ten weeks ago i started a new job that without a doubt changed my life. now i won’t lie and say i was able to blog as much as i used to to, but honestly it’s okay. some of you may be thinking, “no, no it’s not”, but if there’s one thing i’ve learned this summer it’s that you can’t sweat the small stuff. for the past few weeks i interned for l’oreal in the consumer products division, aka i’d been working with l’oreal, maybelline, garnier and essie. working as a field intern i racked up many a mile on my trusty car named “duke” (she’s the man inspired), but when you drive a lot:
1. you become really comfortable navigating the road (especially multiple turnpikes, highways, etc.)
2. practicing your singing becomes commonplace. i have a really good rendition of treasure by bruno mars under my belt
3. sometimes road rage is just uncontrollable… especially in bumper to bumper traffic.
i can’t believe it’s over, because it seems like yesterday i was starting and feeling completely confused by all the beauty talk. (literally didn’t know half the terms, but i nodded along anyway) nowadays i can walk into a drugstore and identify all the products (it’s involuntary at this point), plus i can now set up a whole entire wall, which is a really cool feeling… except for the time i almost destroyed a beyonce graphic. so now that it’s over i can sit back and reflect a little bit. was it amazing? yes. was it a lot of work? without a doubt. would i have changed anything? nope, not at all.
