Sometimes people ask me, "Michael, you seem like you have it all. You're the editor of the paper, you smell super good, and not only do all the deans in Eustis know you by first name, but so do all the bartenders at the pub. How could it get any better?"
I will tell you how it gets better: the summer internship. After spending all year working on such intellectually taxing projects as studying Shakespeare and solving multivariable equations, not to mention deftly managing a staff of over 30 of my peers through an agressive printing schedule, I felt like I was ready to take on the world. And what has the world thrown at me this summer?
Arts and crafts. The other interns, the assistants and I have spent the last several weeks ignoring our real work and designing an over-the-top hole for the annual intra-office mini golf tournament. Each department has to decorate their space with a different show theme. We chose Hawaii 5-0.
Check out the pictures here. We've got everything - tiki bar with several drink options (I'll let you in on a secret: no matter what you order you get Hawaiian Punch mixed with 7 Up), a volcano, an iPad playing the sales presentation the department made when we sold it into syndication (I use "we" loosely there). We even had the theme song playing on a loop. Boom. Multi-media Hawaii 5-0 in your grillmix.
**I would like to personally thank my father for waking up every day and working hard so that I have the financial security to pursue my dreams, whatever they may be. Mom, maybe don't show him this blog.
