Where Have I Been?!

Bebe Zeva is AWESOME.
Like I said in my last post, I've been crazy busy lately in my job / fall internship search. After being unemployed since April (at my own will, of course!), I've managed to keep myself busy by interning at Life & Style Weekly, obsessing over Bebe Zeva's latest looks, and checking Ed2010 and freefashioninternships.com for new postings every. five. minutes.

Seriously. That's actually the main reason behind my absence in the blogosphere -- my addictive Type A tendencies. Although I have tons of free time, and I just can't seem to focus. At least three times a day, I'll log on to Blogger, with an awesome idea for a post, but I won't be able to complete it, or in some cases, even start it. And why not? Because I'm obsessive.

You see, after signing the lease for my amazing but ridiculously expensive apartment, I realized how much I hated my job. So, I quit. And although I felt far less suicidal in the following months, it suddenly dawned on me that I no longer have any means to support myself, except of course for my wealthy parents and my boyfriend who works in Sak's Fifth Avenue's corporate office. But as we already know, I hate relying on other people. So, I started my job hunt.

Even these SIMS got a job easier than I did!
With no retail experience, I knew full well that it would be pretty hard to land something at a clothing store. But honestly, I wasn't asking for anything too glamorous -- just a part-time gig at Express, is all. Even this, though, proved difficult.

And that's just the job. You should know by now that's I'm really big on internships. I mean, demanding bosses, competitive peers, unappreciative clients, and no pay -- how does it possibly get better than that?! Really, all kidding aside, internships are great experience, and I've been lucky enough not to get hit with any bad experiences along the way. In fact, all of my internships have been absolutely incredible!

Hint: I haven't been writing about it -- I've been busing living it.
As I've mentioned far too many times, I'm currently interning at Life & Style Weekly. I absolutely love it, but unfortunately the commute is killer. (An hour and a half by bus to Englewood Cliffs, NJ) And, of course, the fact that I want to vary my experience beyond editorial. So, as good internships fill up quickly, I began searching for the perfect Fall internship immediately after landing my position at Life & Style back in June.

This was just the back story of why I've been gone. I promise, my next post will focus on the results of my job & internship search!
