Week 17: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Walking past Starbucks and being given a free coffee. And two vouchers for 50p off my favourite drink. I couldn’t have hoped for a better start to the week. The Bad Getting seriously enraged at Made in Chelsea. Spencer Matthews is a joke. An extremely unfunny joke. The Unexpected Getting offered another […]

Thoughts of an Intern: Day 5

(Forgive me and my tardy nature) Friday had finally arrived and it came with a change. A change in department, an alteration in publishing field. From marketing to editorial and I couldn’t wait. So this morning I traveled up to Parsons Green as usual getting to the Coda centre at 09:50 sharp. I sat down to a […]

Week 10: The good, the bad and the unexpected

The Bad Getting up earlier than I would have ideally liked. The Unexpected Feeling really at ease so quickly on my first day. It was quite refreshing. […]

Thoughts of an Intern: Day 2

Hello Tuesday! Whilst walking to the bus I witnessed a man picking his nose with a key. Never have my eyes been privy to a more exquisite site. It just about made my day. Here I am at the station after a morning of passive smoking, coughing like a fish out of water and trying […]

Tomorrow I shall be: Rebecca, The Intern

So tomorrow is the big day. The day that my internship at Little Tiger Press begins. Excited is not the word. I am ecstatic at the prospect of getting up with the world and exercising my brain for the day. Well, for a fortnight actually. Just to feel tired will be such a welcome feeling. […]
