My alarm goes off around 6:50 a.m. on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. I jump out of bed and put myself together for the day that lies ahead. I depart from the house around 8:10 a.m. and usually wage traffic on Interstate 95 for about 20 minutes. I pull into the downtown parking garage around 8:30 a.m. and walk into the agency 20 minutes before I should. I get my desk ready for the day, check my emails, go to the book shelf full of Communication Arts Annuals and pick one to look through. Why do I get there so early to sit and wait for the day to start? Why not just sleep longer and get there when everyone else does? Because I love it. I love the agency environment before the work day begins. It’s quiet and really enjoyable in the morning. Once everyone piles into their cubicles and or offices, they day starts. I usually meet with my supervisor when she gets in and we discuss the projects/copy that needs to be written that day. I start working on assignments and the day flies by. The thing I love most about this internship is the people. I was very intimidated my first few days but the agency welcomed me with open arms. I get to collaborate with a talented pool of people and I couldn’t ask for more!
On days when I am not at the agency, I am usually going to class wishing I was going into work. I’m not much of a morning person but I love getting up for the internship. I never know what I will be working on so every day is different. It’s been a great experience thus far. I love what I do and I want to make a career out of copywriting. I feel that with perseverance, dedication, and the drive I can achieve anything.
When I walk across that stage on April 27th and receive my Bachelor’s, I will smile and know that I am in a great place in my life. A new chapter awaits.
