New beginnings

Last week I said school has been pretty light so far…I guess I spoke too soon.
Although I love my classes, this week I started USG and my internship — add that on top of my classes, other organizations, work and maintaing my social life — well, things get tricky. However, I think that the long and arduous week is due to lack of sleep. I’ve got an average of six hours each night, which is no good. If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my college career is that life is A LOT easier with more than seven hours of good rest. So it’s time to kick my bad sleeping habits back to the curb.

On a happier note, as I mentioned, I started my new internship this week! I have held two previous internships before — one doing social media and another doing radio promotions — but this one is more public relations/media intensive.
I’m interning at Christopher Foltz Collaborative, L3C, which is a social enterprise firm. Social enterprise means that it applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environment well being, rather than maximizing profits for shareholders (according to Wikipedia ;) ). We primarily do public relations and marketing for local companies as well as implementing give-back models for them. I am working on some new and exciting projects for the company so I’m super pumped to be on board there.
My first week went very well. The atmosphere is very Google-like. In case you didn’t know, Google is known for a very relaxed atmosphere, which allows tons of innovation. There’s even a dog in the office! The atmosphere is a lot different than other internships I have held, but in an exciting way. I cannot wait to see all of the knowledge I gain and the experiences I have during my time there this semester.
Although time and stress get tough, I am very blessed to be able to have all of these experiences in my life. I mean, that’s what college is for, right? To work your butt off so you can succeed after graduation! So with that in mind, I know with patience and SLEEP, I can make my last year at college THE BEST.
Until next time…
Mike : )
