This week's Wednesday List is in a slightly different format. It's 60% on video, 40% in text, and 100% shameless. Basically, I've always wanted to get a Summer internship at Entertainment Weekly, my favorite entertainment magazine. Well, the time is coming around for me to start applying, and I figured, "Why not suck up a little bit in the process? Can't hurt, right?" Anyway, if you're an EW reader, you'll really like this. If you aren't an EW reader, well, you probably still will. Watch the video above to check out reasons 1-3, and then click on inside to see reasons 4 and 5! Hope you enjoy!
4. I Can Deal With HateWorking online for the past two years has taught me that people are going to say rude things to you all the time. People feel anonymous and say things that they would never say to your face. Terrible things! At first, this really bothered me, and I would delete those comments, but over time, I've come to love it when people bash an article or video of mine. Not only is it hilarious, but it helps drive up your traffic ranking! My favorite recent comment: "I can't take a grown man seriously who has a bunk bed in his room." HA! Therefore, if I were to write a short piece for EW (which probably wouldn't happen), and all the readers tore it to shreds, I could handle that!
5. I Got SkillzI mean, working in the print industry these days is quickly becoming more like working in the online world. This is my forté! Plus, in a video-streaming society, I ain't too shabby at editing videos or talking to the camera. Working at EW offices and getting to see how EW.com is operated, would be the opportunity of a lifetime.
