Two Tiny Notes

Miss me yet? 😉 Just wanted to pop in with two bits of news.


1) You can get your EPF fix over at Making Sense of Cents today. Michelle published a guest post I wrote (pre-FinCon14 freak-out) on a budget-related method of motivating myself to earn side income in my funemployment. For September, I’m already up to ‘car gas.’ Leave me a comment over on Making Sense of Cents to let me know what you think of my idea!


2) I just learned I have an internship interview in a field I’m very interested in so please wish me luck! Even though I’m not job-searching, I seem to be job-applying. I’ve applied for three internships, a fellowship, a part-time contract job, and two full-time jobs in the past six weeks. Most of those positions would start in the spring or summer, though, and this internship is for the fall so I’m extra excited about it.

  1. Wow. You would be extra busy in the fall. What is the kind of those internships you applied for? Goodluck Emily!

      One is an unpaid experiential-type internship. One is part-time at my university. The one I’m interviewing for is at a local private company. Each of them would advance my ‘alternative career’ goals.

      1. Great!I am amazed at how you manage all these things and your time. Goodluck Emily. I hope everything goes well. More updates on this soon, I guess.

      Thank you. 🙂 It’s scheduled for next week.

  3. Good luck! It’s hard to get an internship, but finding the perfect one is a great feeling. 🙂 I’m sure you’ll do fine.

      I generally don’t take these sorts of things personally if I don’t get them – I just figure someone else was better suited. But if I do get it, amazing!
