You all thought I had disappeared from the blogosphere… tricked you! Just took a break for a wee bit there. Between graduating, continuing the internship search, starting new jobs, weddings, etc. it had been a hectic last couple of weeks. But now I’m back on track and ready to rock and roll. Here’s what you missed:
Graduation: I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in May from Eastern Illinois University with a major in Public Relations and minor in Health Communication and managed to do it in three years. Phew! Talk about exhausting. Lucky for me, my family and best friend made it down for the weekend and it was a great last weekend in Charleston. Oh how I am going to miss it. My nephew napped through the whole thing and would not take off his sunglasses for pictures or smile… caught you stinkbug!
Internships: I am fortunate to have two internships this summer, both of which are semi-local. First, I am the new Income Development Intern for the American Cancer Society in Batavia, which is exciting because this organization has been a part of our family for years. Secondly, I am honored to have the title of Communication and Public Relations Intern for the John G. Shedd Aquarium in downtown Chicago, which has always been a favorite landmark of mine.
Studying Abroad: The ball has been rolling on my trip to Prague for a few months, but is now starting to pick up speed! My visa application has been sent a couple weeks ago, all my documents are sent to ISA and the family has begun booking plane tickets. My itinerary is amazing, and I’m anxiously awaiting my class schedule and roommate assignment. So many exciting events and travels in the next few months. I cannot wait. Until then, there will be lots of preparation including becoming best friends with this guy...
That’s the Readers Digest version of what I have been up to for the past two months, but now that I’m almost settled into my new commute and schedule(s), I’ll bloggy blog more often. Promise! There is also so much more to be told about my adventures in the city and my tentative travel plans, so stay tuned. P.s. t-minus 2 hours until my 21st birthday. Let the celebration begin!
