I debated about whether or not to post this entry in such a format, because it doesn’t really follow any of the other entry styles that I have written in. But then again, my blog = my way, and I am very much a crazy combination of things, so here we are! Week 2, Day 2 of the Intern Diaries! :)
8:39am – Missed my train by mere seconds. So frustrated, but luckily the 8:39 took me straight to London King’s Cross, and I managed to rush around the Underground so that I made it to work on time. Someone who sat in the carriage I ended up in left the windows open, and I couldn’t reach to shut them! And so a cold and windswept me arrived in London…
9:22am – Got to the office! The people at Reception recognise me now, and find it funny that I have to sign in and out every morning… I don’t, however!
9:23am – Retouch my Revlon Nude Attitude matte lipstick before going into the office.
10:35am – Cannot believe the amount of returns that have to be made! 10 suitcases full, to be precise. Shani also asked us to clean up the fashion closet, which we surprised her with, because an OCD team of myself and Callie meant that it spick and span already!
11:53am – Callie and I are speeding through returns and OCD maintenance on storage. Realise we need food. Of any kind. Absolutely anything. Start motivating ourselves by amusing each other with stories about Uni (Callie studied the same course as me at Southampton Solent!). Also motivate ourselves with a promise of buying stashes of sweets during lunch!
1:00pm – LUNCH! Rush to Covent Garden tube station to meet my brother and his girlfriend for lunch. Cue amusing conversations about everything from my blog(!) to the shop down Neal Street full of teapots in the window. God I love that shop…
1:55pm – Am forced to walk past MAC once again…
2:00pm – Back in the office. Rewarded with Percy Pigs and coffee, and more suitcases to unpack. In a really geeky way, making returns to PR companies and press offices relaxes me haha. Callie decides that at regular 5 minute intervals, we can have Pig O’Clock.
4:35pm – Zoe (the fashion intern) asks me to go to the Topshop flagship store to pick up a bag of new collection shoes! This is probably my favourite errand haha. Got annoyed by many tourists who enjoy stopping at corners/escalators/exits to chat loudly, point and stand with their suitcases. Pft.
5:05pm – Back in the office again. Finishing up on returns and cleaning up the entire office is such a good feeling, if not slightly boring. Spied lots of pretty shorts from F+F at Tesco, and maxi dresses from Missguided.com and Boohoo.com. You heard it here first ;)
6:00pm – End of work!
Did this style of intern diary entertain you more than the other one? Apologies for lack of outfit post, I was so rushed today what with missing my train, and I forgot to snap one!
