Intimidated By The First Internship?

Intimidated By The First Internship?

We have all been through or are still going through the process of finding the best internship suited just for you. Once you accept that internship offer, many think that the stress is gone... While I find myself stressed and intimidated by the first day of the internship itself. Following, includes a few things that I am worried about and want others to recognize that they are not the only ones stressed about these several ideas.


1. What do I wear?

It is always better to be over dressed than under dressed in my opinion. Every internship is different, therefore it is hard to figure out what is acceptable at this location. During the interviews, you should have tried to pay attention to what your interviewers were wearing in order to get an idea of what to wear on the first day if you are offered the position. No matter what you wear, wear it with confidence.

2. How early do I show up?

As they say, "Early is on time... on time is late." Make sure to wake up early in order to give yourself enough time even if it's too much time. Showing up fifteen to ten minutes early is typically the average time to show up. Always make a call or send an email if you will be late but try to stay aways from being late as much as possible.

3. Do not know exactly what is expected of you?

This is an internship, they know that you are there to learn. Knowing the basics can get you a long way because it shows that you are able to learn. They will be teaching you, they do not expect you to come on your first day and know what you are doing. Therefore, do not stress!

4. Making sure to get along with everyone you interact with

Kill them with kindness. We all know that not everyone in the world is nice and friendly. Do your best to get a long with everyone even if it is not easy. Not everyone gets long with one another, especially in the workplace but all you can do is do your best.

Good luck to everyone who is receiving an internship, just know that everyone goes through this. Also, good luck to everyone out there applying and going on interviews. We know it is not easy but do your best and you will succeed.

8 Types Of People Fetuses Grow Into That 'Pro-Lifers' Don't Give 2.5 Shits About

It is easy to fight for the life of someone who isn't born, and then forget that you wanted them to be alive when you decide to hate their existence.


For those in support of the #AbortionBans happening all over the United States, please remember that the unborn will not always be a fetus — he or she may grow up to be just another person whose existence you don't support.

The fetus may grow up to be transgender — they may wear clothes you deem "not for them" and identify in a way you don't agree with, and their life will mean nothing to you when you call them a mentally unstable perv for trying to use the bathroom.

The fetus may grow up to be gay — they may find happiness and love in the arms of someone of the same gender, and their life will mean nothing to you when you call them "vile" and shield your children's eyes when they kiss their partner.

The fetus may grow up and go to school — to get shot by someone carrying a gun they should have never been able to acquire, and their life will mean nothing to you when your right to bear arms is on the line.

The fetus may be black — they may wear baggy pants and "look like a thug", and their life will mean nothing to you when you defend the police officer who had no reason to shoot.

The fetus may grow up to be a criminal — he might live on death row for a heinous crime, and his life will mean nothing to you when you fight for the use of lethal injection to end it.

The fetus may end up poor — living off of a minimum wage job and food stamps to survive, and their life will mean nothing to you when they ask for assistance and you call them a "freeloader" and refuse.

The fetus may end up addicted to drugs — an experimentation gone wrong that has led to a lifetime of getting high and their life will mean nothing to you when you see a report that they OD'd and you make a fuss about the availability of Narcan.

The fetus may one day need an abortion — from trauma or simply not being ready, and her life will mean nothing to you as you wave "murderer" and "God hates you" signs as she walks into the office for the procedure.

* * *

Do not tell me that you are pro-life when all of the above people could lose their lives in any way OUTSIDE of abortion and you wouldn't give 2.5 shits.

You fight for the baby to be born, but if he or she is gay or trans, you will berate them for who they are or not support them for who they love.

You fight for the baby to be born, but if he or she is poor or addicted, you will refuse the help they desperately need or consider their death a betterment of society.

You fight for the baby to be born, but when the used-to-be-classroom-of-fetuses is shot, you care more about your access to firearms than their lives.

It is easy to pretend you care about someone before they are even born, and easy to forget their birth was something you fought for when they are anything other than what you consider an ideal person.

"Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow"

By: Langston Hughes

Dreams are what keep me going everyday. The dream of my life. The dream to live where I want. The dream to do what I want. The dream to conquer the world. The dream to succeed. The dream to be happy in my own life.
