Exciting Announcement

Holy smokers, it’s almost been one month since I’ve posted.  I had the best intentions of posting at least once a week, but that obviously did not happen.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m preparing to graduate in May and then I have an internship to complete for the summer.  Finding an internship is hard work.  Finding an internship that appeals to me is even harder.  So that’s what I’ve been doing the past month…desperately  searching for an internship that I truly wanted.  I applied to internships in Florida, Green Bay (because I want to meet all the Packer players ;-) ), Superior WI, and Duluth MN.  Well after a few months of being incredibly annoying persistent, I have finally found an internship!  I will be interning underneath the Wellness Coordinator at a company in Duluth MN.  Corporate wellness is exactly what I want to do with my degree so this is a dream come true for me.

The company I’m interning at recently put in a half court gym, golf simulator, cardio equipment, free weights, and weight machines.  It’s about 4000 square feet.  I will be teaching classes, assisting in wellness programs/challenges, helping educate on nutrition and fitness, and really anything else they ask me.  One last thing that just puts the icing on the cake…..it’s a PAID internship!  Oh. My. God.  Finding an internship that I want to do and is paid basically doesn’t happen around here.  Duluth isn’t that big of a town and the majority of internships do not pay.  But I was quite lucky to score this new gig.  As soon as I was offered the job, I called my mom and wanted to cry.  I finally felt like all my hard work was paying off.

So I don’t have any pictures to share today, I just had to get that announcement off my chest.  Maybe sometime in the next few months I’ll come up with a regular schedule of posting.  Until then, it will be random :-)

P.S., Tomorrow I get to head to Florida to go see my parents!  Cannot wait to get out of this COLD town!

Did you complete an internship for college?  What was the one most important thing you took away from the internship?  Do you have any exciting news to share?
