Hey there! Happy Monday :)
A new week= new excitement, new stress, new happiness, and new opportunity! I just love new weeks- don't you?
This morning I woke up early- just before 7 am to walk and get ready for my last day of my Summer Internship at Women's Lifestyle Magazine! It has been a great few months there- My official title was an Editorial Intern so I learned a lot about what it meant to edit pages, look for grammar mistakes, find layout errors and piece the publication together as a whole. It was so great to see pieces and parts of the magazine from start to finish. Their office is downtown Grand Rapids- so it was also nice to network with a few very nice, professional and talented women in the GR area. Thanks for all that you taught me this summer- the experience (and my first real, published freelance work) was invaluable.
PS. Stay tuned- I think I have FULL PAGE published 'Healthy Ideas' articles for September, October and November! Yay :) In the mean time, check out our latest issue online (see my work on the events calendar)!
After my editing session this morning, I went to my dad's office to bring him a sub sandwich for lunch (we are both extreme fans of Jimmy John's- have you experienced the freaky fast magic?).
A Jimmy John's Turkey Tom is good to the last bite. Then again, I love carbs and turkey... so I guess it's destiny?
I love sitting down to lunch with my dad. It's so good to catch up, talk to him about life and my future (scary stuff), and to just be with him. I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time with him this summer- something that I am so grateful for. I admire him so much. His strength, his courage, his determination... all make me believe in the impossible. I want to do whatever I can to make him proud- because I know he will always be there to support, encourage and love me no matter what I do. He is one of the most incredible people I have ever/will ever know and I am beyond lucky to call him my father.
Thank you dad. I can never fully express how truly grateful I am for all that you do for me.
In other news- I move in to my sorority house in less than 2 weeks- an incredibly scary, exciting, emotional, and thrilling thought. I am so anxious for something new- but I know that leaving my family this time will be extremely bittersweet. Although it's not the first/last time, I know that my long-term time at home is quickly slipping from my fingers.
So now, going into savor-time-at-home-with-family mode QUICK! Only a few days left to enjoy summer. Then, it's time to hit the books.
Sleep tight! :)
