I never thought my work buddies would get a post of their own. But since I think about them all the time, I think it's required.
At first in my internship, I felt unsupported. I felt as if I wasn't making the kind of connections that would make me want to stay. I felt it was lacking only one thing - meaningful friendships.
I certainly feel like I have that group now. It's getting larger and larger since we're all pretty social and inclusive, but I feel pretty happy to feel grounded.
I've seen them more frequently in these past few weeks than my bestest friends, in the past few months.
I recognize we'll all be back in our respective states once our internships end and school begins again, but for this next month, we're stuck with each other. :)
