I’ve been buried under a pile of research — I’m pretty impressed with myself that I’ve been able to surface and write this post. We’ve been hard at work on one of The Mag’s best-selling issues of the year, which means a TON of research (literally, we print out all of our records, and I’d be willing to bet my life that it weighs at least a ton).
For the past two weeks, the edit interns and I have been slammed with work. We barely have time to do transcriptions or run errands or pitch. All the sudden, 8 interns feels like too little (and so does working for free, but that’s just part of the deal, right?) But we’re almost done with it, which is a big relief. I think I’m going to bake us a cake this weekend to celebrate. Even though its been a groan-worthy endeavor, it’ll be so cool to see the issue come out and know that the stuff we did, however tedious, is the backbone of the cover story.
Other than that, I may or may not be part of a photo shoot at a salon for a reality T.V. show with some other interns and staff at the Mag — they’re shooting right near our office and need Mag staff to be guinea pigs (yesss, free haircut). So I’ll let you know how that plays out in the next few weeks. The big launch party is coming up at the end of the month too, so I’m hoping that I’ll have some fun stuff to report about that.
What about you guys - what fun stuff have you been getting to do where you work? What are you most excited about in the next few weeks, intern-related or not?
