Internship Presentation

Monday, August 3, 2009

This past weekend I went back to Mississippi to give my internship presentation. I probably have the most boring interior design job that exists, but somehow I made it sound really interesting. After my presentation the other students told me how fun and interesting my job sounds and that I found the perfect internship for me.

I tried to make my presentation interesting by telling funny stories, like how confusing Army-acronym language was at first, and how difficult military time was to get used to. I also put tons of funny pictures in the presentation, including this one of me sleeping under my cubicle and using a floor plan as a pillow.



I may have a boring job, but I like it anyway. I love every single aspect of interior design. Now that I'm in the real world I am a 100% certain that I picked the right career. I always saw myself working at an architecture firm and later becoming a sales rep. Those jobs sounds interesting and I would be able to do a variety of different things.

At my current job I do the same thing every day. I write huge documents describing furniture. It may be boring, but I love interior design so much that I even enjoy the boring work! This isn't what I considered my dream job, but this experience has taught me how much I love systems furniture (cubicles) and I love working for the government.

Everyone listening to my presentation laughed at the funny stories and seemed to enjoy it. At the risk of sounding bragadocious, I think my presentation was the best out of the interior design students. As of 10 am central time, I completed my 400 hour internship requirement. Internship #1 is now complete and I'm moving on to internship #2. Due to the economy, I'll be doing internship #2 at the same place where I am now. I'll be staying here until December and hopefully some permanent positions will become available after that.

Check back tomorrow, I have a huge update. Facebook friends, your questions will be answered.

  3. Hey Rebecca, thanks for the comment on my blog. I am really excited about the new space we will be living in. It is VERY 60's-ish!! It is a high rise with lots of chrome and stainless details. So that is why I decided to go with IKEA it just seem to match the style of the place much better! We are even doing our bedroom in black and bold colors with lots of symmetrical shapes! I am really looking forward to having FUN with this place and stepping out of my "comfort zone" with the decor. Usually, I am very traditional with a touch of modern. I tend to prefer warm cozy colors like reds, sage greens and browns. But in the new place I am going with bright true REDs, Bold blues, Maybe even some Lime green or even Chartreuse. Lots of Black and white contrasts (mainly black & white photos/canvas on the wall), glass and shiny metallics. It is gonna be FUN!! When I saw the space I knew there was NO WAY my traditional style was going to work in this place. It would have made it look worse. Anyway, it is great to talk with someone who "gets" the excitement of doing up a new place! HUGS!!
