Intern Diaries: Week 7 & 8 & 9

Yeah, I've been slacking. Let's just admit it. I've totally dropped the blogging ball and I'm ashamed. But I'm hoping that this weekend I got my life back in order and I keep up with everything again. Fingers crossed.

One of the many reasons my life has been utter chaos lately is, of course, the internship. It's awesome chaos. I love it. But it's freakin' exhausting. I've almost doubled the amount of time I'm in the office and when I'm not in the office, I'm stressing about the things I need to do when I get there. Or things I can do now. Or things I forgot to do. It's stressful.

Coming back from Spring Break and jumping right back into things was a lot to handle, so that's one of the many reasons I'm so far behind. Note to self: you can't handle taking a week off of life. 

It's crunch time over there (read: 14 days 'til tournament week!) and things have kicked into high gear. It's definitely been a learning experience. As tournament week approaches, I'm planning on blogging more about the things I've learned and advice for future intern-ers.

For now, I'm just trying to keep my head above water and stay on top of things as much as possible. I've been drowning in "member badge hell" as of late, which is nothing particularly exciting. Same with credential packing, which I did last weekend.

Although I did get to do some real event planning yesterday and I've got a crucial meeting tomorrow too. So I'm pumped to get into the guts of what I'm actually there for. Not that I haven't honestly been loving everything I'm doing.

The excitement kicked in last week when construction got fully underway. We have structures. I repeat, we have structures.

Yesterday the walls on this thing went up. It's crazy to see how quickly all of this stuff happens. I'll definitely have more pictures of this for next week's post. There's lots of exciting things happening over here, and I'm pumped to tell you more once things get going!

Hope y'all are having a wonderful Monday!!

xoxo, jgp
