Whoa, summer sure goes by quickly. Sometimes I think it all went too fast with school, work, and fun, but really SO much has happened in 4 months. I haven’t been here for just summer time though – I’ve been hanging out with the Ingenex crew since March! The beauty of social media is that I can look back on our memories pretty easily. There are tons of inside joke tweets, hilarious shared Youtube videos, pointless timeline Facebook posts, and too many filtered Instagram photos to count.
I can’t wait to use all the things I’ve learned about social media for the groups and organizations I’m involved with outside of this internship. Also, I have this new-found appreciation for blogging and sharing on the internet. Even if I don’t get a comment, like, or reply, I know others have seen what I’ve shared and I’m happy enough just knowing the internet has allowed me to pass what I deem “important information” along. Mostly, I’m excited to leave here with confidence in the power of any and all things digital.
I can’t believe I got the chance to help rebrand the internship – designing the cover photo, logo, and new twitter background (oh hey, right now would be a great time to check it out twitter.com/ecointernship). We also got to volunteer with Avalon Housing, a non-profit roviding affordable housing in Ann Arbor. Hearing their story was great, and reminds me about all the awesome people right here in AA and all the other awesome people you could find, well, pretty much anywhere.
I dislike saying goodbye and knowing that this internship is over, and I especially hate realizing school is creeping right around the corner. As I’m saying “bye forever” to my co-workers and co-interns, I know it’s not a goodbye at all. It’s a “bye, I’m leaving the office, but will be sure to reply to your tweet and/or like your Facebook post as soon as I get home.”
Keep sharing and passing it on. Do good.
