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.

Shameless thing is, if you were being paid for this, we'd all be cursing your luck. Sueda it'll all be fine. There are so man strangers waiting for you to unearth their lives on FB!

I wish I were being paid for this. I would stick on for like a month or two, and then buy myself an IPod and a hard drive.

Haha. Hard Drive :D
