Chiyo: Internship goodbye

December 2, 2011

Today was my last day with Esprit, and it was very bittersweet. It’s hard to believe that it is over, considering I still feel like it was only a few weeks ago that I started at my internship. I arrived a little late due to delayed trains, and immediately went to work on finishing my tasks for the term. Time flew by, and before I knew it, with 10 minutes to (officially) go before I was done, my supervisor Jean appears with a gift bag, and some of my co-workers are standing around with big smiles on their faces. They had a gift and card to present to me, and inside the card all my co-workers whom I worked closest with had signed it. I also got a box of deluxe chocolates which look absolutely scrumptious. I can’t wait to dig in! I was so surprised at the gift and card, especially after a rough Monday. It was all very bittersweet, and after finishing up my final task, I said my goodbyes to everyone. Jean told me that if I ever needed anything, to feel free to shoot her an e-mail. I will never forget the experience I got with Esprit, and I told myself I wouldn’t cry on my last day…but I did. It truly has been the internship of a lifetime, in a city that I am SO in love with. I slowly made my way home to my flat, and reminisced of all my memories with Esprit on the tube ride home.

It was just me at the flat when I got home around 2, so I made some lunch, and got straight to work on my term papers. I don’t know what got into me, but I had (and still have), this crazy motivation to write my term papers. I’ve knocked out 2 of them in just a few hours, and I have 2 more to go. One of them is a case study and is going to require a good few hours alone on research before I can start the paper, and my fourth paper is on Glastonbury Music Festival for my pop culture class that won’t be too bad to write. It was nice having the flat to myself for a few hours, but now two of my flatmates are back, and I no longer have the place to myself.
