I Know the Sun Must Set to Rise

“She has been feeling it for awhile now — that sense of awakening. There is a gentle rage inside her, and it is getting stronger by the day. She will hold it close to he — she will nurture it and let it grow. She won’t let anyone take it away from her. It is her rocket fuel and finally, she is going places. She can feel it down to her very core — this is her time. She will not only climb mountains — she will move them too”

~Lang Leav, Her Time

If you’ve been following me on twitter, you probably saw the wonderful news that I’ve waited months to receive: I got the internship I mentioned in my last post.

I went in not really knowing what to expect. The secretary sat me down in my interviewer’s office where I wasn’t asked that many questions. In fact, the only question I was asked was “tell me about yourself”. So I did just that and I told him what I was used to and I explained to him how flexible I was with my work environment. We then struck up a conversation about schools and we talked about my school and stuff.

I left out of there feeling so-so about it. I was supposed to hear about on Wednesday night but it came and went and I lost hope.

But this morning I woke up to the best news I’ve gotten all year. I was so excited that I woke up my stlll-sleeping brother to tell him the news. Luckily he didn’t mind.

Anyway, next week I’ll go in to fill out some paperwork and get an idea of the schedule. And then I’ll start the following week. I’m super excited!

But I just want to thank all of the readers of this blog for their support and encouragement. It means more than you’ll ever know.

That’s all for now. I’ll write back on either Monday or Tuesday to talk about my birthday (which is this Monday, the 29th).

P.S. – I sort of got behind with return comments and I eneded up stopping after returning some of them before returning the rest right before this post. Sorry about that. ?

    Major congrats to you for scoring that internship. Despite the number of rejects you got, I really applaud you for not giving up and keep applying for more openings. Hope you’ll learn a lot in your internship and take advantage of every opportunity you can – even if it’s out of your intended job position. This sounds like a perfect birthday gift to you! With that said, happy birthday!
