Okay, slight lie, I am currently on the train entering CT once again, but you guys get the idea.
As I am closing in on my first, albeit shortened, week of my internship, there is much to tell!
Tuesday was my first day, and as I rode the train in with my best friend from high school (who is also interning in NYC this summer) we could not help but feel like we were back at the first day of school. You get the same mix of excitement and nerves.
Cut to one successful subway ride and short walk later, and I was there.
Luckily, my first-day-of-school fears quickly subsided when I met my boss, Karen (the editor of the main publication I will be working on), and got to see my office. Okay, it is just a cubicle, but for a college student it is so exciting! My view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island is absolutely to die for.
The first few days have flown by as I have been meeting a ton of new people and learning so many different things, but I have loved every minute of it. Before I knew it I was writing stories on securities and Treasury sales to post online, and even editing the website! I dove right in and it really feels like I have been there for forever. Karen has been such a great help in teaching me and answering all of my (millions of) questions. I am already loving the New York—life and can tell that this is going to be a great summer!
I will post again early next week, but in the meantime, I hope you are all enjoying summer!
