Suddenly, there’s a month left

While I was looking at my calendar today, as I often do (I live and die by it, pretty much) I realized that there is only four weeks left at my internship. I was so surprised that lots of thoughts went through my mind at once, such as: “August 7th is four weeks?!” and “I go back to school next month!”

Maryland might have some of the prettiest sunsets I've ever seen.

As I think about what I have coming up in the next four weeks, I just get so excited. Then I reflect on the first half of this summer and I can’t imagine spending it any differently. I’ve been thinking lately how happy I am that I have spent my last summer as a college student at home. There’s plenty of time to live in New York City – or any place that doesn’t have a stocked fridge and free laundry – so why rush it?

Here, I’ve got an amazing internship with valuable experience (I learned how to separate pages of a pdf into different files today! Big things, people) in one of the best cities in the world, particularly for sailing, and I also have all the comforts of home for these last precious few weeks. I just feel so appreciative for my internship and all those I’ve met during it. It has been so hands-on, and I’ve really seen a project through from the ideas phase, to strategy, and next week: execution.

In about six weeks, I’ll return to my lovely State College apartment for 15 weeks. My last 15 weeks as a college student, my final 15 weeks before I become an Adult, however you want to label it, I am ready for it. And let me tell you, I absolutely do not regret my four-day weeks that I signed myself up for. No Friday classes right now feel like a luxury I know I’ll never have again.

Meanwhile, I’ve also had this nagging feeling I need to revisit my resume and update it soon… New (higher!) GPA, adding this internship, and giving making some minor design tweaks.
