Farewell from Katy the Intern =(

So today is a sad day for me because it's my final day as an intern here with Derek and Romaine.  I wish I could stay here and be a part of the DNR show, but unfortunately all good things must come to an end.

I learned wayyyy more than I ever expected to on my first day here back in January.  Not only did I learn a multitude of things regarding the logistics of working on a radio show, I also learned a lot about sexuality, politics, and celebrity gossip!  I got to work on the Alan Ball Iconography and True Blood special which was extremely exciting because not every intern gets to work on projects as big as those and when I hear someone talk about it, I can proudly say that I was a part of that.

I got to meet sooooo many awesome people!  From porn stars to comedians to drag queens, I was introduced to such a unique and exciting conglomeration of celebrities.  My favorite will always be Hedda Lettuce even though she yelled at me last week to get her coffee!!  (It was actually hilarious)  Not to mention, I was surrounded by so many sexy men and even a ton of equally sexy women!  That was a total bonus ;)

More importantly, I established such an amazing bond with everyone here.  I'll always have a special place in my heart for Derek, Romaine, Amber, Katie, iShaq, and Chanel.  I'm really going to miss working with everybody here because this didn't feel like work at all; it was more like doing/learning really cool things under the guidance of some really incredible mentors =)

While it SUCKS (and not in a good way =P) that I won't be here with Derek and Romaine, they won't have time to forget about me because starting next week, I'll be back and right down the hall because I got a job call screening for the metal journalist legend Eddie Trunk on Monday nights!!!  This internship really opened up SOOOO many doors full of opportunity and I am seriously so lucky and blessed to have been chosen to be a part of this!!

I'm so glad that when I got the call about being an intern here at Sirius XM, I chose Derek and Romaine.  I didn't know who they were or what I was getting into, but once I heard the words "really raunchy and dirty" I knew that's the show I wanted to work with!  I wouldn't change a thing about the choices I made because in the end I know that this was the right one.

So I sadly say "goodbye" to all of you listeners and tonight I will give an even sadder goodbye to everyone here at Derek and Romaine =(
