I always complain about not having any friends, but I don’t do anything to try and make friends. I’m pretty outwardly hostile and off-putting in real life. Well, up front, at least. I can get wacky if I’m comfortable.
Also, my only internship (which is from my high school years) I got through a casual email, so I guess I applied that pattern onto everything else I applied for these past three years at college. I never tried really hard to write a good cover letter or statement of purpose. This kind of backfired when it turned out that people actually cared about the quality of my writing, which is actually rather good when I give a damn.
