Sadly, with the start of summer brings the end of on-campus art events. So, I am going to take a “vacation” from those posts and fill you in on my latest experience in the “Real World.”
What is the “Real World,” you might ask? It is the world outside of our comfortable little college bubbles where we have to face the music and do what college has prepared us to do. Believe it or not, we are now technically adults (even if you are like me and still have about five stuffed animals lying around her room).
I’m not saying that the “Real World” is more important than the “College World.” I have done so many awesome things at school that I can’t just forget about. The “Real World” is just something that we have to face because it lasts a lot longer than the average four years of “College World.”
This past Tuesday I started an internship at Riger Advertising in Binghamton, NY. I’ve only been there for two days, but I’m already enjoying the small, creative atmosphere of an ad agency. I’m already beginning to help with projects for various clients and get a taste of all that the “Real World” has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, it was a little nerve wracking, but I am so glad I went for this opportunity, and I am thankful that Riger has given it to me.
Bottom line? If you have the chance to explore the “Real World,” take it. It’s not going to be as comfortable as the “College World” we know and love, but it is definitely worth it.
