Today I start my new internship at Seneca Women and I am beyond excited to be working for this amazing organization. It's a huge time commitment, but it's totally worth it and I couldn't be happier. If you don't know much about the organization, check out their website and social media, and don't forget to read the book that started it all (links below, including my book review of Fast Forward by cofounders Melanne Verveer and Kim Azzarelli).
As you can tell from the title of this post, I will be talking about the end of my sophomore year of college, my first semester at Boston University, and my plans for this summer.
First, the end of school was on a relatively high note. I wasn't stressed by my exams, finished them all quickly, got good grades on my final papers, and in my classes in general. Being in Boston was such a different experience than being in Waltham and I'm so glad I decided to transfer, even though it was scary at first.
Second, what next?
I've officially had 3 of my 4 classes this semester, and I think it's going to be a good year. I already have a bunch of homework, which I'll be diving into once I'm done writing this blog post. I have 1 English class, 1 Psychology class, 1 Astronomy class (I needed a natural science credit), and 1 Women's Studies class (which is the one I haven't yet had). I registered for these classes a few days ago, and am very pleased with all of them—which means I won't be dealing with the headache of adding or dropping classes like many other students.
If you've started school recently, how is your homework load? Is it already piling up? Or are your professors easing you into it?
Yes, you read that correctly. I've clearly lost my mind because for the rest of this month, I will have 3 internships simultaneously. The past 2 you've heard about in a previous blog post, but the new one is as an editorial intern for Filles Vertes Publishing, LLC. Side note: "filled vertes" is French for "green girls" which just makes me think of Elphaba from one of my favorite musicals, Wicked. Which I'm so excited about because as good as I've gotten at PR thanks to being a PA to Melissa A. Petreshock, and now as a PR intern at Inklings Literary Agency, becoming an editor in a publishing house is my dream job.
My responsibilities at FVP will include reading manuscripts (yay, I get to read fun stories in addition to the no-doubt endless reading I'll have for HW—I'm not being facetious here, I'm excited that by this being part of a job, I'll have to make time for reading fiction) and providing feedback. Like I said above, this is my dream job, and to have a go at it so early in life is AWESOME SAUCE.
I've technically been doing this since December 1, 2016, but since I've kept up the habit (something I wasn't positive my perfectionism would allow), I figured I can now talk about it.
I cannot begin to say how helpful this system has been to let me see where my time goes, track my homework, working, and writing hours (the last of which has been very little so far, but I'm looking to change that). The to-do lists are a life-saver and deciding on the weekly layout is always fun. The best part? It provides some much-needed structure after I hit rock bottom in my freshman year of college.

I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
