The First Week
The first week of my internship has flown by and I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot so far. I’ve created a resume and cover letter that I think shows off my skills and creativity, as well as, creating another web site. I had already done most of my hours by doing an internship early with my employer and launching our site on a new template. I was worried about finding another one, I was hoping to do something for a non-profit, but it seems like I’m actually going to be able to rework the site for the woman who adopted us our dog. It’s pretty awesome, she trains and does rescue on the side and while she’s not a non-profit she still helps out a lot of animals so I’m excited.
It can be hard working full time, being a student and being a parent to two elementary age children, but I keep reminding myself that I’m almost at the finish line and it helps that I really do enjoy what I’m learning and doing. I have to remember that even when I feel overwhelmed that creating new sites and actually having people use them and enjoy them makes it worth it.
