Well, this was a crazy week! Monday and Tuesday were totally normal, but then the snow came on fast and thick on Wednesday afternoon and we chose to leave our car at work rather than contribute to the traffic gridlock. Everything was shut down – even our men’s basketball rivalry game was postponed from Wednesday night! You know the weather is serious when they mess with that game.
School was cancelled Thursday and Friday – we worked from home some but definitely didn’t put in the hours that we normally do so it was a bit of a staycation. We walked back to work on Saturday but didn’t do a full day. We had another basketball game Saturday evening that was a nail-biter and then I hung out with some friends while Kyle dissertated the night away.
I was hoping for a normal week next week but we’re missing a day of work to fly to CA for a wedding!

Jon from Our Fine Adventure supported my idea that ‘experiences,’ internships or otherwise, can help advance your career: “I have definitely had some experiences that didn’t seem like they would pay off, but then they actually did. I worked as an accountant at a summer camp, and didn’t really know if it would pay off, or if I was just wasting my time and it wasn’t a job/experience that people would take very seriously when I came to try and get a “real” job. However, in an interview, I was asked about it and how it would relate, and they were impressed with my answer. And I wound up getting that job!! So I definitely think those types of experiences are important… if nothing else, it shows you have initiative and drive to try to get relevant experience!”
