This is how I've been dressing up lately. Loose and comfortable, so I can easily move around and do my best impression of greatest intern in the whole world. Yep, I recently got an internship! It's with a small and relatively new magazine called Depot Fashion Magazine, where I found out Aisa of Drowning Equilibriums also works. Yay for a familiar face! I finally got to meet her in person and see her styling in action, which was awesome.

I've always toyed around with the idea of working for a magazine, and it's only recently I realized that it's something I could see myself doing for a long time. Not necessarily for something fashion-related, but the idea of putting together a magazine is really fascinating to me, and I thought I'd give it a shot. But being an International Relations major with little creative writing and artistic background, I don't really have much to offer (only my genuine interest, enthusiasm, and charm, har har) and feel that I need to learn more before jumping in the shark tank. So, I went with my gut and decided to take this small, hopefully promising step forward. I'm happy I did!

I'm only a week into this, and I can already say that it's great. The schedule's irregular, but it's pretty flexible and convenient. I'm also unpaid, but I've got to start somewhere, right? I'm learning while having fun, and the people I've met so far are incredibly nice and down-to-earth, so it's all really inspiring and motivating.

Good vibes abound! Hoping that everything else will fall into place and that more blessings will come in the upcoming months.
