If any of you read Monica Lewinsky’s essay in Vanity Fair where she complains about, you know, being Monica Lewinsky, you’re kinda sick of White House interns too. But Jesus, this poor woman! Provided she one day finds amazing professional success, this will be a hilarious story. Until then, everyone’s going to talk about her behind her back. FOR SURE.
On my first day at a very big news organization, I started to feel really, really ill. If I stood up, I had to sit right back down for fear of falling over. And by 4pm, I had no choice but to go to my brand new boss and say I’d magically scheduled a doctor’s appointment for my first day of work. It was that, or collapse in the newsroom. I got into see a doctor that afternoon, because Kaiser really isn’t that bad, and they did blood-work and it turned out, I was crazy anemic and they were amazed I was upright. My illness was legit! Also, you can’t only eat cupcakes and espresso.
Your first day disasters in the comments, please.
