September - Wrapping Up
The last month of my placement was a whirlwind, just like myself, apparently. Realizing that I’ve been through more than half of the three month period and getting closer to starting the semester, I felt the need to take in as much as I could.
August - Stwopendous Experiences
The second month was a time when I became comfortable enough to not use my GPS as much when driving to sites. I also realized that the UK is a beautiful place and because I haven’t made time to explore a lot of it this summer, I need to come back. As my placement reached its halfway point, I became more confident in the work I was doing and also realized that I drank more tea in the last 2 months than I have in my entire life. This is a habit that will probably stay with me for a long time. I never thought I’d say this, but there’s nothing better than a cuppa any time and many times in the day!
July - Game of Thorns
The five months between when I found out and the start of my internship went by really quickly - still in study mode, and field course mode, I barely had any time to prepare. My visa and driver’s license situation were sorted out already due to the special nature of my heritage. So essentially, as with many other things in my life, I hopped right in without any expectations.
