the way to get breakfast we stopped by a flea market by rush. The Flea market had so much awesome old cameras. If I had a lot of money I would of bought so much stuff. We left after brousing for a while.
Vitaly and me then decided to go get some Korean food. But since it was still early many places were still closed. But found a place called So32 which had some decent food but not amazing. I'm always trying something new with Vitaly so thats always a plus when I hang out with him. During our meal he found out how ticklish I really was and proceeded to use that to his advantage for the rest of the day we were together. He then drove me to penn station and said our goodbyes.
