Being one of two interns at the entire company, I’ll admit I expected myself to be a lot more busy. I pictured that I would have urgent tasks to do all the time, sometimes finding them hard to juggle. But that hasn’t been the case! There are days that I have a lot to do but the work is presented one after another, so it’s almost never a balancing act. Some days are so slow that I just do busy work around the office. I can’t tell if I’m happy about it or not; on one hand this is helpful for me to ease into a professional environment and learn at my own pace as I go. On the other hand, I want my work to be more valuable and go towards something of substance. I see the work that my roommates are doing in their own internships, and it’s a notable difference. I’m thankful and I’m learning, but I do wish it was more. Hopefully changes to come in the latter half of the internship!
