Intern Diaries: Week 10

As expected, things have gone into hyper speed over here and I like to think I'm handling it well. Although this upcoming week could be a different story. It's advance week, AKA the week before the tournament and things are getting serious. 

It all seemed a little more real yesterday when we hosted our volunteer party! The food was delicious and it was great to meet a lot of our volunteers and mingle a little bit. We also finally got a solid staff photo!

We've also almost completed building everything around the 18th green, and I'm so pumped to see everything start coming together.

That's all the hospitality suites and the expo area. Nothing exciting for a normal person, but way too thrilling for us in the office. It's the little things. 

From these past couple weeks I've definitely learned how to prioritize on my days in the office. Things were so much more relaxed at the beginning of the semester, but now I have to go into my day with a plan and an exact list of things I need to finish before I leave that day. Which is normal for most jobs, I assume, but something I've never really had to do before. 

You have your daily life lists of homework and errands and chores, but most of the time if you don't finish it that day, there's always tomorrow. That's no longer the case at work and I definitely puts the pressure on me, but it's also forced me to be more efficient. 

My final two weeks should be interesting and lord knows the blogs will be all sorts of stressful and excitement but I can't wait to share with y'all! 

What was the most vital thing you learned from your internship/job experiences?
