Tomorrow is my last day at my big internship at the American Repertory Theater! After this, it’s the end of senior year and the beginning of some other secret opportunities that I will reveal later… I’m getting my resume out, looking for a portfolio/blog/website platform to exhibit myself, and I’m thinking about a life with possible salaries instead of hourly work. Dude, that’s the dream! Currently, I’m sitting in my cluttered room watching The Stepford Wives on my new Roku contemplating my future months in lovely Plymouth, NH. This movie in no way reflects my life goals…unless you think about it in a way of dismantling a gendered society with marital expectations of domesticated women. #ROBO BOOB BARBIE
My second and final blog post for the A.R.T. is being posted tomorrow! It’s a semi-motivational post documenting the A.R.T. intern breakfast with Diane Paulus at the beginning of the summer and what I have learned from taking part in the education/marketing office. For whatever is happening tomorrow in the office, I was asked to not be gluten free. In response, I asked for drugs (Jokingly….mostly). I’m hoping that tomorrow will be a great way to say goodbye to my internship! I’ve gained some good skills to add to my resume and material for that life where I’m an old lady in a porch swing telling my grandkids how I worked at Harvard one summer.
One of the most difficult parts about the summer has been time spent away from Andrew. Both of us were making our ways in the world for the past two months and gaining skills to help us in our careers. Not to be all mushy and gross but… I cannot wait to be back in the same area with him. I can’t wait to hang out with our friends, drink on the weekends, get coffee together, and watch movies in my new apartment when it’s cold outside. Having a successful summer has been great, but having him to share it with, even just in text, just made it even better.
