Friday Entertainment

Happy Friday everyone!
I thought as a Friday treat I would provide a little entertainment to get you through the rest of the day.
Check out "Spotted: DC Summer Intern," a blog dedicated to absurd and confused summer interns floating around the District acting as if they "know" what is going on in the city...such a great blog!
If you have any hilarious intern stories, submit them;

Here are my personal intern style rules;
If not followed, be prepared to be made fun of...

1. Don't flaunt your intern badge.
Yes, it's cool...we know. But EVERYONE has one. Take if off in the office and especially when frequenting DC bars.

2. Flip-flops are a no-no
It is a MUST to bring comfortable flats as to not murder your feet; however the sandals noise echoing through the Senate halls is a definite no-no.
Advice; invest in good heels, and good flats...and if you must wear sandals, opt for nice sandals. (no Rainbows, Havanas, or especially anything you would wear in a dorm shower)

3. Metro Etiquette
Learn it. Live it.
Do not block doors.
Do not stand on the left hand side of the escalator.
And above all: MOVE.

4. Dress for Success
Do you really think you will get a job wearing duds to hit the town in? No.
Watch the cleavage, watch skirt/dress length.
Don't over-do Lily Pulitzer; you will look like a flower pot.
And also, remember; DC is HOT in the summer- prepare appropriately.

5. Shut Up
Seriously, everyone can drink. Seriously, everyone can hook up with someone G&T or Smith's not a skill ladies, so please DO NOT advertise your sex life, or brag about your "cool" evening plans- no one cares.
Also, DC is a reporter town...reporters are always looking to find "that" intern who will make a fool of themselves.

6. R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Seriously, you are an intern...respect that fact and respect your superiors.
