I can't believe it but my internship is almost over. Next week is my last week at the capitol and I will be back in Stillwater for the summer.
This internship was one of the hardest, toughest, most life-changing, great things I have ever had to do in my life. As many of my family and friends know, I had my ups and downs. The first week was definitely the hardest. That seems so long ago now.
I learned so much about myself while I was living in Oklahoma City. I learned how much I love being a student and that I really need to take advantage of it while I can. I have the rest of my life to work. :)
I learned who are my true friends. There are some that I can call them when I get back into town and its like no time has passed...others, I have to be with them constantly. I love them all though.
I learned, a little bit, about driving in OKC. I'm still not great but I think that I have definitely improved.
I learned how valuable a good impression is. I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of people and make a lot of really great friends that will only help me later on in life.
This internship was amazing. I learned so much about Oklahoma legislature, agriculture issues, and how to keep involved with both after I leave the capitol. Overall, it was a great experience and I wouldn't trade it for anything. :)
