How so little can change after not being on tumblr for so long.
Last week was one of the best weeks of my life. I got to come home to Chicago after spending 6 weeks in SoCal and see my family and friends. That love felt like nothing else. It was special. However, I had no idea I’d have similar feelings this week.. Intern Week.
So far the experience has been amazing. It’s almost unreal how much time, effort and money this company puts into its interns. There are networking events, tours that most full time employees never get the chance to take, meetings with the company’s senior leaders, etc. It’s all very inspiring, and I want to use that inspiration well.
I’m hoping I can lend my experience to those around me. I believe that to really improve myself I have to grow personally, and I have to help those around me grow. At this point, saying that I’m excited for the future would be an understatement.
I just had my final meeting with one of my bosses. She’s leaving this Friday, but I’m so thankful that I got to meet her. I’ve definitely had some amazing bosses in my life, and she has been one of the best. Our conversation was so amazing in so many different ways. She encouraged me to keep doing what I’m doing, and I definitely will.
I like where my life is heading. I’m working hard at an internship with one of the best companies in the world, I’m meeting amazing new people every day, I have a goal in life. In fact, it’s more than a goal. It’s a promise to myself. A dream that I will reach. Now I just have to focus on being focused ..at work, at school, and at life.
There will be so many distractions this next semester, but I can’t let them sway me. I can’t get weeded out. I won’t. Having the apartment is probably the root cause of all the potential distractions. Hopefully I can make it all work.. prayer, dedication, and support from my family and friends is all I need.
We finally bought a table, and a table goes well with alcohol. Before I begin, I’ll just say that my partner and I are the reigning beer pong champions of ..I guess Riverside, CA ..even though we’re from Chicago.
But anyway, the defining monment occured in game one. We were abut to lose 5 cups to 1 when my roommate hit ALL 5 redempton cups and got us back in the game. Sure enough, I came back it OT and hit 2/3 final cups. We desroyed them. The next team thought they’d make a dent, but we were already on fire. We took them out in almost a single turn. Idk man, we’re just the shit. Don’t let me get started about flip cup though lol
