Happy Valentines lovelies! I am sitting at my dining room table inhaling lindt truffles refreshing my twitter feed. Calories don’t count on Singles Awareness Day and I’m making up for the calories I missed out on when I fasted for Ash Wednesday. I wore a red dress and lace tights to show everyone even though I may be dateless I wasn’t lifeless. I scratched a few lottery tickets and broke even. I slept in my Queen sized bunk bed (Papa finished them this past weekend -yay!!) until 11 and wasted time in my pajamas until around 1.
BECAUSE AT 1:15 I HAD MY DISNEY COLLEGE INTERVIEW.
I know I haven’t mentioned this huge life changing interview, sorry.. but I am still trying to figure out what I am doing with my summer. I applied to work at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or as a Concierge/Hospitality role in a hotel in Walt Disney World from May-Jan (just incase I can’t make up my mind on life in Manhattan or what schools to go to…no word on that yet).
My other option is a Coach Internship in NYC from May-Aug. I have an in person interview March 8th. It’s set up like a Job Fair, so I get to meet with HR reps in various departments such as styling and merchandising. It sounds incredible, but because it is set up like a Job Fair, this invitation only interview is going to have as many people as a Job Fair might too.
That’s nerve wrecking.
What should I do if I get Disney? It sounds fantastic, but it isn’t necessarily fashion related. Also, I could know as soon as next week about the Disney positions, which means I have 10 days after that to decide. I may not have even gone to NYC yet for the Coach interview!
Disney is really selective too, so what if I get neither? Roughly 40,000 apply and 5,000 get chosen.. out of WDW and Disney Land. That’s a lot more than 15 possible intern spots at Coach (guesstimating).
I suppose time will tell. At least I have all those dresses to wear in either situation once the warm weather comes.
I also applied for the Jack Wills internship -which if you aren’t familiar it is the ultimate summer internship.
Like blows Coach and WDW out of the water.
Maybe I just say that since I already work for Coach and I don’t love rollar coasters, but wait.. Let me describe it.
Represent a preppy British brand on the beaches on a variety of Northeastern US coasts all summer, planning events at night. Learn the retail and merchandising ropes from the industries best. Getting the opportunity to go to London for a week, including the JW polo. It’s the summer I have dreamed of.
Of course the competition for that is.. in the words of Tyra Banks:
I wouldn’t find out about being chosen in the top 150 for that until February 25th, and then I have to submit a 1.5 min video explaining why I deserve the summer of a lifetime. Not to say I doubt your preppy votes on my behalf, but it wouldn’t be easy since I currently know like 3 people in the town I live in (including the guy I sold Coach flip flops to for V-day) so popularity isn’t my middle name.
It’ll all fall into place though I’m sure. I applied for positions at Chanel, DEB, Aero, Rue 21, and ModCloth as an Assistant Buyer starting in the summer, because I will have completed my Associates. When I’m not working 20-25 hours a week and completing 23 credit hours I have a surplus of time after all *sarcasm*
..oh guys I also don’t know what to give up for lent. Clearly not shopping or chocolates, I was finally approved for a Discover Card (yaaaay for big kid accomplishments!) and work across from the Lindt truffle store. Remember those 12 pounds I lost when I left school? Me neither. #CatholicGirlProblems
