Interning this past semester has taught me more than I ever thought I could learn, not only about my field, but about myself as well. I was lucky enough to have an internship in the Marketing Office at the College. During my time there, I experienced first-hand every aspect of marketing, including photography and videography, advertising, web content management, social media management, and so much more.

As someone graduating in the very near future, the idea of finding a job keeps me up at night. I was lucky to get an amazing education, but soon I will have an amazing amount of education loans. Fortunately, the Mount’s Career Center teaches you how to fly before being kicked out of your comfy nest.
The past two weeks have been relatively hectic, but I am finally done with my first set of term assignments. I have also started constructing my final papers which are due at the end of term today. What have I been up to you might ask? Besides editing and revising my assignments, I have been embarking on a few exciting adventures.
I recently took a tour of the Chelsea Football Club, and no, this is not American Football. I got to go out near the pitch and learn about how football began. Although I am not an avid fan, it was an amazing experience to see a stadium of such magnitude in London.
Guilty as charged. I apologize for not writing to all of you last week. It was a crazy one. I got home from Dublin on Monday and ran to my Shakespeare lecture on Richard II (it is not my favorite Shakespearean piece, but it is a perfect example of a history play). This week was paper week for me. I wrote two seven-page papers, and while I enjoyed writing them, it’s refreshing to have a little bit of a break to edit them before they are due in two weeks. I apologize, I am forgetting myself. Let me tell you about Dublin.
Since I last posted on the Knight Life blog, I have been on some pretty exciting adventures. During my first week at the University of Reading, I attended a lecture on Shakespeare presented by Professor Andrew Gurr, a Shakespearean expert, and my first series of seminars for my Romantics to Decadents Nineteenth Century Poetry class. The class structure is extremely different from life at the Mount, but I am quickly growing accustomed to listening in lecture and speaking during seminar. I have joined the newspaper staff at Reading and will be writing for their travel section while in the UK. In order to begin constructing my first set of thesis papers, I’ve already maxed out on library books taken out in one week. Currently, I am reading Hamlet with a nice cup of tea as I sit to write to you all.
