This is my third week on my internship and I have realized that I have yet to write about it. Maybe because I think that it’s really not that interesting. All I am doing for now is translate manuals and company brochures. At first I didn’t know if it was racism, because I am Spanish speaking, but now I’m kind of over it.
They could have me doing other things I suppose, since I am going to school to be an office professional not a translate, but that’s neither here or there. I only go two times a week and its only for seven hours. Its super easy so that’s mainly why I don’t really complain…
The thing is that it does get really repetitive. At the same time I tell my self that they’re feeling me out to see what I can do? I don’t know. Sometimes I don’t want to go since its 40 mins away and I don’t have a job to pay for gas, but its one of those things where you have to just struggle through it and take it until the end. If I don’t then all this time will have been wasted. Plus I think that I only need about 3 or 4 months of this left so its not that bad, and the people that work there are really nice.
I guess I’m just being a first world basic complaining bitch.
Life is rolling on fast, January is almost over, the year is already flying by.
I start my internship this upcoming Tuesday. (Yes, I got it). I am excited. I will be interning for a non-profit organization that helps people with autism find jobs and teach them how to work with others.
I’ve always wondered what it was like to work for a non-profit organization. Now I have this opportunity to learn and get experience from all these wonderful humans.
I will working in the marketing and resource department, and once in a while help out payroll and Human Resources. I’m in the administrative clerical field so basically anything related to office work is what I will be doing.
I can’t wait to start, although the drive is a little long and I’m not getting paid for any of this, the experience should be more than enough. I also think I was placed there for a reason. I’m ready to learn as much as I can, not just for work, but about life and people.
Pretty soon I will have my certificate of completion and I will be working. Life is moving extremely fast and I am just noticing this as I am typing. Originally I just wanted to talk about my internship, but now as I think about it, everything is moving along, fast.
I have to be completely honest by saying that I almost didn’t even go. I was really nervous and a little upset that it was so far away. Not to mention I was sick, so the whole drive over I was just in a bad mood with myself.
I even debated on weather I should just tell my teacher that I wouldn’t be able to make it because I was too sick. But instead I talked myself into just biting the bullet and just winging the interview just for the experience, then maybe after telling my teacher to send me somewhere closer.
To my surprise though, I really liked the place and the interviewer. She was very nice and seemed to really like me and my experience. I also liked the position. The place is a non-profit, I will be working under her supervision in the marketing and service department for the business doing clerical and administrative things.
I don’t know yet if I have the internship job, she still has to go over the applicants resumes and then she will inform our teacher, but I do hope that I get it. At first I really didn’t even want to go, but in the end now I want that internship.
It was a feeling or a sense of belonging. As though that is where I should be, that is where the universe wants me to be. In other words it just felt right.
