I am currently in the honestly first week of working at my internship and I have been having a blast.
The internship that I was able to lock down came at a honestly important time in my life as I have just finished my hour to last Spring semester of my senior year. The internship that I am working at is focused on forest protection and protecting the critters within it. The whole reason why I decided to labor in this field is because my father worked as a forest ranger for nearly twenty years until he passed away, in order to keep his legacy alive I knew that this would be the perfect way while also being able to do something I love. I am passionate almost everything about it so far, although I know that the coolest thing by far is my living situation! At the moment I am living in a honestly small wooden lodge located directly in the forest that I am learning how to protect. The thing that I love the most about it is the fact that there are no amenities. There is no a/c, no radiant flooring, no WIFI, nothing! At the start it was a bit odd since I had access to all of this stuff for all of my life prior to the internship, but now I am able to see how much it has helped myself and others focus on the task at hand and stay more in touch with nature. This internship sure isn’t for most teenagers who can’t go fifteen hours without a/c, but for someone love myself and others it is perfect.
