Do I not look smashing? I thought so, too. (That white splotch is on the camera lens, not my fancy new clothes.) I bought three ensembles to try on for my family. Kelsey liked the blue the best, Eric liked the white the best, Kayleigh liked the red the best. The color choices were not intentionally patriotic. I got a new pair of dress pants because the ones I have, which I loved, are pathetically, sickeningly small on me now. I don't dress up often, and I hate shopping. To find three things I liked was miraculous. Anyway, we decided on red, which matched my glasses and my skin, and which might be a little risky for an interview.
What interview? Oh, right.
I interviewed for an internship (I feel so young saying that) at the Wisconsin State Journal, Madison's biggest newspaper.
So, I got the job. I'll be working on the city desk. It pays a whopping $25 a week, but the opportunity to work with an editor at a large (for me, anyway) daily is invaluable. I hope I can come up with some good story ideas! And I hope I don't stuff envelopes.
