That's the OPPOSITE of what I wanted

Last night in Philadelphia, I gave a very strong audition for a student film project at UArts. Dan, the exec producer of Paper Cuts, emailed me with the casting call for the opportunity, and I am always one to go out for student projects to add to my experience of filmmaking. And since I had callbacks in NYC this weekend, I grabbed the 8pm chinatown bus to get to NYC. I threw my clothing bag in the bottom of the bus, and then found a seat. As I'm sitting in the bus, getting out my book and listening to my ipod, I was wondering if my bag was going to be okay down there. And, even though I've long ago learned to trust my instincts, I decided that it would be okay. It was just paranoia. But when I got to NYC, the bag was not in the bottom of the bus. So I think I was robbed. Lots of clothing was taken, not much else, but I was sad to lose my Superman baseball hat that travelled the country with me twice. So today I have to go buy some clothes so I have something to wear to my callback tomorrow. And it really, really sucks.

$25 round-trip - leaves from 30th St Station and drops you off at Penn Station

Sucks indeed! That's how I felt when I left my camera on a taxi in Mexico. Fortunately material possessions can be replaced (although it doesn't necessarily make you feel any better). Onward!

Lucky for me, it wasn't anything too valuable. The Superman hat, yes, but I've already found a potential replacement. And I actually found the exact same sweater I lost, on sale at Macy's in NYC. So I did luck out.
