Intern Diaries: Week 1 & 2

It's been an interesting week of ups and downs, that's for sure. 

The Snowpocalypse and alone would have made for an interesting week, but it just got weirder from there. My uncle has been in the hospital for two weeks with the doctors continually telling him that they don't know what's wrong. He finally went home last night, though. I caught up with two long, lost friends on Thursday and Friday. I finally finished up Advocare! And that whole Snowpocalypse thing happened. 

But one solid thing has been my internship! This week was odd because I had to leave early on Tuesday because of the snow and didn't go in on Thursday because the club was closed... due to snow. 

But, really, does it get any cuter than this??

But it's been awesome. I'm learning a lot and I've been given a lot of responsibility, which is exactly what I wanted. I couldn't imagine doing an internship where I'm one of 50 interns and have very little input in anything. 

I'm currently in the process of helping plan our huge kick-off party, Kid's Day, Easter activities, and an Open House at our new offices. It's all so much fun and things I'm actually good at so I'm quite content. 

The office also does monthly staff outings and our first one is this Thursday night. I'm strangely excited for it. Mainly because the people are work with are so much fun!

My internship was one of the main reasons why I had a minor major breakdown on Monday night with my mom. My classes were overwhelming. My commute was stressing me out. And I realized that I really had no time to breathe. Then the snow came and class was cancelled Wednesday. And my internship was canceled on Thursday. So I essentially had two full days to get my life in order. God works in weird ways.

I now feel like a new person and I'm caught up on so much stuff. I've also decided to drop one of the classes that is causing me ridiculous amounts of stress. Mother told me to. So I will. 

Long story short... It's been a good two weeks minus the ups and downs and chaos. I just needed some perspective and the giant snow storm definitely gave me that. 

Hope you've all had a great week!
