My internship & school

I probably haven't talked a lot about my internship on here, and that might be good. I'm not going to say where I am interning on here (but if you're friends with me on Facebook, you know). But there is a lot I'd like to say about what I've experienced in the last five months.
  • I've met some of the strongest and most amazing women ever! My internship is for a woman's cancer organization and my job is to interview survivors about their experience. Some young, some old, but all with the same amazing attitude and desire to live!!! They have given me hope and new zest for life that I may not have had without this experience.
  • I'm becoming a better writer. After each interview, I write a profile on the person and for the last few months I've had some help but now I'm on my own and getting to improve my writing skills.
  • I'm learning my way around Columbus a little better. I know this might sound dumb, but I don't go "downtown" that often because I always get lost (thank goodness for the GPS) but I'm starting to learn where things are and how to get home without needing directions.
As for school, that is also going really well. I got an A- in my writing class and I have my final for Spanish coming up. My tutor went out of town for 90% of the time I've been in this class so I've kinda been on my own, I just hope I pass with at least a B or C. I can't get any lower than that....I'm hoping I won't need to worry about a grade that low! I am just happy that for once things are going right, I'm doing well in school, there are lots of amazing people supporting me and in 3 months (OMG really!!!!) I'll be holding a diploma in my hands, probably screaming and crying too :)
