It’s the last week of my internship! These past three months have felt like forever—I can’t believe my first day was so long ago. It’s weird that I now know so much about an institution and a profession. I can’t even remember what I was like before I knew about media highlights, clips, and Trendkite! It’s crazy to look back on this experience and see how much I’ve learned. I’m not done yet, though. Tomorrow I’m going to Faulkner Hospital to take photographs of a doctor for a consumer magazine, and then I’m getting lunch with my supervisor. A lot of people have been on vacation on and off for the past two weeks, so August has been a funny time in the office. There have been way fewer shoots happening and the general atmosphere is more relaxed, which is nice. I’ve been working hard to finish my Q&A project, and I’m wrapping up final interviews and getting drafts back to be approved. All my projects are sort of coming to an end, whether I’ve been able to complete them or not. Today I got started on making a tip sheet for the next intern, which was actually pretty fun. It feels like the end but also doesn’t—I imagine it probably won’t feel final until I walk out the door for the last time.
