Gone and got myself an internship

Ive only gone and got myself an internship.
HALLELUJAH!



*insert a gazillion clappy hand emojis*

It's only taken me about 10 years.
Slight exaggeration but after writing about 50 cover letters that literally all sound the same yet have to be 'unique and interesting' enough not to send the poor sod reading it to sleep, can you really blame me?
So yeah it does feel like 10 years.

I'm interning as a news features writer for nightclub and events directory site Licklist. As someone who is out until the early hours pretty much every Saturday night with a jager in hand I'd say the role fits me pretty damn well and hey who else gets to say that going out is "research".

I have to produce 2 articles each week that will feature on the sites news page. These will include features on and up coming festivals, nightclub event's and just general night out shenanigans. The style of the site is pretty humorous and witty much like my own style of writing. Basically being a bit of a sarcastic bitch seems to be what I do best. Who knew eh!
So if I do go a little off track in the next few weeks then I haven't moved to the middle of nowhere, I'm just a tad busier than usual. That being said I intend to stay on track with uploading content onto my blog and am still 100% dedicated to my little space on the internet.Just gonna have to make a few Gossip Girl shaped sacrifices, no more binge sessions for me.
*sobs uncontrollably*
Guess its time to be an actual working adult eh.

You can check out some of my articles here if you want to, or not, up to you!

  1. Oh my god Sophie that is so exciting! Getting a foot in the door anywhere these days in terms of journalism or PR is so hard I don't even know how I'm going to deal when I start looking! But seriously, that is so awesome and your first article was so great! Are you studying a degree? I'm studying journalism and PR (cue the gagging) and I'm in my second year now and although I love journalism it's slowly sinking in that it's gonna take a lot of work to get any sort of internship or job once I graduate, but damn girl congrats! I'm so happy for you!

  3. Aww thank you so much, this comment really made me smile! I decided not to go uni in the end so I've just got a part time job in retail for the moment, couldnt deal with all the essays and stress haha. I think if you just keep applying to anything and everything then something will work out, sometimes I think its just down to a bit of luck to but fingers crossed you'll find something for when you finish uni!
    Thank you so much for reading my article and for the lovely comment,
