The guy that I had been emailing a week or so ago about an internship finally got back to me today! He decided to hire me. :D

I've already put in my two weeks at Arby's. Since the managers there (except maybe one or two <3) are rude for no reason and extremely immature despite their ages, I was expecting them to give me a hard time about suddenly quitting in two weeks, but they were surprisingly nice about it and congratulated me and such. Not working at Arby's is going to be AWESOME. XD Also my starting pay is going to be almost 2 dollars more than my pay at my current job. woot.

Anywhoo, as today was the last day of school there were lots of snacks out in the hallway :D I stocked up on snacks and soda and watched Let's Play Silent Hill on youtube. There were many lulz. <3 Also, some guys in my class brought a Xbox 360 and a Wii. We played Smash Brothers Brawl, Team Fortress 2 and Zelda. :D

On a random note, my support specialist on Killing Floor is almost level 4. AWESOME 8D. I also found servers where there are over 50 people playing at once, as opposed to the normal 6 people playing at once.

I've also really been getting into anime again. Started watching Kuroshitsuji (omg greil is so lol. also loving the undertaker), Pandora Hearts (OH MY GOD GIL IS SO ADORABLE :|), FMA: Brotherhood (stfu fullmetal alchemist is a guilty pleasure of mine), and continuing to watch One Piece (up to episode 401, ftw!) :D

I've been really busy for the past several days, which is why I haven't been posting as much. You see, I ended up making a Wordpress theme for this lady in my class. She is getting paid to make a company's website, but she's not very good at designing, so she thought she'd go out and find her a WP theme to use. I ended up going to her house to help her get her content sorted out and such. And, oh my lord, the WP theme she was going to use was freaking HIDEOUS and impossible to customize, with all the images and such. So I turned to her and said, "You know, I could most definitely make a WP theme from scratch for you that's loads better than this." And that's what I did. I got $50 out of it. :p

Anywho, today at school we had an industry panel, where people from the web industry sat and we asked them questions and such. And it was super interesting. I was so into it the entire time. I was actually sad when the bell rang. :(

Anyways, the guy who I've been emailing for the past couple of days about a internship was there, so we chatted and he said to call him this afternoon. I did that, and then he asked if I could email him some code samples. He also asked when I'd be able to start, how many hours I'd like to work, and said that so far, things are looking very good! I'm excited. I can't wait until he emails me back again. If things go well, I'll never have to work at Arby's again. <3

I got an email back :D


Thanks for the quick response back. I believe I’ll actually be over at Francis Tuttle this upcoming Wednesday so if you’re there – great I’d love to meet you. I’ll be meeting there at the advisory committee.

This is indeed a paid internship and in terms of hours – we are more than open. 30-40 hours is completely doable and even more if you would like. We have many different areas and diverse clients so the skill sets across the company are extremely varied.

When are you available for a call? I’d love to discuss more of this and answer any questions you may have.

Thanks.


He seems pretty interested. :D

 Today I finally got around to finishing my portfolio, along with my resume. My teacher helped me form a proper email to send to companies, so I could apply for internships there. Not even 20 minutes after my first email was sent, I got an email back from ONEsite, saying that they're impressed with my understanding of web design, and asked how many hours I'd be willing to work, was I more familiar with coding or visual aspects of web design, etc etc.

I emailed them back about an hour ago, so now I'm just waiting to hear back from them again. I hope I can get an interview. :)
