A Thank You To The People Who Made My Summer Internship More Than I Ever Expected

From, your favorite marketing intern.

Summer Interns
Julia Waterbury

This summer, I was fortunate enough to be offered a position as an intern in the Marketing Department at a commercial construction and real estate company in Chicago. As a marketing major who knew absolutely nothing about the construction or commercial real estate industries, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I knew it would be good experience, but what I didn't know was that it would turn out to be both the fastest 10 weeks of my life and one of the best decisions I've made in my college career.

There were so many people who played a part in making this such a fun summer, and I'm grateful to all of them, so thank you:

To the office

From day one, I felt welcomed by everyone in the office, from the recent college grads to the CEO. Even though I was just a summer intern, I became a part of the family and felt at home in the office. I never thought I'd be the person that says they genuinely look forward to going to work every day, but I genuinely looked forward to going to work every day, so thank you for making me that person. (Did I look forward to the hour commute through rush hour traffic? Not so much, but you can't have it all.)

To my team

Despite the fact that some of you were a little skeptical about having an intern at first, you got used to me pretty quickly and made working something that was actually fun. I truly enjoyed every project that you gave me and learned so much from it all. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to join such a great team and, of course, for being by far the coolest department in the company.

To the other interns

The summer definitely wouldn't have been the same without you four and my daily detours to your side of the office. From our adventures on-site visits to our weekly intern lunches to our inside jokes, you never failed to make me smile (even though you liked to hate on me for being in Marketing). Thank you for all the times you had to explain to me what the heck something like 50' x 52' bays or a 36' clear height meant and for (mostly) putting up with all the pictures I made you take for our social media.

And, especially, to my mentor

You might have been the most skeptical of anyone in the department about getting an intern, but fortunately, I managed to exceed your expectations and you quickly became my go-to person for just about everything. Thank you for not hating me for the 5,000 times a day that I showed up at your desk asking questions or looking for more work to do. I'm going to miss our many daily chats and all the advice that you gave me on everything from writing press releases to life.

I definitely couldn't have asked for a better internship experience or better people to work with. So to all of you: thank you for an unforgettable summer.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
