For those of you that don't know, I'm doing my internship at Carlyle Place in Macon. Carlyle Place, you say? Yes. A retirement community. What am I going to do with a Mass Communication degree at a retirement community? Well, I get to work with the Director of Marketing & Sales Department and couldn't be more excited. She emailed me the other day and said I would be over "The Great Personal Treasure Project". I have no clue what this is, but I get to work with their residents and Carlyle's advertising agency to help put it together. I just hope this help's me practice what I've learned over the last four years and I hope to be an asset to their company.
This is the first time I am working somewhere and don't know a single person. I've met with my supervisor a few times but I don't even know that much about her. It's weird to think I am about to start a two month journey and have no clue what it's going to be like. How exciting!
One thing that isn't so exciting... our dress requirement. Da-da-da-dum... Business Dress. Not only will I be buying clothes to wear all summer long but I will also be buying hose to wear with my skirts. Have you ever worn hose in Georgia during the summer? I will let you know how that turns out. Or now that I think about it, maybe I won't.
I am glad God has worked out everything for this internship and has allowed me to feel good about this going into it.
On a different note, I am also glad I have my dad. Not only is he a good father but he is a friend and a listening ear. Thanks daddy...
