First of all, what’s the definition of a trip? Like how long can it be until it’s not a trip anymore, is there a time frame?
I’m not 100% on making New York my permanent place of residence, so even though I’ve been here for almost 7 months, can I still consider this a trip? Is it possible to take a 1 or 2 year “trip”..?
Well if so, the biggest highlight would be interning at Madison Square Garden. I’ve talked plenty about this, but I take nothing for granted so having the opportunity to work for one of the most popular arenas and biggest brands in the world is the most major highlight I have so far.
That’s gonna have to count, because I don’t really go anywhere.
Last Thursday I had to cover the Nickelback, Bush, Seether and My Darkest Days concert at Madison Square Garden.
And since I had employee access, I was right next to the stage, but on the side. So, when I casually went to go to the bathroom it was then I realized that the band’s dressing rooms were right there and I ended up sharing a bathroom with My Darkest Days. I’m not a fan or anything, so I just told them they played a good set and then continued to pee lol.
And then after Nickelback finished, as I was exiting backstage I ran into their drummer and said “good show” to him as I walked by and he thanked me.
It was sort of cool, but definitely would’ve been more awesome if it were bands that I wanted to see. I will say though, I thought the concert was going to suck completely and it actually only sucked a little.
And this post is actually really relevant, because I got the email today that I got the Digital Marketing Internship starting June 1!!! (Maybe I’ll be the one to take over the tumblr and bring it new life?)
I’m trying to fluff up my resume as much as possible and as fast as possible, because I didn’t take the time to do all of this while I was actually in college.
I have an interview for a digital marketing internship at the PR agency Big Picture Media. Some of their clients include:
- Cute Is What We Aim For
- Every Avenue
- The Maine
- The Secret Handshake
- Taboo (from The Black Eyed Peas)
- The Summer Set
- The Used
It’s unpaid, but I really want it! The only problem though is if they would want me to start within the next 2 months (the post didn’t say if it’s an immediate start or a summer position) because I won’t be free until the end of May. I wish there were more hours in the day…
I’m just hoping to have a good interview so if my availability does get in the way now, maybe they would still consider me for a future position.
