This is my first blog ever so bare with me (although I spend countless hours on the computer, I rarely voice my opinion online). My first few weeks here in bambooland have been a lot of fun and quite a bit of work. I’m making the commute from north OC so I get to share the 5 with 123,323,411,238 of my best friends honking their horns at ungodly hours that I’m not used to being awake at.
Although it is a lot of time and work, I love it. I graduated from CSUF in May and since then I have not had anything to do during the day except sleep, surf, and travel. I spent 6 weeks in New Zealand, 3 months in Australia, and 3 weeks in Bali after I graduated. I was just traveling and surfing and thinking that when I came back I would somehow magically get an awesome job in the action sports industry where I could still sleep, surf, and travel. Why I thought my little degree would get me a dream job is beyond me.
When this internship came along, it seemed like an awesome chance to get my feet wet in the industry and see how the real world works. Although they do a great job of structuring the intern program, they don’t baby you. You are expected to set you own lofty goals and follow through with everything you set. With the help of my awesome fellow interns I will be focusing on direct model sales, marketing the website, and keep our customers happy.
Stoked on life ☺
