Lugubrious asks: Hi, I’m another New Zealander, hope you’re well. I’ve just recently been to New York and I’m desperate to get back there asap, with my graduate visa (in a couple of years). I was just wondering how have you managed to stay in NY and how difficult is it to stay over there for more than the one year visa (coming from NZ)? Cheers!

Hello Lugubrious, how’s it going? Let’s talk American work visas, which you’ll need if you want to live here in the USA as a legal alien.

Like I mentioned last month, Harriet Were designed me a sweater, and it just arrived in New York City. Coincidentally, this was actually my 30th birthday present from my beloved sister Rebeccah, and it’s her birthday today in New Zealand, so as a special gift to mon soeur, here’s a picture of me in my new jumper. Happy Birthday, Rebeccah!!! Is that a fair exchange? Hard to say. But let’s go with it!

Did you know that when I first started this blog I was so obsessed with dressing like a schoolboy that I used to go to uniform stores in Auckland and buy actual school uniform sweaters and pants and socks in that perfect shade of charcoal grey? True story. So I guess you could say that if I’ve had any stylistic evolution over the past six years, it’s been from student to student teacher… And I guess we could count the 50 shades of grey in my hair as a kind of personal evolution.
