"I got magic and I've got poetry in my fingertips, you know, most of the time, and this includes naps." - Our Lord and Saviour, Charlie Sheen

I took a slight breather from my intensive Charlie Sheen Google searching (that man is insane and therefore, amazing) to research some internship websites that my adventurous, Russian speaking best friend sent me.

The common thread amongst (pinky up!) these interning abroad programs is the ungodly amount they want ME to pay them to basically work for nothing. I've done internships before and I never minded not being paid. BUT if I was unpaid PLUS had to pay upwards of $8,000 for a semester long program, I would pitch a 'Christian Bale on the set of T4' style bitchfit. I believe they called that indentured servitude back in the olden days. (Wait, is that what that term means? Note to self: learn things).

The best website she sent me is called Cool Works. This program gives you access to jobs in cool-as-shit places. Sadly, Nebraska and Kansas have no jobs posted. Thus, my exotic dreams of silos and cow dunged splattered pitchforks shall have to be put on hold. Again.

  1. Wow, they were all around eight grand? I thought some of them (like BUNAC) were more reasonably priced. Could you just go over as a tourist instead and scout for jobs?
