Hello, all! Today I took a large leap into adulthood and started my first day of office life. I started my summer internship head on today, and learned a lot already.
First of all, I discovered that being early isn’t always a good thing. This morning at about 10 AM I had an unrelated appointment in a different side of Fargo. The appointment was very short, so I had to occupy myself until 11, when the office opened. So, I went to my favorite place in the world, Starbucks, and picked up their newest drink. Afterwards, I decided just to drive. I had about 45 minutes, and knowing me I’ll probably get lost. To my surprise, I found the office quickly without any delay. Even though I was more than proud of my navigation skills this morning, I still had a half hour to spare.
I also learned today that buying groceries isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Knowing that I tend to take on “diva-like” qualities, it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that I really only like buying clothes, shoes, make-up and things having to do with my BlackBerry or computer. You know when you’re a little kid and you beg your mom to let you push the cart, pump the gas and do other “grown up” things? I’ve discovered that once you’re completely obligated to doing these things, they lose almost 100% of their appeal.
I am so excited for this summer. I’m going to be working at a couple different venues, probably finding out things that I never had the opportunity to learn about myself previously. Until the townhouses are opened for move in, I will be living in Livedalen on my own for a couple weeks. Equally exciting!
Day one, done.
