Well, it’s been a while. I admit, I got caught up in my new schedule, readjusting to this whole school thing. My classes are finally becoming specific to things that I enjoy, which is always interesting. Hopefully I will have some new posts with work from my classes. And of course with upper level classes comes a greater work load, so here we go, Junior year.
I started my internship the second week of January and it has been an amazing experience thus far. My main task is to tweet for the company (Citygirl Weddings and Events) which is not only fun but a learning experience as well. It’s rewarding when I see that other people have replied, retweeted, or favorited the tweets that I have written. I also get to shadow my boss (Shar) for some client meetings, tastings, and other event related activities. Last weekend I was able to shadow a photo shoot and since I am the social media intern, I live tweeted throughout the event.
The more I work with social media at Citygirl, the more I want to develop my personality through my personal twitter page. I’ve also taken an interest in the new NBC drama, Chicago Fire, and I am hoping to someday meet the person in charge of their twitter to pick their brain. For the record, I’m semi-stalking the show as they film, since they film relatively close to where I live. It’s awesome.
All in all, I’d say January was a pretty successful start to the year. It went by fast and I’m ready for what February brings.
