Its been forever since I've written a blog post, but I've just been so busy. Most of last semester was focused on finishing my 30 page senior seminar paper and making it at least quasi-decent. (I got a B!) It'll suffice to say that my junior year of college was horrendous. I out way too much on my plate and it got out of hand. Along with 18 school credit hours and ten school job hours, I was also working almost 40 hours a week at the local Wal-Mart. It was rough, but I made it.
This summer has been all about recuperating, instead of working ungodly hours, I found an internship that I love (more on that later). I have been reading for pleasure a lot, and I've definitely been sleeping more normal hours.
This year I'm hoping things will be better, i'm making some interesting changes.
In 3 days soccer season starts, I was goaded into playing by one of my friends when
I told her I was looking for something different to do my senior year. I haven't played in about 4 years so we'll see how it goes. I have two internships, one that i'll be finishing up this year and one that will start next semester.
The internship that I started in June is for a candidate for Illinois State Senate called Linda Little. Basically we've been knocking on doors and talking to people about her, throwing out candy/ bracelets at parades and just promoting her in general. She's a lovely lady and I'm glad that I have had the opportunity to work for her.
(I will also be Election judging the election that she is hoping to win which coincidentally is also my 21st birthday)
The second internship i'll be doing is working for a circuit judge in the town I go to school in. I am really excited about this one because I'm hoping to see inside the legal world and according to my friend Kayla (who set me up with this internship) you go to court most days that you work there. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity as well because its really hard to find legal-based internships for Pre - Law students
I am so excited for this school year to start and for me to start all of my new journeys.
Are you ready for school to start? What activities do you participate in?
Well I've rambled on enough for one blog.
