We all knew it wouldn't last forever. After ten weeks of being at the Reinbeck courier it is finally time for the intern to leave. On Monday, November 12th, the new trimester at the high school would have started, which means that my internship will have come to a close.
This internship was an absolutely wonderful experience. I loved coming to the office, for as short a time as I did, every day with Jessica. I learned so much about being a part of a small newspaper, and I'm very glad that I took advantage of actually having an internship. When I first came into this internship, I thought that maybe once I graduate I would major in journalism. Although being at this newspaper has showed me that maybe journalism just isn't the thing for me. Procrastination is my strongest skill, and deadlines are excruciating (even though they're really not.) Even though being at the newspaper showed me that journalism wasn't my major, I still am glad I did it.
If you don't know what you want to do with your life, or even if you know exactly what you want to do, I suggest interning. I'm mostly talking to high schoolers, because what you think a career is, is probably not what it actually is. If you have the opportunity to internship at a business, I say you take it. I thank Jessica and the Reinbeck Courier for putting up with me for 10 weeks, and I also thank Sherri Walker for setting up this internship! I definitely had fun, and learned so much.
