I just finished up my third week of my internship at ModCloth. It is really exciting to be working at such a fantastic company. At the same time, however, it can be a drag. Staring at a computer for the majority of 7-8 hours is not fun, and I’m sure it’s taking a toll on my eyes. Also, my shy, introverted personality makes it difficult for me to interact with the people I work with, and that’s annoying. I’m glad though that I’m using my skills I learned in school on projects that will be seen by thousands, if not, millions of girls around the world. I have already learned quite a bit; things like sticking to your ethics and values, and knowing art and design history is really important.
I have been doing pretty much nothing aside from my internship. When I arrive back home everyday, I’m too exhausted to do anything. I just take a shower, eat, and video chat with Mark. I still have to catch up everything else I have been wanting to do, but I don’t know when that will happen. It has been 1 month since Mark and I have seen each other, and it will be another month and 18 days until we see each other again. Being in a long distance relationship is rough, especially for an irrational, over-thinking, insecure girl who can be all kinds of emotional.
It’s really nice not having to juggle so many different things in life. So, I’m just trying to take things easy right now.
