My summer is winding down. I’ve got two weeks left in my internship, and my emotions are a mixed bag.
On one hand, I’m happy. I’ve had a fantastic time at Google; I’ve learned so much, and accomplished more than I hoped to. Pretty soon we’ll be launching my completed project internally. People all over the world will be using and (hopefully!) enjoying what I created. That’s a huge step up from my internship last summer, where a very small amount of people ever saw the product of my labors.
On the other, I’m incredibly nervous. I’ve had such a great experience here, I don’t want it to end. I’d love to work at Google after I graduated, but I’m not going to find out if I get that opportunity for quite a while. When my friends are already finding out from their internships if they’ll be receiving an offer or not, I have a lot of time to wait. And wait I will, but I’ll be nervous - and anxious - the whole time.
