I wish so bad that I could take this job. *sigh* I totally would if it weren’t for the whole “where would you live” and “what about seeing your friends” part of the deal. I hate money. Well, actually I just hate that it keeps me from taking fun and interesting internships like this one. I would love to just walk around with a camera guy and listen to people tell their stories. Then I’d be able to come back and write about it! So awesome and right up my alley.

Does anyone know anyone who lives in this area that wouldn’t mind having someone take over their couch for a summer? If you do, let me know. 🙂
