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?!?!!?
