It's never too late to drop out.

This is absolutely uncanny. I'm a 20-year-old burned out intern sitting at work checking my RSS feeds. It's almost like you wrote this one just for me.

I still think there's some overlap in A and B.

This one rocks!!!

Chaz said...

scavinger - It's not overlap; that's how to avoid the burnout. gotta find a way to relax at the end of the day, after all ...

Note: I am neither A nor B.

Very good work, congrats!

I live in Argentina (can you point it on a map? :P) and I'd like to get your authorization for using some of your "draws" in my blog.

Thanks, bye!

Jeremy said...

I won't burn out as an intern. I'll burn out trying to work an entry-level job while taking six classes, starting a campus club, and producing two campus TV shows.

Yeah. That should do the trick.

So, so true. Damn those lucky stoners.

1988 Yellostone N.P. fires?

Speaking as a 21 year old intern, who just quit her 'job' two weeks ago because she had gotten so stressed out she couldn't sleep without the help of sleeping pills and had managed to drop 10 lbs in one week....

I concur!

I'm now working as a pet sitter/dog walker and while I'm getting small pay check (still better than the zilch I was getting as an intern) and working long (but incredibly flexible) hours - I've never been happier! I was working towards being a graphic designer and no one is very happy with me suddenly giving that up to spend my days with dogs - but dogs are always happy to see you, they won't get mad if you're late, lots of sun and exercise. I'm not giving up this job for anything!

there are also those of us in grad school who are burnt out before we even get to the internship. I feel like this card needs to be 3-D to express the exponential effect of 5 years of grad school before entering internship year.

Myiuki said...

I think i was born in the wrong generation then: i'm hitting the "intern" category, not the "stoner"

40 and jaded said...

I was 20 in 1988, and if I had known then what I know now... I would have picked a more useful major. I would have been bored to tears, but maybe I wouldn't have spent the years until I got married in poverty.
