Ok well inspite of the crazy drama in the fashion world, I still like the actual content of my work and as such, I pretty much work myself to the bone in order to ensure that my internship transcends into some sort of actual employment status.However, when I used the phrase 'dying to succeed', I did not mean it in its literal capacity but a few weeks of second hand smoking later, I came to the realisation that this is actually the case...
My discovery is that in order to be successful in the fashion industry,you need a smidgen of talent, a dash of confidence and the rest is bloody well down to networking yourself silly! So when everyone decides to go for drinks after work,it is literally suicide to refuse to attend.
God forbid you dare to go home and I don't know...sleep? NO NO, you must prioritise and that of course means downing an endless supply of cocktails [no complaints there] BUT also suffering from the cancer fumes that are being blown directly into your lungs!!
I am extremely opposed to the idea of smoking but I am dying to succeed...I just hope and pray that the success part precedes the death!!
