I feel like last week was really positive and productive. Slightly overwhelming after my check-in for sure, but feeling like I have a direction at least.
Very tired, very ready to be done with this week. Feeling like I have good goals set and good support to meet those goals, now it's just finding/structuring my time to meet all of them. Still kinda weird being introduced as an intern when I'm more than a year out of school. Very blessed to be at my school though, I've noticed a lot of tasks have become easy because I have the relationships established to get buy-in from folks, which is nice to feel like I'm finally a fixture and staff member in the school. A lot to look forward to in my work and my personal growth but I've also made a lot of gains already so far so I need to remember that.
It's been a good if not a bit nerve-wracking start to the school year. I'm excited to see what this year will bring in terms of growth for myself as well as for the school and community. I'm glad I have the opportunity to build on the work Amy started and passed on to me last year, and plan to be more creative throughout my work to accomplish the goals of my school.
Amazing to see how much the Symposium has grown - definitely thinking of how to better connect schools with the resources and knowledge at GW.
