Well this is my last blog as a summer intern, and I think I might cry! It has been an unbelievable experience that I am so thankful to have been a part of. I finished off the summer strong with Showdown in Virden, and it was amazing. I thank all the participants and am very excited about Showdown next year. As my internship comes to a close I wanted to share a few things I learned over this summer.
is no such thing as a bad question. Everyone has questions so be open to them,
and answer them honestly, because they may not know the answer.
Yaris is one of the best cars to have for internship! Over the summer I
travelled over 6,000 km with my little blue rocket, and it sure showed me that
bigger isn’t always better! My little car got me to all the places I needed to
go, and with pretty good gas mileage too.
out of a suitcase is not that bad. The month of July I was home for 3 days the
whole month, which meant a lot of living out of a suitcase. It is not as bad as
some say it is, but I was definitely happy to sleep in my own bed again.
underestimate a home cooked meal. You do not realize how good a home cooked
meal is until you’ve eaten nothing but take-out for a whole month!
- Do not be afraid to put yourself out there. I was afraid to apply for the internship but figured, the worst thing they could say is no. And looking back I am so happy I did. This has been one of the best summers of my life.
It has been an amazing summer, and I would encourage all youth who fit the criteria to apply. It is an amazing opportunity that you will never forget. I had a great time and thank you to all the wonderful people I met, and to all the people who helped make this summer the best summer of my life!
I hope all is well with everyone, and best of luck to everyone in upcoming shows, and with whatever life may throw at you, from what I have learned this summer Angus people truly are the best people.
