Struggles & Triumphs

photo(68)I’m so upset that my blog is getting put on the back burner but working full-time really does take most of the time off your hands.  I can’t believe that I am pretty much half way done with my internship at ICONIX Brand Group.  I’ve fallen into the groove of things and it saddens me to think that all the amazing people and things I have been doing will have to come to an end.

The Professional Intern

As you could tell, I am doing a rather poor job of following through on posting more but I can guarantee I have a good reason!  This semester, I decided to intern full-time for school credit.  It is required for my major to actually graduate and since I cannot afford to pay tuition to do it as a summer class, I took my semester off to pursue a great internship.  I was lucky enough to land my internship at ICONIX Brand Group and become their Public Relations intern.

Summer Reading

Hello Spice Girls & Guys!

Summer can be full of fun things to do such as the beach, internships, events, etc.  I find that sometimes I get so exhausted, that I just want to sit in bed and read a good book.  Now that I’ve decided to take a break from working (at least in person), I have much more time on my hands this summer.

I’ve comprised a list of books that I want to read or re-read this summer.

Life Update: Work, Work, Work!

Life Update

Hello Spice Girls & Guys! I thought it would be nice to give an update on how everything is going!

As I’ve said numerous times, I intern in New York City.  The office is full of kind, hard-working people, and it honestly feels like a family the moment you step in.  My supervisor is kind, understanding, and gives me work that I find both challenging and enjoyable.  I don’t have coffee-run duties or a Devil Wears Prada deal going on.  I have my own desk, my own computer, and even my own email and ID!

They added a new intern and now there is two of us in the office.  It’s nice! It’s like a little girl corner.   I had been doing the social media and updating articles but now I’ve been given more PR tasks, which I am honestly intimidated by.  I love it so far though, I love all the researching and the taking risks I’ve done.  I’m eternally grateful to be given such tasks and have such a great experience so far.

In the midst of all of this, I was let go/ quit at my retail job.  I loved working there but I also felt guilty because I could not give them 100%.  My priorities were in school and my internships.  I will not name the company, but I think you will be able to find out which one it is (rhymes with nap). I just want to write about it to get it off of my chest as it’s been bugging me.

I had been walking out of my internship when I got a call from one of the managers who stated that the head manager wanted to speak to me.  At this point, my stomach had flipped up into my throat, I was getting a bad feeling.  The main manager came onto the phone, asked me how I was, being all sweet and then sweetly told me that they couldn’t do my schedule anymore and I would have to hand in my two weeks.

Now, I have to start the job hunt all over again. It’s tiring and difficult as a college student with a terrible schedule.  I have classes Monday, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.

I still find myself running around and this summer break isn’t just a break anymore. I think I’m finally growing up..and fast.
