Welcome to the real world

It’s actually happening.

I’ve officially been offered a summer internship on the news copy desk of The Columbus Dispatch. I’ll be working fulltime and getting paid for it. It’s really kind of scary when I think about it.

Does this mean I’m an adult now?

To Res Life or not to Res Life?

That is a question.

The small French-themed house that I will be living in next year at Smith, is – or at least was last I knew – still in need of an HC (basically an RA or whatever you call those people on normal campuses) for next year. I initially was not in the least bit interested in this position, but I’m beginning to think that it might be a good idea. I guess I should try weighing some of the pros and cons.

Getting paid
Having a suite for a room
Good life experience
Nice addition to my résumé
Getting to know more people
Having a reason to spend more time at Smith
Getting more involved on Campus
Not having to deal with adjusting first-years or roommate drama

Time commitment
Returning to Smith 2 weeks early and over J-Term (see pro no. 6)
Training sessions
Being the bad guy
Juggling the Sophian, schoolwork, life and this
Needing “intrapersonal” skills

Anyway, I’m still thinking about it. And I’m hoping to talk to the current HC of the house to hear her experience. What do you think?
