“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” -The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho
I’m starting off with a quote from the Alchemist. This is a book I read in 8th grade, and it really stuck with me as being one of my favorite reads. For this book to touch me so much at an early age, means a lot to me. I have never really been a fan of reading, I am really picky when it comes to books and have found only a few that I have enjoyed fully. What I am really trying to get at is that this book really spoke to me, and I feel like I need to read it again because at 21 I would understand and appreciate it more. It offers a ton of insight on life, and I could really benefit from it.
The quote however brings me to a similar discussion.“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” I believe this entirely. Have you ever heard of “The Secret”? A few months ago I was hanging out with a few friends. My friend brought this dvd over for us to watch, claiming it really changed the way she thought, and engaged in her daily life. We watched “The Secret“, and honestly it makes you think in such a different manner. I feel as though I have used the secret in many situations, and never realized it. Check out the link and even the dvd if you are up for it. It is kind of freaky at first, mind boggling.
Sorry for the ramblin’… Here’s what I have been up to.
My summer officially started about two weeks ago! Thank you Pitt for being so schedule friendly, it really is great getting out a few weeks earlier than then other colleges around. I have been trying to plan out my summer, but it’s not lookin’ so summer-ish. I just joined a new gym…and I am loving it! I have been enjoying some Ah-mazing power yoga classes, some sculpting and kickboxing classes as well. I hate working out alone, but love the classes so I’m diggin’ this gym!
Today I started one of my internships which is at a local radio station. I’ll be working in the promotions department. I am SO pumped for this experience. Today all 14 interns got together and scheduled our office hours/events, met the peeps in charge, went over the to-do’s and not-to-do’s and just got to know each other. Everyone is so nice and I can’t wait for my official start on Wednesday. I’m excited for this internship because I want to work in the music industry, doing PR work and some day hopefully having my own record label (yes high hopes, but I’ve got “The Secret”, right 😉
My second internship starts Friday. Yes, I will be juggling two internships and a social life this summer, we will see how this pans out. I am also really excited to start this because it’s on the quite the opposite. I will be interning at an Engineering Company in the Magazine department. I’ll be working this internship on Monday, Tuesday and Friday and then Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday will be spent at the radio station.
Hope you are all having an amazing start to summer!
