A fast-paced time in life
Internships, Master’s studies, working out and all else in between: these previous weeks have been hectic and crazy, literally running from one place to another, keeping track of your ever-growing checklist while keeping a healthy and active lifestyle but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. A couple of weeks ago, I began an editorial internship at YU Fashion Media, meanwhile managing a museum’s Instagram account for a Communications internship. I also joined an international student organization’s PR and Marketing teams.
Then there are my Journalism studies: in all honesty, I like this curriculum and the opportunities, however I do not see myself as a journalist in the future, if only a fashion journalist. I would rather work in Public Relations or Communications, we’ll see what it all adds up to.
And when there is a free instance
In those spare moments such as waiting for my coffee to be ready, walking to class or doing my makeup, I find myself thinking what am I devoting my time to and why. Why do I want to blog? It is as simple and as natural as this: writing is a basic necessity for my happiness. Without it, I feel like something very important is missing. Even though it’s once again been far too long since my last post and I need to find a better strategy for my time-planning, I put so much effort into every single post. I want it to be perfect. I want the text to run smoothly and the pictures to be coordinated, not to mention crisp and clear image quality. Everything has to feel and look right. I am still working on the perfect template for my blog. All of this work in progress is not easy, but with every small victory I feel how much it all is worth to me.
At the end of the day
Even though my fashion journalism internship has allowed me to devote more of my “working time” to writing, I have to say that writing more here feels like a necessity and not doing it literally feels painful. Like I said: something’s missing.
