working at internship

If you're in college like I am, you have probably heard about applying for an internship or applied for one yourself. The whole entire time can be nerve-wracking, stressful, and also exciting. Here are nine things you've probably done or heard if you are in the wonderful world of internships.

1. Searching for internship

Because, honestly... they are so hard to find sometimes! Plus, all the good ones are taken when it comes to your turn to get one.

2. Narrowing down the choices of places to intern

I have to make a good choice. I have to make a good choice. I have to make a good choice. I can do this.

3. Getting a call back from a place you want to intern

Omg really?! You want me to come in? For sure!

4. Preparing for the interview

What kinds of questions are they going to ask? What should I bring? Am I prepared?! I'm so nervous.

5. During the interview

Am I doing the right things? Are they impressed? Am I making a good impression?

6. When you go home after the interview and contemplate everything that happened

7. And now... we wait to get the call back from them

Wait, is that them? Ugh, toll free again!

8. Finally getting the call...

Yes, okay. Of course... I can do that!

9. ...and when you get the internship!!

And all your hard work pays off.

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
