Hashtag-Blessed

...that hopeless feeling you get when you want SO BADLY to be done with your degree to get a job in the field that you love so you can stop depending on your parents for everything...

Thaaaat's me. A 23-year-old loser with a BA working on her MS while balancing two unpaid internships living in an expensive city with expensive travel costs who can't even pay for anything herself. I think I tricked myself into thinking this would benefit my future, but all I can see right now is how much of an overprivileged child I appear to be to the rest of the world.

Well, enough grouching. I'm incredibly hashtag-blessed to have received two incredible internships at the National Archives II and Magnum Photos.

So, I've moved to Baltimore (because I really did not want to live close to DC) and I started at NARA last week as a Processing Intern, where I will be working on the "Patent Label Project" which is basically the coolest thing ever if you have any interest in the history of American consumerism/commercialism. So far, I've been working on the 1933 patent labels and I've seen original box/label designs for Wheaties, Milkbone, Coca-Cola, Kleenex, ACME, Bisquick... the list goes on. And this is only in the 7 or 8 boxes I've worked with so far! I'm basically importing the information from these files into a database and scanning whatever seems culturally relevant so records of these patents can be made available through NARA's online catalog, OPA. I also have a photo album up of all the neat labels I've seen so far.

And then I'll be starting my internship with Magnum Photos in a week and a half. I've never been to New York City, so that will be an experience in itself. I'll be working in their photo archives, which is basically what I want to be doing career-wise, so I'm ecstatic. It's twice a week, so I'll be commuting there and staying overnight with a friend in Queens.

So, yeah. My world has been rocked within the past few weeks and I'm seemingly okay with it. I won't be doing much with photography while I'm here (and I miss my job with the newspaper so much!) but I am planning on going to a walking tour in October to see/learn more about Baltimore's amazing graffiti artists, which is something I did while I was in London and looooved it.

Hope that was enough of an update for now, maybe another update will come after my first few weeks at Magnum.
