Midpoint Evaluation time.
Let me say, this has been a really good internship thus far. When I think of all the amazing opportunities I’ve had – and gotten PAID to for – I know I’m extremely lucky. Plus, my work environment and my fellow interns are basically the bomb – lunch breaks are always a blast!
I really can’t believe it’s been almost seven weeks… and I have only about five left to go. If this could be my job, I would literally be set for life!
This doesn’t mean that this job hasn’t been without its challenges. There have definitely been some not so awesome parts of the internship, but I’ve realized they’re things I’m grudgingly glad they did happened, since it definitely taught me something or at least, eventually didn’t suck as much as I thought it did. They’re also issues I know I’ll have to face when I get out into the “real world” so I might as well man up and start figuring out how I can best deal with them, because they’re not going to go away.
So, to any future interns out there, here’s a bit of advice. Always keep your attitude in check. Having restrictions on how to best do a job is a pretty good reason to feel belligerent, but even that doesn’t mean you should. As long as you can accept your limitations and still do your best, that is the key to success. The attitude and perspective is EVERYTHING, no matter who you are or where you are.
That’s my Deep Conclusion to this entry. Next few entries, I’ll get to the good stuff – I will be posting some pics that I’ve taken over the past few weeks!
