And quite incredible: I’ve got a cool traineeship

Fifteen minutes ago I wrote that I got sacked before I had even started on my new job. While I was style typing the post, I got a phone call from one of the leading Austrian news magazines – I got admitted to their trainee programme as a news editor!!! I won’t earn anything, yet it lasts only six weeks, and there is PLENTY to learn. I had applied with only a vague hope that they’d accept me, mainly because I am already 33, yet wrote a very honest (my boyfriend would call it dramatic) letter of application, in which I discussed that very issue. It’s starting on the 8th of October – isn’t that tremendously cool???
