  1. Nice list! Which magazine did you intern with?

  2. Thanks Sosha,
    I guess I have to get on doing some of it now. I interned with Time Out Amsterdam Magazine. Are you a writer?

  3. The combination of Time Out and Amsterdam! Whoa! It can’t get better than that.

    I work at JetWings magazine. That’s the luxury travel in-flight magazine on India’s no. 1 airline, Jet Airways.

    • Yes, it was such a great experience. I haven’t been at a magazine since then but would like to get back in with one. Do you live in India? Does your magazine use freelancers?

      • Hey Neisha,
        Sorry couldn’t reply earlier. Yes, I live in Mumbai, India, and JetWings is always on the lookout for new freelancers. Mail across a few of your best works to and I’ll pass them on to my editor!

  4. I love you list… and now that I’ve turned 33, I’m feeling behind. I’ll be making my own list~ thanks for the inspiration!
