For the remainder of the summer, a weekly post concerning my summer co-op job will appear on box with a frown. My coordinator encouraged me to write about anything, while my boss had this to say: “Tweeting and blogging can get you fired.” Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure he was joking.
This is the final co-op blog post. Feel sad. Feel very sad.
It’s one of those brilliant sunny days and life seems perfect, if only for a moment. I’m on the ferry right now, headed home for a “holiday” before school starts up again. When I was first approached to write this blog, it was in lieu of an end of co-op report. I jumped at the chance to avoid a tedious write-up, for the more creative approach of the blog entries.
Although I avoided the report, I still feel the need to reflect on my past four months. As a whole, the work has been rewarding and definitely a boost to my resume. Professionally, the co-op term has been everything it should be, but I’m more interested in the personal side. The people I work with are the best part of the job. I feel like I’ve only just scratched the surface on getting to know them.
I’m really going to miss hearing Istvan clear his throat and sharing a workspace with Alethea. Richard may think his inbox will have a little more room now that I’ve left, but don’t worry, I’ll still forward you plenty of emails.
A note on the below photo… A co-worker departed today for Burning Man. What photo pops up in my news feed the very same day? This:
