Internship,Why You So Complicated?

I’m a Journalism major and part of the requirement to graduate is you need to have an internship.

I’ve been a senior for the last 2 fucking years.

No job, ever- so no work experience.

I do have like 170 credits , so that counts for something right!?

The problem is this: I have no car and have to rely on the boyfriend to drive me( Fuck you michigan for your lack of transportation), meaning I have to stay in a decently close proximity to home or school.

We are poor. So I need an internship that pays.

Do you know how many there are in my area.

approximately 10. I know its an exaggeration,but when it NEEDS to pertain to fucking journalism, guess what- we dont get paid!

I did get a call back for two different places, but both are a little further than we both like and unpaid.

I leave for NY tomorrow until after the New Year, our phones are shut off (thanks lex for not paying) and im fucking stressed.

I’m really considering doing some bad shit for money but then that wont help my internship problem.

People( the families)keep telling me to find one online, okay old people you go online and find a legit place to intern out and if you do fuck, way better than I did and send it my way bitches.

Want to know the most fucked up part…

I dont even want to be in this fucking field anymore. I mean i knew it would happen like this. I’m good at it, dont get me wrong, especially advertising and public relations but I want to write, I always have. I do that here, and I love it,but when you contribute very little to the world and relationship you just kinda wanna crawl under a rock.

Ugh, today will consists of packing, cleaning, internship looking, hair pulling(not the good kind) and hopefully some writing.

Happy holidays my ass.

Kidding, Hope everyone is doing great!

  1. Internships suck. Trying to sort out a career without experience is really tough. I am not sure what to when I’m back on the market. My biology degree from 15 years ago is obsolete now. I’m facing what I put together when I’m out of the clinic. “So, Marcus, can you explain this two year gap, when you weren’t working?” “Ah, yeah. Easy. Funny story actually. That was when I was in two separate university hospitals because the obsessive voices in my head tell me to kill myself every day. Funny, right?! But I’m a team-player, I’m great with Microsoft PowerPoint and I don’t mind giving presentations. Do you have a company softball team? I love sports! (And trying to kill myself) Did I say that part out loud?”

    • omgggg i must sound like a crazy person because literally laughed out loud. Thats pretty much how mine goes. “how have you demonstrated that you are considerate? uhm what? “I like to help old ladies home and other nice things, i like petting cats” HORRRIBLE. lmao “oh you have no experience” shit. If running away from a person was acceptable I would. ” What you guys dont want depressed girl who can somewhat write?” your lost. lol. Its okay because in my fantasy( lies i will be telling my family) everyone wants me! I’m pushing employers off with a sick .

  2. Ugh, I hear you!!! On so much of this. On being young, broke, feeling like you’re not contributing to the world… Oh, and phones being shut off because money is no where to be found. I am with you!!!!

    • The dramas!! Seriously going grey lol im glad im not the only one,well kinda lol not happy that someone else is dealing with it but glad im not alone. 😊

      • I’m 25, and going to grad school. It never really gets easier when you’re a student. Sometimes, finding jobs gets easier, but never when you desperately need one. I wish I could tell I’ve gotten my shit together since my senior year of undergrad, but my car is on the verge of breaking down, and I’m wildly broke right now. Hahahahah soooooo no. No major improvements here. I do eat a lot better! Lol I’ve eaten “clean” and we’ll for over two years. I never made time for that before 23.

        • Okay wow now i do feel a little better. I feel like everyone expects you to have your shit together by 25 but life doesnt always work that way. Congrats on the grad school,perhaps I’ll go one day haha.omg so sorry about your car! And tru story at least you’re eating clean! Lmao i say baby steps!

          • Right? I set yearly life goals for myself. This year, it’s to be less flip floppy with working out. I’m like 3 months on, 5 months off. Hahaha financially, I might have it together by my 30’s. Who knows. Thank god I don’t have kids.

          • Omg i say the same thing (about the kids)lol. This year i think im going to set myself some goals…nothing too crazy haha. Financially, I’m looking at the 30s also..hopefully 😮

          • You know, my problem is is that I have a job and I’m decently qualified for most jobs in my field, but I love to travel. I travel cheaply, but as often as I can! Last year, I found a flight to LA from Chicago(where I am) for $64. So, I obviously had to go. I couldn’t not go. So, maybe by my 30’s I’ll have more self control with not flaking on jobs so I can spontaneously leave. 😂 my parents are always saying that they’re waiting for a text someday, telling them that I decided to move to Europe instead of finishing school. Who knows. It’s still an option.

          • lol that’s awesome, even if it does infer with things lol. Seriously 64?! where are you finding these prices?! haha that’s my go to place too , I keep trying to talk the boyfriend into it. ” soo what you can probably finish school over there” lmao

          • Yeah, for real. Everywhere! I’m basically an amateur travel agent at this point. I went to Phoenix in August for $80 round trip , and I think it was through Spirit. Seriously. If you ever need to book a trip and you’re struggling to find the best prices, I’m your girl! It’s a treat for me to day dream and speed through airline prices.
