Biking Around Campus, Internships, and Smoothies

Hi guys! My name is Skip Flanagan, and I’m a third-year Psychology major with a minor in Exercise Science. I also play baseball for the Tigers! Some guys call me Flamingo, because they mock my tiny calves, and apparently it also rhymes with my last name. This semester has been a wild one for me, I’ve been going back and forth with baseball and my new internship that I started this fall as my co-op.

Fresh off the Homecoming weekend, my daily routine has consisted of biking around campus, then driving to my internship in Webster (a suburb north of Rochester), and then downing a chocolate protein smoothie before I hit the hay. As for my internship, I met my boss when he was training the baseball team last year, and I really liked what he was doing because I’m an aspiring sports psychologist. So I asked him if I could somehow work for him. One thing led to another, and I now am interning for him at Powercore Athletics. It has been a blast, I meet new people everyday, and I am always learning something new.

Unfortunately, I realized that I’m a little behind on my hours at work, so I’m picking up some extra hours this week. So I’m working extra early now, and I find myself plopping in my cozy couch in the dungeon that my roommate and I call an apartment. I’m gonna grab some more food and then it’s lights out! Have a great Week 8 everyone!

Flamingo out.
