Goodbye, Jane

Another women's magazine shut down today. Oy. So I'm praying even harder (to the magazine gods?) that I find myself employed (that is, at a publication that would suit me, not like, Maxim or Playboy, but hey, I'm not that picky) after getting this journalism degree. Oh well. At least I didn't intern for Jane. Maybe being too ditzy to proofread your resume can be a good thing.

Around this time last year, I was running around getting ready to go to Espana. And I think ever since this summer began, I've been missing the place oh so much. The food, the people, the atmosphere, the beach, the siestas! I miss it. Really.

Being at work all day, five days a week, really makes me miss the siestas and just the overall vacation-feel. The United States should implement siestas. How awesome would it be to be able to take off for a few hours to eat and nap? I'd love it. I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one. Add some free ice cream and I'm perfect. Or cocktails. Ice cream and cocktails. PERFECT!

(I wrote this at work, planning to publish it later that day, but of course, I didn't.)
