NOTE: Due to my inactivity on the blog, there will be continuous posts about my experiences at Reach as an intern as well as other adventures for the next few days. Stay tuned!
Summer work. Gone are the late nights and endless boredom, replaced with 6:30am alarms and busy Saturdays instead. Unintentionally, I signed myself up for 40 hour workweeks, working at Reach during the week and babysitting full-time during Saturdays and some weeknights.
By the time this post is published, the summer session at Reach has already ended. 5 weeks of interning would have already flown by, and I would only be left with three weeks of summer to get myself together before starting my sophomore year at Macalester.
Let's rewind back to the field trips that I took along with the Reach students...
Field Trip #1: Stone Mountain
Field Trip #2: Oakland Cemetery
For those who are not native Atlantans or Georgians, the Oakland Cemetery might not be a place that is familiar. Although a cemetery seems like the last place to visit when traveling, it contains the history of the people that once lived. I'd like to think that the dead like to see visitors who are interested in their past lives (Oakland Cemetery actually offers various themed tours about its "residents"). When I was standing amongst the graves, I wondered about the lives of each person. What were their lives like decades ago? What would they think about our country now?
