Summer Happenings

Saturday, March 12, 2011

I realized the other day, that my summer is going to be packed. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just means I am going to have a busy summer with very little down time. Between taking 3 online courses (so I can graduate on time), working at an internship (hopefully!), working at Day Camp, and helping my sister finish planning and actually have her wedding, lets just say I've got a LOT to do! With the exception of taking classes, I am very excited about this summer and am eagerly awaiting all of the activities I've got planned.

An internship, means I will get to have more hands-on experience in Design which is MUCH needed right now. Over the last year, I have come to really feel official in this work and actually feel like I know what I'm doing now. It's an incredible yet scary feeling seeing as how this will be my life in a little over a year! (Yikes!) I come to love it more and more each day though, and I'm really excited to get some in-field experience.
  • Speaking of which, I got a Furniture Market job! This is HUGE in the design world. This is where all major Designers, furniture companies, etc come together in one place. Huge I tell you, HUGE! I've never worked market before, and I'm very excited to have this opportunity.
  • I also am working on getting an internship with Baker Furniture next semester! My teacher Mrs. Megliola recommended me for the position and I can't even explain in words how big of an opportunity this is! This internship could potentially help me achieve up to 6 credits in school, and seeing as how Baker is one of the biggest furniture companies out there- this would be an AMAZING opportunity and could really jump start my career. I have an interview April 19th so please, please, PLEASE, keep me in your prayers! I really need this job!
I'm also very excited to work at Day Camp again this year. I've been promoted to Director of Early Childhood Development and am really excited for what this summer holds. I love being with the kids, hanging out with our staff, and really enjoy working there everyday. The job can have long days, but I love it. There's nothing better than working somewhere that you enjoy and connect with the staff. It's great!

And the biggest event of my summer is Erin's Wedding! As the maid of honor, and sister of the bride, I have quite a few duties on my plate. One of my biggest ones is her bachelorette party. I've never thrown one before so any ideas are welcome! It's kind of weird that she's getting married, but I am so happy for her and Stephen. They will make a wonderful family and I am blessed to call them my family. And hey, who doesn't love helping plan a wedding!

Until summer however, I have a last few things to tie up on my end so everything will run smoothly. And just for my sanity and benefit, I will share with you my list. (Please feel free to skip this portion)
  • Contact schools and get information on summer courses
  • Get summer classes approved by HPU
  • Apply for summer courses
  • Find a summer internship
  • Interview for and hopefully finalize internship with Baker
  • Complete this semester's classes (hopefully with all A's!)
  • Finalize Day Camp plans/supplies
  • Get bridesmaid dress altered and buy shoes for the wedding

So there you have it, my summer happenings. Please keep me in your prayers about these internship possibilities. I would really appreciate it!
