Day in the Life of Candy
Hi, fellow Candy girls! Micah here from the Council of Cool 8 â€“ ah, but this isnâ€™t a post about Council duties. Iâ€™m going to rave about my first week as a Candy intern! =D Yep, and itâ€™s really been a blast! Even though I only report in the afternoons (Iâ€™ve got class in the morning, ugh!), I surely donâ€™t miss out on the
Hereâ€™s how my week looked like:
Monday â€“ There wasnâ€™t much to do because all the staff computers were away for maintenance, so I wiped and sorted stuff to be moved (soon!) to the new Candy HQ.
Tuesday â€“ Ate Angel and Ate Marla brought me along on a situation shoot â€“ that means we shot those photos that accompany articles.
Wednesday â€“ I got to sit in at the staffâ€™s editorial meeting, where they brainstorm and decide on the articles that will come out in the next issue weâ€™re preparing. I also got to meet Amanda and Jenny, the gal pals who won the Clean and Clear contest and are now interning at Candy for 15 days as their prize!
Thursday â€“ Amanda, Jenny and I assisted Ate Margaux in a fashion shoot, and Ate Macy and Ate Roch in a simultaneous Candymag.com shoot. It was a pretty long day, but it was fun!
Today, Friday â€“ I tagged along with Ate Marla and Ate Macy on a Candy Bites shoot. Letâ€™s just say it was a tasty experience! Oh, and guess what â€“ Miggy Chavez was sitting right beside me half an hour ago! (Cue your jealous squeals! Haha!) Finally, the monthly Council meeting is in, let’s see, 30 minutes! Whew, what a fab Friday!
Want to know other things I love about interning with Candy?
1. My bosses, our dear Candy editors, are such fantastic women â€“ oh but you already knew that!
2. Iâ€™m not a call center agent or a barista here! The staff make sure I get a great learning experience out of my practicum.
3. When nature calls, I enter a door marked Babes! Who knew a bathroom door could be such a picker-upper? ;p (The gentsâ€™ room is marked Hunks!)
4. When Iâ€™m sent on errands around the office, I pass by the desks of all the Summit editors whose names Iâ€™ve just until now been seeing in the magazines! I get a bit starstruck! Haha.
But what I love most of all is that Iâ€™m a Candy intern, period. As a COC 8 member and an intern, Iâ€™m proud to be working with and for a magazine that I believe in, that I love (that we love!). That makes my Candy duties a gazillion times more worthwhile!
So, dearies, I hope you are all having a blast this summer, whether youâ€™re doing your practicum, attending summer class, catching up with old friends, or just getting R&R. Hmm, so which one is it? Do comment to let us know what youâ€™re currently up to! =)
A Candy girl through and through,

I love getting pampered and dolled up just as much as the next girl but as of late, I haven't had much time to do so. I think the last time I really got to relax and get my nails...
