Two Days, and Counting

It's Wednesday, and this is the day of three things:

1, I have discovered that I have a thing for the Discovery Channel's "A Haunting" documentaries
2, Tomorrow is my Spanish final, which I should be studying for, and
3, My internship with ______, the fashion public relations firm begins in two days.

My other internship, the one with the Sonoma County Museum, under the Historians and Exhibitions Curator has been underway for about a month now. Yesterday he sent me on what I deemed a "mission" to the library to do some research. My research included searching through microfilms - newspapers on film. If I only had a pair of thick rimmed glasses with me, I could have fulfilled a "curator" fantasy. (!)

I leave for Texas in a little over two weeks, for Fermin's cousins wedding. I decided that I wanted to go "full southern". I planned to wear a cotton/linen light colored dress, open toes heels, and a large, wide brimmed hat. Perfection!


So, for the past week or two I have been on the hunt for "the dress". I found it. And it was stained. So, then I thought I found a second one, but it was cream colored (although it did have red rosebuds, and tiny laced hem, and a double V neck.... and it was snug and adorable), so I had to pass on it. Ironically however, the one that I did settle on, doesn't have cream in it, but white.
The dress is white scooped neck, and a high waisted fully black shirt. But my wide brimmed hat is nowhere to be found.
Am I asking for too much?!

While I am looking forward to my PR internship, I am a little apprehensive. I had started summer school hoping to make friends. Fermin encouraged me that I would, promising that a common interest in class would provide friendship easily. However, what I got was a mixutre of middle aged respect demanding women, cocky men, immature 16-19 year olds, and, three bitches. Two of which I got paired with. To make the 6 weeks short, no friends.

I have semi-met the two other interns at the PR firm, and since I haven't actually spoken to them, I won't judge them. But, I'm hopeing that this internship will provide some friends...perhaps even fashion forward ones!

Also, the whole debate on what to wear my first day.
