Although it has been several months since I posted, I haven’t forgotten about my blog. It’s just difficult to find time to get here when I have such a full plate. I a full-time student, media relations intern, I work in retail and I skate for the Flat Track Furies (check us out at emeraldcityrollergirls.net) Needless to say I am looking forward to a couple of months off for summer.

In other news, the last year has been full of accomplishments and I am very proud of the steps I have made in getting closer to my career. I have had several moments in the last 9 months, where I could actually say to myself, “Hey, you actually know what you are doing.” I have felt particularly important as an intern at Ophelia’s Place. I really enjoy working with the staff and providing them with my expertise. Not a day goes by without receiving a thank you from them, but really, I feel like I should be thanking everyone there for letting me learn and grow.

In the last several months, I have made contacts with local media in Eugene, including Storm Kennedy from KUGN radio, who deserves an honorable mention as she has been so great about doing radio interviews with OP and helping me get in touch with other people in the community.

I really am having a great experience and will be graduating after fall term 2013. I plan to continue interning with OP as long as I am in Eugene.
