second week at 17 magazine

Saturday, July 25, 2009 ♥ 4


Hi, lovelies! :)

What have you been up to? I feel like time is just whizzing by, it's the weekend already! It's probably because I am enjoying my internship so much. I always leave work with a smile on my face because every day is wonderful.

I. Really. Love. My. Job.

Since the last time I wrote about my glossy gig, I've proofread articles, assisted in two photo shoots, was the subject of one photo shoot (Go Green!), attended beauty events, organized the beauty cupboard, filed some stuff, subbed pages, arranged the magazine shelf (totally my forté - I do that in my room all the time haha), ate yummy cupcakes, gotten a coupla awesome freebies ('cos my boss is just so sweet!) and was part of the editorial meeting for the November issue.

Yes, the last bit was the most important, my favourite, and what I came here hoping to do! The meeting lasted about 3 hours, albeit don't imagine it to have some sort of nerve-wrecking, women-in-suits kind of vibe. It was serious but relaxed and fun at the same time. We voiced out our ideas for our respective columns and the editor would either approve or disapprove. Either way, we will, as a team, spend time refining the idea to make it spectacular. I was really excited because the team were open to my ideas eventhough I'm just a wee intern and was even given the exciting task of writing one Love feature, one Health feature, and one quiz, as well as to assist the fashion writer (she's really such a stylish sweetie) with the DIY section.

This is an unpaid internship, but money is nothing compared to the experience that comes with this job. Being able to do the little things that help the magazine move along (like organizing stuff, etc.) is fantastic, and being able to write is absolute fulfillment. The ecstasy that comes with the task... it's pure joy. I've always dreamed of this. I've always wanted this.

Thanks, God.
