Reflecting on My Internship Experience

On the whole I had a very good internship experience. During my feedback meeting with the CFO of the company I expressed that the only improvement I would have liked to see was for my internship to do more with the finance and accounting section of a company.

What Went Right, What Went Wrong: My Summer in Spain

My summer is more or less over. I’ve met some amazing people and I’ve eaten some great food. Nothing more could have made this summer more wonderful. It’s been quite the journey, but this is my final post. I’ll reflect on my time abroad how I’m adjusting to life back in the States.

Hola! This last weekend we hopped on a flight to Barcelona!

Deutschland Wins the World Cup!

This weekend was a great time to stay in Berlin!  I was lucky enough to experience Germany win the World Cup while in Berlin! The energy in the city was amazing and it was great to experience the victory celebrations. The spirit in the air was of nothing less than exhilarating.

Video Blogging, Saying Goodbye, Barcelona, and El Rastro

My work-load has picked up quite a bit. We’ve recently been doing a lot of blogging at my internship, more specifically, video blogging. It’s one of those things I thought I would hate, but as it turns out I’m enjoying it immensely!
