Fortune Cookie

In 1 on January 26, 2010 at 2:04 AM

I sit here on the eve of my first internship and am a bit nervous.  It’s not paid and it’s not for class credit.  It is for the betterment of my career and resume. 

Since I have now been “unemployed” for over eight months now, I am grateful to have somewhere to go in the morning, something to do and something to learn.  Who knew that working for free would be so beneficial? 

Recently, I was going through some of my old things and out of nowhere, a fortune, from a fortune cookie, fell to the floor.  I picked it up.  Read it.  Thought about it.  Then read it again.  Yes, this in deed was a fortune.  It said, “Now is the time to try something new.”  And trying something new I will. 

As part of a trend of “firsts,” I will also be riding the TRE for the first time.  The TRE is the Trinity Railway Express and it will save me the trouble of driving all the way to far Dallas from Fort Worth.  It is a godsend because I would probably get lost and be late, and I hate being late, to my first day at M Strategies, the wonderful public relations firm that is giving me the opportunity to intern with them.  Thank you M Strategies!!!

Tomorrow I will begin my first internship, I will ride the TRE for the first time and I will get up the earliest I have gotten up in eight months.  Wish me luck!
