Grown-Up Day

Today was the first day of my internship. I was so nervous, people. I cried last night. Haha. I’m such a scaredy cat. And for absolutely no reason. It went fantastically. I’m working in the education department in a museum about 40 miles away a few days a week. I’m gonna be working on a couple of projects, including digitizing an art education program and designing children’s activities for an exhibit about dinosaurs! Doesn’t that sound¬†ridiculously¬†fun? And my boss seems really nice and excited that I’ll be there.

There are cons. I’ll officially have three jobs during my winter break. I’ll be a paid researcher working for a professor. That job will help me afford rent and food. And I also had to get a second job working at *ugh* walmart in order to pay for the gas I’ll need to get to my unpaid job, which is really the career I want to take. Complicated much? Working for work, basically. But with this economy and my current geographical location, I don’t have much choice.

I am very, very excited though. I think I’ll work well in a museum setting, and I’m really eager to work with the public. GAH. I’m just happy about it. I’ll keep you all updated on how it goes, but as of now, I am very excited to be taking a step to start the rest of my life. Hah.
