An excerpt from my Week 9 & 10 reflection email to my academic advisor:
As I’m wrapping up my ten weeks at HabitAware, I’m becoming more aware (pun intended) of the transitional phase between one stage to another, in my life and in HabitAware’s “life.” This past week, I finished writing blog posts for the HabitAware blog, with a dedicated blog post to sum up my entire summer experience with the company. I’m also in the process of contacting HabitAware’s pre-order customers one last time. In the ten weeks that I’ve been a part of the team, the core team has grown to accommodate company growth: a sales representative for the East Coast area, a friend of the team to help with customer service, and an exclusive distributor for Keen bracelets in Australia. Product-wise, we are reaching the end of the inventory from the first production run and two members of the team are leaving for Shenzhen, China again to supervise the second production run, with new designs and upgrades to our product. A few days ago, I joined the rest of the team to look at potential office space for September so that we can finally expand.

In a previous post, Jennifer and I decided on exploring Duluth on a daylong road trip. Little did we know that we would end up going on 3 road trips in 3 weeks.
A day into the 4th of July weekend, Jennifer and I last minute decided to road trip ALL THE WAY back to Waukegan, IL (about a 7-8 hour drive including breaks) to spend 2 days in Waukegan and 1 day in Chicago. We began the drive at precisely 6:15am (because Starbucks opened at 6am - we needed caffeine), stopped 3 times along the way, and arrived in the driveway of Jennifer's home at 1:30pm.
As I have mentioned in a previous post, I am currently one of thirteen students participating in the MacNest program at Macalester, where students are summer interns for a local Twin Cities startup for ten weeks as part of a one-credit internship. All of us reside in the Summit House on campus for the duration of the summer and are expected to to form a community where we share our knowledge and experiences organically.
So many Macalester students visit Duluth on a weekend trip sometime during their four years, so Jennifer and I set out to do it all in less than 12 hours past Saturday. We tried to do every free activity and ended up spending $60 total between the two of us for brunch, dinner, parking, and gas.
