Practicum Paradise!

Hi, fellow Candy girls! Micah here from the Council of Cool 8 – ah, but this isn’t a post about Council duties. I’m going to rave about my first week as a Candy intern! =D Yep, and it’s really been a blast! Even though I only report in the afternoons (I’ve got class in the morning, ugh!), I surely don’t miss out on the work fun!

Here’s how my week looked like:
Monday – There wasn’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 – Ate Angel and Ate Marla brought me along on a situation shoot – that means we shot those photos that accompany articles.
Wednesday – I got to sit in at the staff’s editorial meeting, where they brainstorm and decide on the articles that will come out in the next issue we’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 – Amanda, Jenny and I assisted Ate Margaux in a fashion shoot, and Ate Macy and Ate Roch in a simultaneous shoot. It was a pretty long day, but it was fun!
Today, Friday – I tagged along with Ate Marla and Ate Macy on a Candy Bites shoot. Let’s just say it was a tasty experience! Oh, and guess what – 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 – oh but you already knew that!
2. I’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 gents’ room is marked Hunks!)
4. When I’m sent on errands around the office, I pass by the desks of all the Summit editors whose names I’ve just until now been seeing in the magazines! I get a bit starstruck! Haha.

But what I love most of all is that I’m a Candy intern, period. As a COC 8 member and an intern, I’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 you’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 you’re currently up to! =)

A Candy girl through and through,
Micah =)
