The sort of summer holiday I’d like…

The sort of summer holiday I’d like…

I spent my summer holidays as a teen doing absolutely zilch and being quite unproductive in general.  I’m thinking if I was a bit smarter, I should have got my ass and applied for an internship at a magazine.  Then I could spend my days tidying up issues and issues of Dazed & Confused, D&C Japan, Another mags going back to the 90’s when you had double covers going on the front and back.  Hmm… flicking through dusty mags and ordering them by issue number and year… lovely stuff… (there wasn’t an ounce of sarcasm in that by the way…)…

    Being surrounded by magazines all day would be amazing, an having to organize them by date would feed into my slight OCD. I might even organize the piles alphabetically too!

    It would be amazing to intern at a magazine, bit unpractical if you don’t live in London though.

    God, I wish someone would go back to my teenaged self and get me off my ass. How little did we know back then?
    I would have done EVERYTHING to intern at Ray Gun – and I rue never picking up the Radiohead cover.

    I want those magazines!!!!!!!
    It’s so easy to hoard them but they could easily finish your storage area. I just can’t stop hoarding magazines.

    I’ve lost months of my live to magazine catalouging and ordering both at work and personal life.
    It is a sheer delight until someone makes you hurry up!

    i would give my favourite pair of scuffed no name cowboy boots to do that for a living. it beats dealing with the boring no name clients and boss I speak with daily. chin up mate – its got to be better than digital advertising… no? have a great weekend Susie, xf
