I hope you all had a restful and happy summer! I know I did…well I don’t know about restful as much as happy, but I had a busy (but GREAT) summer! I did so many amazing things…I had the opportunity to go back to Italy with my parents, I took classes in Washington D.C., went camping a lot, got an internship at an interpreting agency on Long Island…it was great!
I am happy to be back at RIT though, and the time is already flying. In your senior year in the interpreting program you are assigned a mentor, and I have the pleasure of doing my practicum (what we call an internship) at the Department of Access Services on campus. It is fabulous. I have the ability to observe my mentor in some great classes, and I even get to do some interpreting (with her support of course). I’ll talk more about that in future posts.
Right now I am focused on my school and trying to figure things out as a senior (it still feels weird calling myself that) after a very hectic summer. I just filled out my application for graduation…what a scary thought. Its funny, my parents keep asking me to find out the dates and details for graduation…when it’s like the last thing I want to think about. I can’t imagine leaving this place that I have called home for four years. Its crazy that I have entered my last year as an undergrad student in the ASLIE program.
Anyway, enough with the sad thoughts, I still have plenty to look forward to! I’ll be sure to keep you posted!
