It’s been about 5 months since the 2018 SPS Interns packed up our stuff, said our goodbyes (for some of us, through tears), and headed back to our corners of the country. When I returned back to North Carolina, I felt...different.
Well, I've been home for a week now. I hope to stay in touch with a whole lot of people from this summer - all the interns, my coworkers, everyone in the SPS office - and I still have a lot of thoughts, opportunities, and feelings from the summer.
I am not sure if I can properly encapsulate the intern experience I had here. I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity and to be able to learn so much, and to meet such incredibly wonderful people.
This week everything has settled into place. The internship is coming to a close and I wanted to make sure that I finished up everything that was on my plate by Friday. So in order to do that I finally crossed my t's and dotted my i's.
I hope to live everyday of my life like I did this past week. Cherishing every second and grabbing every opportunity. From board meetings to amazing Maryland crabs to my final day at the gym, it was a blast.
