project 12 | February

i love having my years captured month by month and plan to keep up with project 12 this year as i can. it's fun to look back on the details of our year at the end of it, as well as seeing how we change through the photos each month. :)

FEBRUARY


HIGHLIGHTS
February 3 was the internship fair for school. it is basically like a job fair and the internships/interviews are competitive, so it was pretty stressful preparing for the fair. i'm an introvert so networking is not really my area of comfort. ;) it was good to make connections though, and i was able to set up an interview with my first choice for an internship! the interview was on February 28th so now i am just waiting to hear back!

i can't believe we are already 2 months into this semester. this month it felt like everything hit all at once. we had to clean out and move our things out of my grandma's garage because the house is being sold, i had outside meetings to attend for a class project, i had a special presentation outside of class to prepare for, setting up and preparing for my internship interview, 2-3 papers due each week of this month, we had 3 family birthdays, and all of that is on top of a part time job outside of school. so this month really blew by! i was also offered a part time job for the summer at my current internship placement, so that is exciting!

this is the last semester where i will have 5 classes on top of an internship, so i am hoping it's all downhill from here. i plan on taking 2 classes over the summer & i'll be working 2 part time jobs so i will have a Mon-Sat week during the summer. but since i am knocking out some classes during the summer, i will only have 3 classes each semester next year, plus my internship. so it will be a little bit less of a load, although the classes will be more advanced.

i detail all of that out just to explain how life is during this season, this grad program is super intensive. & i want to be able to look back on this semester and see everything that was going on and feel accomplished that i got through it. i know i will learn a lot in this semester, but it is a heavy load! in other news, i get a week off of classes and internship NEXT WEEK so i kinda can't wait for a breather! (and a chance to get ahead on the five papers that are due mid-March!)
