the first week

last week was my first full week of everything.

i started my internship on monday {i'm working monday, wednesday, and friday}.

and had my monday night class for the first time.

i started my first grad classes on wednesday and thursday.

and the whole week wore me out.

we did a lot of training at my internship. there are 4 tax interns in total. i'm really glad there are other interns so i don't feel like i'm the only one. the other girl tax intern has never done any tax stuff before {like me}, so we're in the same boat. the other 2 guys have, so they know more of what they're doing. but hopefully the training will just stay in my brain and i'll get the hang of it!

we moved to our desks on friday afternoon, so yesterday we started doing practice tax returns all by ourselves. luckily i'm close to the other tax people, so i was able to ask lots questions {and i have lots!}

my first grad classes went really well. wednesday night is a tax class taught by my favorite teacher, so i'm actually excited about that. and thursday is audit, which i don't like. but i had the teacher last semester and he's really nice, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

i also have friends in both classes, so that makes it a lot better.

the biggest adjustment i've had to make is not seeing addison very much. since i have 3 night classes, it means i'm not seeing her before she goes to bed those 3 nights. i missed her a lot last week and i know that will continue. grad classes are only 10 weeks, so once they're over i'll get to see her 2 more nights a week, which will be much better. i know this is for the best and will definitely be worth it in the end.

i'm officially becoming a big girl.

Yea for the internship! I saw your mom the other day at Patrick's (and her) office and she said it was going well! That's so exciting! You'll love it...that was probably one of my favorite times in my career!
