INTERNSHIP JOURNAL DAYS 25-28

Thursday

April 27, 2017

Today I spent a chunk of my time working on looking up photos, its shockingly difficult to find good photos that show a lot of floor. I also have been working on social posts for Don. I need to revamp the style and possibly try crazy things that might just work

Today was so weird. It was a normal day but it was fast and slow at the same time. I also didn't do a lot today. I asked Chrissy if she needed help and I did a little bit of that but she wasn't here so it was over email and it was slightly confusing but we worked it out and got things done. I went out to lunch with the guys which was fun because we went to this place where they give you ridiculously large sandwiches (that i proceeded to leave on the counter at home....yeah it went bad...I'm pretty upset about it) I digress! After that I spent the day trying to close some jobs and working on the exercise Don gave me.

I was moved today! It's kind of nice because now my desk fits my tall stature. Plus this chair is so comfy I wish they would let me have the chair because its become my favorite thing to sit in. So I'm over with Shane, Don, and Jim which is nice because Derek's wife is having(had?) a child and he won't be in until I leave. So I had to say bye to him last Wednesday, but now I am not in an office by myself which is nice. I talked to Don about the social posts and we will probably talk to Jeff tomorrow about them. At the end of the day I helped Shane with setting up some photography equipment.

Early April Fools. There is no entry today because I don't remember what I did. Joke is on me.

Rob had given me something to work on, on Friday. For the most part I finished it. I just need Rob to look over it and tell me what I had to change, because there is always room to improve. I got those edits back and fixed them. He had me stamp the printed out versions of the panels I made. So now we wait. I've been working on editing a video in premiere pro, Shane who works mainly in premiere and after effects has been giving me pointers and teaching me things. It's awesome I didn't even have to take motion graphics to learn. (For those who don't know Motion Graphics is a class Kutztown offers to learn After Effects usually taught by the awesome Professor Miller. But I didn't have space last semester and this semester it was offered during my internship, so C'est la vie.) It's awesome I have a chance to learn from someone while on internship and see it applied to his everyday work.

I sat with Shane today for like 30 min. and he gave me a intro to After Effects. I learned so much just in the 30 min. He is seriously one of the coolest people, he finds time during the day to help me out. Rob was in late due to personal reasons so I went around and asked everyone if they needed help but right now is a slow time because they just finished a bunch of projects so no one really needed help. I talk to public relations department and they told me the job that I was working on yesterday was reviewed and on Rob's desk. I got the revisions and I changed everything accordingly. We are sending it to the client today to show them how it looks and if they want changes. After all that I had Shane look over the video I am working on. I will post the video to my blog once I submit it to a contest. I'm still like in between what I want to do for my internship project. I think I might contact my professor and run some ideas by her.

INTERNSHIP JOURNAL DAY 8 & 9

Wednesday

March 29, 2017

So I forgot to post Wednesday....I had the time but i forgot. I've been waiting for feedback, but I was told I have to wait till Derek comes back so I have to wait until tomorrow to get feedback on the social media posts. Rob didn't have anything to give me, so me being the awesome intern I am, went around and asked everyone if they needed help. Only Chrissy need help. I spent most of my day following different companies on twitter for one of our clients. I listened to the whole Hamilton soundtrack twice today. I also think that's an accomplishment all in it's self. Today was very slow moving, but I figured some days would be. 

(I drank zero water and coffee)

Ugh traffic was brutal. I left at 7:30 am to get here (USUALLY I get here at like 7:50-8:00am) I got here at 9:00 am?!!?! 222 and 422 was backed up like no other. I may or may not have sang Hamilton in my car at the top of my lungs with the windows down because we were in stopped traffic.

DEREK IS BACK! Which is awesome because now I have someone in office to talk to. He left for lunch tho.... I haven't gotten to talk to him about the project yet. Hopefully we can today. I've been working on different things today for kind of myself. I've been thinking about my project (still zero ideas) and I worked on some stuff for the COC because Rob said I could. It's around 1:00 pm as I type this and I'm on my break but I think I'm gonna walk around and see if anyone needs any help today. I'm not bored, I just don't like sitting here without internship work, I also don't have the wifi password so I can't download the fonts I need for my COC job. Side note I think Chrissy really likes me which is awesome because she is hilarious!
