Some Good News

This Monday I received a call from my (old) internship. I didn’t answer the first time because I’m scared of phone calls like a cat is scared of a cucumber, but I got in touch with them a little later and they offered me a part time job.

This was some good news, I mean after everything that is going on it’s nice to have something good happen for once right?

Although, I did think about it. It wasn’t and instant yes! Take me now! no, it was more of a well, sure if you guys are busy type of deal. The thing is that the Job (feels weird calling it that now) is about 40 minutes away. Its a drive, but on the bright side there is no traffic at all, never has been and now that many people are at home I doubt there will even be cars on the road but we will see, I don’t want to jinx myself.

Anyways, that was one factor, the drive. Then I started thinking about the pay, would I get paid well? Not sure, not even now that I accepted the job. They told me to think of a number and then we would talk about it when I go in for orientation. I have been researching what the average pay is for what I will be doing, then it will be determined by them if they accept that number or not.

It’s part time for now, only two days out of the week. I still have school the other three so I can’t work those days until I graduate in the beginning of June.

What else was I going to do? Looking for a job right now is kind of hard, specially with my schedule. Maybe this could turn into a full time job, or maybe it’s a stepping stone to the next chapter of my life, where ever that may be.

But I am very grateful that they thought of me and that they even considered hiring me for a part time job. I feel really good about myself, and I love the fact that they really enjoyed having me when I was with them for my internship, even if the internship was very short lived.

First World Basic Bitch

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.intership_dog 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.

Everything Is Moving Along, Fast

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.

Cherish every moment.

Internship Interview

I had my first internship interview today.

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.

Fingers are crossed so hopefully I get it.

Back To The Grind

I’m back home. *cries*

I spent almost two weeks at my boyfriends house for Christmas and New Years. I have to say it was a great vacation, and just like mostly everyone, now its back to the real life.

Coming back home I thought things would feel different. Usually when I am gone for so long things seem to feel off or not just right when I come back, sometimes old things just feel new. But its as if I was only gone for a day. I’m not really sure if that’s just how time flies by now or if I really didn’t miss being home.

Tomorrow I go back to school and on Wednesday I have my first internship interview. I was emailed on my winter break by my teacher notifying me to be ready. The interview is at a nonprofit organization in the next town over. I would have preferred it to be closer since I wont be getting paid for it but I have to remember that I need to do this for the experience.

I have been sick with a fever and some body aches since last Thursday, which has not been fun, and I’m really hopping it all goes away by the time I have my interview. Today I just woke up with a sore throat.

I have to unpack all my things, take a warm shower, buy medicine, and then go shop for some ‘business attire’ since I have to dress Gucci now. (Hello more debt).

Unpacking is so sad. Like, you come back home from having a good time and realize the party is over. The good times are all finished and it all just seems like a dream. Like you woke up and you have to try your best not to forget the small details and all the good moments that happened. Ugh its all so sad. But we can’t dwell on it.

That’s just life isn’t it? Well, back to the grind.
