first week as an intern

Been doing the grown thing and working 8-5 for the past four days and only got about 12 weeks left! haha The first week on the job has been pretty slow and when I mean pretty slow, I mean very slow. Like yesterday and today, I got there at 8am and didnt start doing anything until about 10-10:30. I literally just sit in my cubicle and either draw/color like I did this morning, or I go on the computer. Im hesitant about surfing the web though just cause I dont know if Im supposed to. Yesterday I sat in on two meetings and they were super boring. I guess it doesnt help being that I didnt know much what they were discussing but regardless, they were way too long and way to slow. The first one was a like a monthly meeting within the unit Im interning in and with the supervisor of the whole operations. They discussed a new website that will replace the existing one, some different mail system regarding checks to clients, and some other updates. Then the second one was about a project they are in the middle of doing which will make it easier to look up and deal with clients accounts. I have started some processes and inputting data into the computer that deals with the new project though which is kind of cool. I have to search peoples accounts and check to see what type of account it is, (CRAT, CRUT, exectorship, rev/irrev, charitable trust, etc) and then list their ID number in which it will help to identify. It is a tedious process but still cool to actually know what the stuff means since Ive seen it in school. Hopefully things start to pick up a bit and I get more hands on stuff though

this is my cubicle

my picture from this took like an hour or so on and off haha

this is my room for the summer (the bed is so tiny!)

moved his bed in my room for the last 3 nights while we
were at school haha we also had the girl he's talking/smashing
 with us. she slept with him though


  1. Socrkid: So is your company providing you with room and board too? I interned too before going to work out of college but it was a busy time since we worked on tax returns for clients at the accounting firm. It gives you just a taste of real work, it's not a complete experience. At least what you are doing is better than some of the other intern jobs I've heard about where all they have you do it be a gopher and not teach you much.

    I found it funny your roommate sleeps with a soccer ball.

  2. Never thought about a career in graphic design? Would be a nice design for gift wrap...just put on the bank logo and you get extra points... lol

    haha 'she slept with him though'. Do I read there a tiny little bit of jealousy? Bromance? jk ;-)

  3. hope you enjoy your "job" I had an intern at my business for the spring semester. Have to admit I was ready for the end of the visit. Good luck..

  4. Haha. Your in NC? Where is your tan. Those are some pasty legs for a soccer kid. You don't fit in that bed in your new room. Buy you an aero bed. You have some artist talent.

    You want to work in banking. Congrats. I loved trust law back in school. You seem happy. Glad you passed the GMAT.

    This is a paid internship I hope. Have a great 12 weeks. Don't forget to have fun. Your experiencing what work life is like. Now you see why people want to go on vacation.

  5. Welcome to the world of cubicles. You will have to fight your way out of them every once in a while. Stay active, and it will be easier to keep some balance in your life.

  6. Socrkid, I have a question about sexuallity, in this case about you, respond if you want to: the girl that propouse threesome with you, if the other boy were hot he and the girl allowed you guys to play during the act, do you think you would try? or never think about sex with girls?

  7. FoC- naw this internship doesnt which kind of sucks cause my classmates got some that did. butt there were also classmates didnt get an intership at all so im good with what i have

    Kevin- hahaha not at all, she can have and he can have her! they are good together though so i enjoy seein that

    Drew-yeah, im ready for the end of it already too!...and its only the second week haha

    friendly reader- im pasty cause my dad is from england and my siblings besides my youngest brother got my dads genes which keeps us pretty pale haha i wish i was tanner and im working on it! but yeah, i understand why people cant wait for vacations now! haha

    Robert-that is very true. ive visited workers who have offices with nice views and i cant wait to get to those positions

    anonymous-naw i dont think i would. i dont think about sex with girls and think that would keep from it...but then again, i guess i can try things at least once haha

  8. Hey there bro. I just wanted to let you know that you kept me company all weekend. I'm in a sort of similar place as you as a collegiate athlete and I think that I am bi. I am thinking of doing the whole blog thing too, but wanted to ask you if you think that this whole blogging thing helped you out? I am not at the point right now to even hint about this to anyone I know or have any sort of remote connection too whatsoever. Wow-that sounded pretty

    You were great company this weekend at a time I was feeling pretty anxious about these feelings I have. I pretty much think I know who you are and if you are who I think, ECCC made a huge mistake not hanging on to you for dear life.

  9. calibivbdude-yo man, no problem at all and glad my stuff could help in some way... hit me with an email and we could talk if you want...

  10. You're not gay, if you are willing to try it out with a girl. You are bi, not gay. Thanks!

  11. anonymous- haha i never said i was willin to try it with a girl, at least i dont think i did. im pretty sure im gay though! haha
