I got the internship and I start working on Thursday.
I interviewed on Wednesday, got fingerprinted on Friday, got the call that I was clear to start working today, and spoke with my supervisor this morning. It’s all happening very fast, but that’s what needed to happen because it was getting close to my deadline. And because I will be working for a Jewish organization, I have a few days to prepare before I start my internship on Thursday. I can’t decide if I’m excited or dreading it. Maybe a little of both.
Surprisingly, the call with my supervisor this morning went quite well, and I like her a little bit more than I did during the interview last week. She was less… weird. We had an actual conversation and because we were only speaking over the phone I couldn’t tell that she was playing with her hair and avoiding eye contact the entire time. I’m hoping it will go just as well when we start working together.
Thursday morning we’re co-leading a grief group together. I’ve never led a group before, except for once, last week during my Group Counseling class. In fact, I only went to my first group therapy meeting (as a member) last month. I’m excited about everything that I will learn and I’m hoping the group members will be open to having a new co-leader. I know I have a lot to learn, but that’s what an internship is for, right? Right.
Now this is when you leave me comments telling me how fabulous I am going to be and how great I am and that I have nothing to worry about. Because it’s all true. Thanks, loves.
