8:00 am: Damn it! I didn’t hear my alarm ringing – or did he switch it off again? No time to think. Quick shower, no make-up and an apple on the way out.
8:15am: Dilemma! I don‘t know what to wear! Lucky we don‘t have a formal dress code like at Emma’s office, but my favourite blouse is in the laundry and I have already worn that skirt twice in a row. Ok, ok the white dress and black over-knee boots it is.
8:36am: ARRGH! Missed my train. Hate taking the bus.
8:42am: Tweeting how stupid Birmingham buses are and blessing our flexitime office hours. Lucky me.
8:59am: Rushing to the office and trying not to sweat to much. Told Ceri (Managing Director) I‘ll be in from 9am today – bloody alarm. I‘ll stop and get some cupcakes for everyone. Who will then notice my late arrival. Smart me.
09:11am: Ceri has been here since 8am. Feeling guilty. I need a cupcake and tea. Getting tea – does anyone else want?
9:30am: Catching up with everyone. Tweeting from my intern Twitter that I‘m at work and bribing everyone with sweet handmade cupcakes. Fly over my emails, grab a croissant from our free breakfast buffet and get ready to go down to the “Zen Den“ for our morning team briefing.
9:45am: Ceri will be meeting three new potential clients today. One of them does not want social media coverage. Odd. Wow she has amazing tights on. Smexy! That’s smart and sexy. I‘ll start with my diet today. I am serious this time. Phil is so cute.
10:18am: Brief catch up with Ceri. She likes the press release I showed her yesterday. Her edited version is so much better. I feel stupid. Why am I not that good? Barns (CEO and Owner) is coming in from Dubai today. She wants to show him my work before sending it out. Nervous.
10:59am: I love being the only intern. Get all the credits for good work. Re-doing the PR schedule according to new PR release dates. Tori from Sales is giving me amazing ideas for my birthday party next week. I want to pitch her some of my PR ideas before going to Ceri.
11:18am: Just had a massive Google session. I had to put together the business and local journalist list for Brainy Marketing release. Ceri is on the phone all morning. Will just email her my findings.
12 noon: Why is Josie not on MSN? Maybe she is in a meeting. Hope she did not forget our lunch date. I‘ll pop down to her desk and see where she is. I have to tell her about last night. Kinky.
12:22pm: Email back from Ceri telling me to write a draft press release to promote our client’s charity climb and fundraising event. I don‘t know what to write. New clients. Huge project. I can‘t do it. Ok – I‘ll just try my best.
01:14pm: Waiting in ground floor launch to grab lunch with Josie. 30mins break are never enough. Damn it, I forgot to tweet.
01:47pm: Receiving reminder email on office night out today. How could I forget? It’s every two months. Tonight it’s going to be Mexican. I love free food. Makes a little up for the unpaid internship. A little.
2:34pm: Still collating details of local radio, print media and TV to promote other events planed. Barns is back. I can see Ceri in his office. She wants me to start blogging for the company.
4:19pm: Oli comes down to show me Basecamp (online project management software). I like how Ceri involves me in all projects. Taking journalist inquires on the phone was rough earlier. They are mean.
5:10pm: Everyone in the foyer excited about mexican night. Glad I chose this dress and wasn‘t dressed too casual.
6:03pm: No! Last one to arrive at the restaurant. Just could not find it. Blushing.
6:20pm: So much food. My eyes are glowing. Asking Tori if it is really all for free. I am so broke. Barns thanking everyone for their hard work. He looks nothing like a Ferrari driver.
8:17pm: Everyone heading to ‘All Bar One‘ for drinks. Some suggest going to this new club.
9:57pm: Running to catch my train. Want to be at my desk before Ceri tomorrow.
What a lucky PR girl I am.
