CC’s Secret Intern Diary: Eco-Friendly Vinyl Bullsh*t
[When CollegeCandy put out a request for a Secret Intern to write an Internship Diary, we got some truly cringe-inducing stories, but “Elisa’s” experience trumped all.
Currently, “Elisa” is interning for a big, flashy 5th Avenue designer. Sounds awesome, right? Well, read the second installment HERE, and then read on…]
I am now the Google master.
This past week I’ve literally spent 6 of the 8 hours I’m here “researching” for things that do not exist whatsoever. I understand that she’s trying out the whole green idea, but lady, let’s be reasonable here. Recycled clear vinyl bags? Uh… hello? CLEAR VINYL. I have no idea what kind of company makes shopping bags that are clear, and vinyl, and recycled.
I must have gone through hundreds of “eco-friendly” tote bag sites that have all been rejected because they are not clear. LET’S COMPROMISE HERE… FOR THE EARTH! Aside from researching for these vinyl bags, I also researched sample cups (which also had to be clear), and eco-friendly ice cream cups.
Yeah… eco- friendly my ass.
She needs to give that dream up.
If my time isn’t being spent researching, it’s definitely spent calling this list of, oh I don’t know, 600 people?! It had magazine editors and reporters from all over the place and I had the amazing task of calling each and every one of them… to ask about useless information.
Not only that, I had to keep watching my back to make sure the accountant lady didn’t want to kill me for being so “loud”. Some people… I swear. If it wasn’t for Facebook, I would literally die in this place. At least they don’t notice me stealing candy from the back…
And I’ve finally figured out why New York people can stay so thin…
Food is way too expensive to eat every day.
Big highlight of the week?
The items have now gone on super sale, and I may be able to afford them.
Oh… and celebrity sighting number 2: Lisa Marie Presley!! Let me tell ya… from the way she looked, she made me do a double take.
