a little bit possessive, little miss obsessive, can't get over it.

summer's been fun. Though, I should have started really early in looking for an internship. But whatevs.

I was supposed to have an interview with Lucky magazine this past Wednesday, but on Tuesday the lady called me saying they hired an employee's cousin. such bullshit. Whatever, I have an interview with In Touch Weekly later this month... and have to hear back from GQ. Wish me luck!

I guess this process and/or my mom's snide comments about me only applying to magazine internships has finally got to me. Sure. Yes. If I do work at a magazine I probably won't be making as much if I was working on wall street or whatever.. But to be honest, working at a magazine seems a hell lot more appealing than watching the clickers at the NYSE go by.

What is more important? Having a closet filled with Louboutins or doing what I truly want to do? I mean. Both equals happiness. And who's to say... sure I'll start making $40,000, but I'll move up? And make more money? I mean. It'll be more fulfilling.

I guess?

how exciting about the interviews lined up!

i'm a firm believer of doing what you love. how can you possibly feel satisfied if you're doing a job you can't feel enthusiastic about.

and of course everybody starts somewhere.

good luck with it all!

I've been searching online for ages. I check craiglist and mediabistro and ed2010. They're great sites for people who want to find great opportunities in working with magazine/publishing/PR.

Good luck!

I haven't really checked out my school's career services because I'm skeptical on what variety they have... my school seems more focused on engineering and business (even though I am a finance major)... but I'll make sure to use that resource too!
