Remember when Michele says this in Romy and Michele's High School Reunion? (Love that movie. Epic.) Well, I think that's what I'm going to say the next time someone asks me what I DO. In this post I said I was learning to handle the "What do you do" question better, but the truth is, it hasn't gotten any easier to answer. Not even after being unemployed for eleven months. ELEVEN. MONTHS.
Last week someone asked me what freelance work I was doing, and I got into a looong explanation about my fashion closet duties at Women's Health. It would have been a hell of a lot easier—and more impressive—if I had just said I was assisting the fashion department. It's just.so.painful. People, stop asking me what I DO! And what I'm UP TO! If you really want to know, just read my freaking blog, man!
I love how even though Romy and Michele wanted to impress everyone at their high school reunion, they still stayed true to themselves. So help me, readers! What should I tell people I DO the next time they ask? Let's just make shit up!
