If At First You Don't Succeed, Try Try Again

Hey ladies,

Flora, I can't believe that there is such a thing as a pregnant intern.  As an eternal intern, I would never ever ever think that that would be OK with my bosses.  That would be career over for me!  I wouldn't be an eternal intern at my age if I wasn't serious about my career, and therefore I don't even know what to say about your intern's situation.

And Ophelia,  I would move!  Living in the same building as your boss is just NOT OK!  Period!

A quickie update:  I am no longer with that USC student, still an eternal intern working on set for pennies, a little burnt from falling asleep by the pool this weekend - still generally broke, but generally loving life.

As you both know, I had finished my first script a couple of months back and with much hope submitted it to a few indie script competitions.  Well, I have received 2 rejections now and I was starting to feel really down.  What gets me through the days of being an eternal intern is to know that I am doing everything in my power to network and advance my career on the side.  I haven't given up on my script, but I have decided to be proactive and so I have decided to make my first short film.  I wrote it a few weeks ago and have finally decided to set aside a portion of my ridiculous intern paycheck a month to save up for a semi-decent camera to shoot.  It will be written by, directed by, and starring yours truly!  Stay tuned on progress.



P.S.  Can you guys believe it is May already?!?!!?

  1. Wow, that's SO exciting!! What a brave thing to do, but the payoff will be huge I'm sure! Can't wait to read more about it, and eventually see it hopefully :) I always say, dream big or don't at all!
