Internship update

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

So, the owner of vice versa boutique decided to go on vacation and forget to tell anyone. She left a note near the cash register which is being watched by another intern. The intern hands me a note and it says

"I hope you know how to use a cash register, in New Mexico see you in three weeks."

So she won't be around to sign my daily task sheet, and I'll be done before she even comes back. I do alterations in a small back room, now she wants me to be in a dead end boutique by myself being a cashier?

Thank goodness my school advisor came in that same day for a surprise visit. I handed her the note and my advisor told me to go home for the day because she's going to find me a new place to intern.

My advisor called the owner and locked up her store. She refuses to sign my task papers so I lost some credits. I hope I'll be able to make it up in another internship.

Library programs

Sunday, January 30, 2011

Wow these are so cool. I googled the nearest library and noticed that they have a drop in program for toddlers. Grams and I had a date with sprout so we brought him to the drop in program. The librarian on duty reads, plays music, and even does crafts with the kiddos. Each session is about 45 minutes long.

Best of all it's free, and offered in almost every library. It gives him a chance to start interacting with other kids before he starts pre-school.

The drop in program is three times a week, there is no commitment you don't need to go to each one.

I figure it's something I can write about if parents are looking for something stimulating to do with their young kids a few times a week.

Internship

Friday, January 21, 2011

So it's been a couple of days and I started my 5 week internship at Vice Versa Boutique. I must say I feel horrible going in every day. She gave me what it looks like to be a closet to work out of. My sewing machine doesn't even fit on the table. I'm supposed to be learning the ropes, but she hasn't come to check on me in the back room for days. I even offer to get her a cup of coffee or tea, but no.

She sits in the front waiting for customers to come in while listening to crazy loud music. She doesn't want to be bothered at all. I even offered to go outside to try to bring customers in, but she said it's not professional.

I just thought an internship would be different. This is just bad.

I'm sick!

Saturday, January 15, 2011

So I finally got the cold grams got from the New Years party we hosted. Sad part is I got it and didn't even hang out much. I fell asleep around ten, and an assortment of family members came in at midnight to wish sprout and I a happy new year.

This cold seems to be beating the crap out of me. I'm afraid sprout will be getting it soon. Little man seems to get croup when he gets sick. I feel so bad when he has that bark cough. It sounds so painful. I'm not looking forward to it.

School is pretty much still the same. I'm one semester away from graduating, I start my internship very soon at a boutique called vice versa boutique. It's based in Hartford. Right in the downtown area, I can't wait to start it soon.

Grams cold is pretty much gone. She's pretty much back to her own self. I can't wait to feel better so we can all go out again.

Work in progress

Hey everyone

hey everyone! I hope all is well. I'm learning how to do this blogging thing and so far I 
Iike it. The weather is cold and nasty and it just sucks. I gave a bunch of projects for school that are going to be due soon, but I just want to cuddle with my sprout. He makes it so easy to make me sit down from my busy life and just take it easy.

My grams was in the hospital a few days ago. There was a cold going around, and with the entire family here for the new year it seems like someone had a cold. Grams is good now, but I feel like I'm going to get whatever she had soon. 

I know winter just started a few weeks ago and all, but jeeze I need warm weather. 

So, I just wanted to say hi, as I get used to blogging. Have a good day everyone.
