Not Just a Summer Fling


Look, I’m not saying I didn’t enjoy myself. I did. I’m not saying that I don’t value the experience. I do. However, even after fitting this internship to my exact needs, or what I thought they were, I’ve discovered that I want to do something entirely different. I planned my summer with the thought that it would help me reach three goals; to combine my passion for horses with my need for a job, to build my own media marketing firm and to complete my degree one semester early. Two of those goals have changed, care to guess which? I’m not saying I didn’t learn anything. I learned plenty. I learned enough about myself to realize that I need something different. You can make your internship work for you, even in ways you would never imagine.
