Summer Plans

Summer is just around the corner and I don’t know how much longer I can go on. My running through the finish line is more like a slow and painful crawl. The last possible day that I could be on campus is May 3rd, and that day could not come any sooner. I do have a lot of work to finish before then, unfortunately.

In my Spanish class, I am trying to finish with an A but I don’t know if it is possible. I would have to completely slay my final, and that could potentially be very difficult. If I come out with an 88 or 89, I will actually spontaneously combust.

I also only have one test left in my psychology class. My professor has a really cool rule, if my average is an A before the final, I won’t have to take the final. I currently have a 90… I have one more test left before the final. If I don’t royally screw it up, I will be okay because I also turned in some extra credit papers.

I also have about 2 weeks to finish an entire website from scratch. That is going to be the biggest assignment that I have to finish. I just don’t have any creative juices left in my brain. They have been completely wiped out from this school year. I am trying to find something really interesting to write on and about, but it is hard for me to not see it as cliché. My brain has been fighting with me lately, but I will be victorious at all costs.

See you next week.


Internships Hunger Games

Trying to find internships nowadays is ridiculous. I actually feel like Katniss Everdeen trying to fight off all of the Capital tributes. But in this world, I have no Peeta with me. It’s dog eat dog, and I consider myself a Chihuahua.

You have to have experience in order to get an internship that is supposed to provide you with experience. Mobile, Alabama is definitely not the Mecca of internships either. So I have to look in other cities to find an internship.

I’m a college student. I AM BROKE. A.K. A. I HAVE NO MONEY. How will I survive with a full time unpaid internship that also takes up so much time that I can’t get a job to support myself? And in New York City, Seattle, Chicago? There is no possible way I can swing that.

So now I am left with the few paid internships that are crazy competitive. The Disney College Program, which is a semester long internship in Orlando or Anaheim has approximately 20,000 applicants each semester. They accept about 3,000 every season. I have attempted to get accepted twice already. Hopefully third time is the charm, but I deem it unlikely.

Hopefully within the next couple of weeks I can find an internship that will fit me and my budget. Otherwise I am stuck here for the rest of my life.

Stay gold.
