I like to stay busy. People always ask me how I balance everything, and all I know is that I have to be juggling ten things at once or I get restless. This past week was no exception. I was on the go from Monday morning to… well… right this minute, a week later. I’m a non-traditional student, and having been in the professional world for a brief stint, I know how important all these experiences and opportunities will be for my professional future. I don’t want to miss a single one. So I don’t get to sleep much, so what? I am loving every minute!
Speaking of opportunities, I was invited to CSU’s day at the Capitol as a representative for the Communication Department. Not only was I honored to have been asked, but I was also super excited for an adult field trip! Downside: we left at 6:30 a.m. I count each one of my 4 hours of sleep as precious, so making me get up at 5 a.m. is just cruel. However, it was well worth the early alarm. We were able to sit in on the proceedings of the day, and met several Representatives and State Senators. We handed out CSU memorabilia, and I made some new buddies.
The rest of my week was filled with going to class, and interning at NPACE. I am somewhat useless as an intern until I learn the programs, so I forced one of the other students to sit down with me and teach me some stuff. I got a pretty good grasp on Final Cut Pro X, and I was able to work InDesign a little, as well. Thank goodness for Tyler! Little does he know he is going to be on my speed dial! He shouldn’t have let me see his smartness!
In conclusion, I leave you with a picture from our trip to the Capitol. We found a pickle on the ground, no where near food or any place that once had food. Just a lonely pickle trying to make his way in the political world.
