I've put my website development plans on hold - for now - until I can complete my thesis. Until then, I'm forced to use Wordpress to create a simple portfolio: anitakissee.com

Vespa Chicks!

I FINALLY got a few videos up on blip.
This isn't my BEST story, but a fun one!  I also added some others, if you're bored.

Ha Ha... Real Funny!

New York is such a comedian!
It's hard to tell by this bad cell phone picture, but that's snow!
Oh ya - did I mention it's the first day of spring?

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Every time I leave my apartment, I get sad.
My time here's almost over.

Sometimes you have to get out of the big city to really get a "feel" for America.  Patrick and I spent a little time in Clarksville, TN.  His new employer is based in Nashville.  Conveniently, I had several people I wanted to include in my thesis here!  It's a charming town about an hour outside Nashville.

Trip to Toronto

Documentary filmmaking (I just like saying that - you all know it's just my thesis) took me to Toronto, Canada in January.  This was the lovely view from my hotel window:
PDX2NYC assisted me on this trip in exchange for a ticket and hotel.  (good deal!)  With only one interview, we rented a car and played tourist for the day.  Niagara Falls is stunning even in winter.  
The ice formations from the spray were each a piece of art.
And check out the darling gloves she found!  I can't wait to see her wear those on the subway or the vespa!

They grow them big here!
