Moving Day is approaching

I finished the internship last week and am now in the process of trying to wrap my head around moving back to Toronto. I keep trying to tell myself I'm going back, but it's just not sinking in. I really do have mixed feelings about going back...

I'm going to miss family and friends here in Newfoundland, and really miss where I was interning...but at the same time, I know it's time for a change again. Time to move on and experience something else. Even though I have lots of people telling me to stay, and half of me wants to stay...I'm still making myself go, because I don't feel...settled.

It's like trying to put not even a square peg, but an oval peg in a round's almost right, but not quite. It's not enough. It's just...not. I go. :) Again.

The job hunt is on for Toronto, so if you hear of any openings, please, I'm all ears. :) And to my TO friends, you've been don't be surprised when I start texting to meet for coffee/drinks/whatever! :)

Have a happy weekend!

Internship = Done!

Today is the last day of my internship, and it's with a heavy heart that I'm leaving. I've really enjoyed my time here, and there are so many things I'm thankful for:

The people I've learned from, worked with, and received advice from. What an amazing group, I'm going to miss them!

The clients I've worked for and the projects I've worked on...I've been exposed to many different fields and a variety of clients, and I've really gotten a taste for the industry here in Newfoundland. I'm so glad to have worked here at home, even for a short period of time.

Thanks for an amazing couple of months, and who knows...I could be back sooner than I thought. :)

I'm Back!

I realize I've neglected my blog for a few weeks, but it's for a good reason! Not only had I been doing my internship but I'd been working part time at the 3 or 4 days a week, I'd work 14 hour days. Let's just say...not fun.

But my time at the bookstore came to an end, and while I was sad to go, I missed having a life outside work. Since I'm moving back to Toronto at the end of the month, I wanted to have time to spend with my family and friends before I leave.

In my last post , I talked about how well my internship is going, and I have to say, it just keeps getting better. Even though I've only been there for a few weeks, I've been so lucky to be assigned lots of different tasks, like writing for company newsletters, helping coordinate events and even heading up my own client project.

Next week is my last week, and I'm really sad to be leaving. Everyone I work with is wonderful; always full of advice and available for a chat if I ever have questions or need someone to proof read something I've written. They'll certainly be missed! :(

However, it's time to make a move and try to break into a whole other type of industry. I have no doubt I'll be learning even more in Toronto, and I'm looking forward to seeing what it has to offer.
