Another day, another internship

It’s day 3 of my Publicity internship at Orion. And although I am sick of working for free this internship is turning out to be rather exciting. Today I came into the office, deposited my sandwich in the fridge and filled up a watering can. Yes, a watering can. In a publishing house. Of all […]

‘You said I must eat so many lemons, cause I am so bitter.’

Today is already a bad day. At 10:21 I already want to crawl back into bed and wake up in someone else’s life. Because mine isn’t feeling so great at the moment. Today someone could so much as look at me and I’d burst into tears. There are cracks in my foundations. I woke up at 8:30 and […]

Week 11: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Thoughts of an Intern: Day 3

(Sorry this is a quite few days late, working and commuting was more tiring than I anticipated.) Guten Tag Mittwoch! I cannot believe it’s the middle of the week already. I also cannot believe that I don’t have my iPod with me this morning; I’ve misplaced it again. But now I can be far more […]

Week 6: The good, the bad and the unexpected

The Unexpected The Police warning a haughty lad outside the toilet I was in. Awkward. Tuesday: The Good Going for a bracing walk in the cold. […]

Week 5: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Applying for more work experience including Little Tiger Press. Mum coming home from work early for our Vicar’s funeral so that we ended up spending the afternoon together; walking, drinking Starbucks and pottering around the charity shops. She treated me to a gorgeous maroon velvet blazer and a tall Vanilla Spiced Latte. […]

A creative day indeed

Money is not my friend at the moment, it actually gives me palpitations thinking about the amount sitting in my bank account that has to last me for the foreseeable future. But its a lesson I suppose. I’m learning that although I don’t have a lot of disposable income I do have a huge amount of stuff. Some of […]
