Regardless, I totally forget what school is like. Everyone told me that the real business world is just a culture shock coming out of school if you've never worked before. And it is. I'll admit that I was scared out of my mind the first few days. Being surrounded everyday by people who are at the top of their careers is a little intimidating. Mostly because thats a place I want to be in five or so years. I know that sounds ambitious but I dream big. In school the thing they forget to tell you is that you will get fired if you don't go to work. But you don't get kicked out of school if you don't go to class (there are exceptions). Now I am proud to say that I have never skipped a class at Solebury, but there is an added pressure to get up in the morning that was definitely not there during school.
Since it's memorial day weekend next week, all the big names at the magazine are off vacationing in the Hampton's or something getting their grill on. Although I'm sure not without their Celine sport pants and Christian Louboutin's. So as you might have guessed, business is a little slow. Sarah, Marie's assistant left on Friday to go back to France to finish her exams. So I got 'promoted' for the next week to do all the assisting for Marie. It's mostly e-mailing clients, pulling items for the magazine and then doing all the invoices. It's really not very difficult, and the other intern who started last week (she didn't show up today so that makes me look really good) is working here as she finishes her senior year at college. Anyway it would be pretty cool to do this all day and actually get paid for it. Because I haven't even graduated high school and this is one of the easier jobs I've ever done. Really, it's nothing compared to the anguish I went through in French and Math. On a side note, everyone speaks french! Funny how the things that you struggle with the most follow you.
I'm sad this is my last week in the city! I really love working here - even if its the boring stuff.
