The past several weeks have seen some seismic changes in Elder Daughter’s routine.

After living in Cambridge, Massatoozis for over four years, E.D. has picked up and moved to Washington, D.C. Boyfriend Khody, who has spent the last year getting an advanced degree in journalism at Columbia University, will be down there scoring yet another degree, this one in International Studies. And now, they no longer have to deal with being in two different cities four hours apart.

Her search for gainful employment has gone (keyn ayin hora) well, but I will wait until contracts are signed before I say anything here. It does look like her last job - with a not-for-profit organization a stone’s throw from the Old State House in Boston - has allowed her to hone her project management and event planning skills, making herself an extremely attractive employment prospect. Of course, her personality helps there, too.

Here’s a little bit of news she passed on to us, and we think it’s exciting enough to pass on, in turn, to our Bloggy-Spherical Friends. Take it away, Elder Daughter:
A few months ago I had the pleasure of producing two short documentaries for Project: Think Different that are being included in a half hour long program on MTV. The program is called “Think HIV: This is Me” and will be airing on Friday, August 18 at 7 pm [EDT].

One of our subjects, Dennis, will be featured briefly, and Diana, the subject of our second short, is being featured as one of the program’s central figures.

“This is Me” is a commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the first AIDS diagnosis this August, and will feature American youth whose lives have been personally affected by the virus. This was a very special project to be a part of, and I worked with amazing young videographers and editors on this project - Brynmore Williams, Madhuri Sharma, and Patrick White - who all donated their time, energy, and equipment for free in order that PTD take advantage of the opportunity to be on MTV. It worked! Their talent, and our subjects’ touching personal stories, will be featured on what is a very important program. Please watch it!
I’ve already set my TiVo up...
