Last Post

I am writing this post from America, because I had to start my last day super early and there was no free internet service at the LaGuardia Airport believe it or not. So for my last post I will briefly talk about my morning and just my whole feeling of my Internship.

Coming down from the Internship high

To put it simply, I have less than a week left in London, well technically a week. My flight leaves Friday morning. How am I feeling? I'm not sure, I have mixed feelings to be honest.

Marketing Espionage

During the later half of June is when I started doing marketing related task, all due to the arrival of the new intern. Of course I was excited and eager as well, but in the next few days I quickly noticed my dislike of the new intern, and finished my work quickly.

Midterm Meetings -text heavy- *Updated~!*

Midterm meeting on the double? I have already had one meeting before, but I didn't know I was going to have two meetings.

Farm Animals and being stubborn.

This past week a lot has happened. My ear refuses to clear itself despite the liquid and sudafed that I take, had midterm meeting with my boss and director of the program I'm on, went to a midterm party, went to a farm, and stood in line for three hours for something I wasn't even going to. It's been a long tiresome week but like I mentioned in my last post I now have exactly three weeks until my return to the United States.

Bring it!

Ragged School Museum

Picture from:
This entire week I've been doing more office work, which is what I am supposed to be doing. It is also when I figured that
my actual internship would begin as well. When I first arrived I quickly learned that my work site was understaffed and needed help as much as possible. Mind you I didn't know I was going to be surrounded by children I despise them, but I sucked it up and provided as much assistance as I could for the next three to four weeks after my arrival.

Winston Churchill War Rooms

From my hazy memories from high school history class the name Winston Churchill is a name that my generation should at least know or heard about. Who knows, I feel that my generation got the short stick of several things so our minds are all over the place.

Anyways, during a moment in my internship I was able to review some history of this great leader.

Where's My Internship?!

I've been in London for almost three weeks and of course I've been working at my Internship for majority of those three weeks, give a day or two.

I do have one hang-up

No it's not having to walk everywhere, or riding the tube(train) every morning, listening to the accents. It's none of those...

I felt like I haven't actually started my internship.

HMS Belfast + London Bridge Rising

One of the perks of being an Intern at Hi-London is the fact that I am also able to see the different sights of London while helping student learn English, or being a chaperone.

Eh, no biggie!

Monday's trip was to the HMS Belfast, I had no clue what it was or the history, but on the way there I got to see the London Bridge, which then reminded me of a children's rhyme; London Bridge is falling...yeah anyways...

We're going on a bear hunt~!

Today was first actual day at my internship, despite the pain that still lingered! I was told that I was going to be with a group of children and see how the children's class works. So i dressed nicely because I thought I was going to be in a classroom, nope I was wrong tons of walking! We were on a mission to go see a puppet play!

This train terminates at Cockfosters

I finally arrived in the United Kingdom, but at the expense of my little body!

Before leaving America I started to feel a little ill, and it continued to get worse on the way to the airport, on the plane ride and during the tube ride ( the tube is what trains are called in the UK). I had the chills and lower back aches, and I'm
still not sure where it came from, but I'm surviving through it.
