Internship Update

I am so sorry I haven’t done one of these in a while. My life has just been a little hectic these past few weeks but I am off of work tomorrow for a doctors appointment which leaves me some time to update you on my experience.

I am frustrated with it because I feel like I am capable of doing so much more than what they have me doing, but no one feels like they are ready to give me more responsibilities. I don’t know if its because they think I can’t handle it or if there really isn’t that much to do right now but I just don’t want to sit around and look like I am not doing anything then have that held against me even though I do ask if there is anything I can do when I am super bored. Its not like there is an established routine of things in the office so I can’t just come in and do some of the same things every day and that is okay with me but sometimes it seems like I am expected to know what to do and there really is no way for me to know.

One of my biggest frustrations of being an intern at this office is that I feel like my supervisor expects me to know what to do after giving me vague directions and it’s not like I can’t take directions well, I definitely proved that I can in my first internship BUT…. well let me give you an example.

 Today she ask me to update a spreadsheet by changing a few dates and removing info that is no longer relevant for the new year. That was easy enough for me to do but when I completed that she emailed me two different files with information to include on the updated spreadsheet. The thing is that none of the information in the files worked into the spreadsheet at all so I didn’t know what to do. So I walked over to her to ask me to clarify the directions she gave me in the email and she told me all I had to do was highlight two months on the spreadsheet, directions that didn’t remotely match the email she sent me; it wasn’t even necessary for her to send the files for me to do that. Usually I feel dumb when something that seems hard turns out to be easy but this time around I was just annoyed with her inability to communicate directions properly.

I wish I could of went into more detail with this little story so you can understand more but I can’t without telling where I am working which I would rather keep to myself in order to be able to remain honest about my experience.

I just hope things turn for the better with this experience. Not that its bad but I just feel like it could be better.

What’s one thing you won’t carry over from 2012 to 2013?

I know a lot of people create New Year’s Resolutions making promises to them self that most of the time they don’t keep but how many of you seriously sit down and reflect on what you have done within the past year and how you will make the upcoming year a better one. I personally have never been a fan of New Year’s Resolutions, I create goals that are long term and short term for myself when I feel necessary but my friend posted this question on Twitter and it made me think of how important it is to take a step back and see where you came from; its the best way to figure out where you are heading and if it’s somewhere you want to be. So after some motivation from that tweet, I decided that the following will be the one thing I leave in 2012:

-The grudges I have held. This will be the hardest thing for me to leave being because I rightfully (in my opinion) have grudges against people who have done me wrong in 2012 and prior but I think 2013 is the year that I need to let it all go completely.

I think everyone should use the New Year’s as an opportunity to start fresh and leave the past in the past. I wish I could word this better and not sound like a cornball but make the new year a new you. What is one thing you won’t carry over from 2012 into 2013? Think about that and if you want reply and let me know.

Shoes for Sale on eBay. If you are a size 11 and need cute afforable shoes read here!!!!

Hey everyone as you may or may not know I am an avid online shopper as well as an online seller. I am always posting new finds and gently worn pieces to sell from my closet whenever I can and I have two postings for you to check out on my eBay account.

The first one is for a pair of Charles by Charles David shoes. The listing may have them posted as new but I did wear them once briefly but they are in great condition. They are neutral peep toe wedge which is very versatile because it can be worn with just about any color and they can be dressed up or down. Because they are more of a spring/summer shoe, they great to hold onto until the weather gets warmer.

The second one is a pair of shoes I got from Shoe Dazzle that are never worn. I love this website because they have a lot of designer inspired shoes for low prices. These shoes in particular are great they are red patent with an ankle strap and gold heel. I am only selling them because I realized they are not really my personal style.

So there you have it two different styles of shoes, two great prices for each of them. I hope you take the time out to check them out because I promise you they are worth it. And when you get a chance please feel free to follow me on PoshMark under 1womanwolfpack. It is an app I believe is only available on iPhone’s and I will be using it to sell my gently worn goods (most never worn more than once) and new never been worn items. Thanks for reading and happy holidays!

I wish I had enlightening or interesting information to share with you all about my life but I don’t. I’m just being honest I truly don’t. I’m just here blogging about the highs and lows of being me and trying to make it in the competitive world of fashion and right now its not remotely interesting or exciting to be me. I get up at 4 am 5 days a week to do insanity, get dressed, get dolled up (love my makeup), go to my exciting (or not so exciting at times) internship, go home and sleep to do it all over again the next day so umm yea that’s me and I would like to thank my followers for sticking me me this far. Just bare with me guys.
