I was just told today that as our shoot comes to an end, I could stay on and help out! Doesn't that sound great? Initially, I thought so too, but I was informed that they wanted me to stay on without pay! I mean, they were paying me pennies anyways, but apparently I am not budgeted for so if I want to stick around it has to be from the goodness of my heart!
So my choices are:
1- Pack my bags and check out and be the ungrateful intern that refused to stick around
2- Swallow my pride and stick around for another few weeks, with everyone knowing that I am being taken advantage of.
What kills me is that I was not a volunteer. There are plenty of people that have agreed to help out anyway for free! I was the PAID intern!
Such is life... projects and people lose their funding all the time in this town! Who I am to wish any different?
Honestly thought, it's fine. I get to make a great impression, more exposure and I will have another few weeks of being gaga over my crush! Life could be worse I suppose.
Just another day in Hollywood :)
