They all say your first internship is supposed to teach you about life, and how things will be once you step out.
This is it, I guess. I'm virtually not a student anymore, and even though my first internship is happening pretty late in life, it's here. And it's all and only me.
I wish there was a way for all interns to magically prove to the employers that they are awesome. Like maybe a powerpoint presentation on the things they are willing to do, and ideas. Which does not include writing CDs, or sealing packages that need to be sent.
I don't like all the adjectives synonymous with interns. I don't want to be percieved as a curious little over-ambitious fresher. I'm not. But on the flipside, I know it's not really smart to write off anything experience by a bad or negligible first day. Mine wasn't bad. It was just so.. blah.
I realize what kind of environment I would ideally want to work in. I wish I could get it back, it was perfect when I worked in my first newspaper, as an associate editor. It was an all students team, equal ambition, equal naivete and equal talent. I loved it.
I'm trying to figure out how much more random facebook surfing I can do before I lose my mind.
Thank god I have e books.
