How are you? Rose, would you mind booking me a ticket from Paris to Victoria, BC? I am Maid of Honor in my friend's wedding and I am trying to get a ticket! haha! Flora, I am as perpetually perplexed as you are! It's the blind leading the blind!
In fact, I am pondering my future tonight as I get ready for my first day back to work. Yes, I am officially taking another spin at the fashion magazine"! I'm all ready to go... outfit picked out, nails painted, purse packed. I reread the current issue to get back in the groove and I'm perusing style.com to make sure I'm up to date on the latest in fashion news but something is still amiss. I can't help thinking that I am taking a step in the wrong direction. I don't want to say it's a step backward, because any experience is good experience, but I have already danced this dance! I swore to myself that I would never intern again, that it was Eternal Employment from here on out and yet here I am, an intern on the eve of a new internship.
It isn't supposed to be like this... I did everything right. Fancy private school, respected university, a masters degree, not to mention the internships at fashion houses and magazines in Paris and New York! And toujours an Eternal Intern. I know all the steps, I have been practicing for years and yet here I am back in the corps de ballet... never center stage!
So I ask you this, as we dance this Eternal Intern dance, is it always one step forward two steps back?
