Intrigued by Campbell’s perspective of presenting stories of the past to modern-day people, I quickly ended up on the Met Museum’s website, scrolling through its contents and almost falling off my bed in excitement.
The best place to chat with other interns on the Warner Brothers lot is in the 9am coffee line at Starbucks. There I have the opportunity to talk to other students my age who spend their days, like I do, sitting in conference rooms reading script coverage, driving to odd locations all over the city performing personal runs for the big boss man, and occasionally answering the phone to find some Hollywood big shot on the other end (which is honestly the most terrifying part of the job)… ah the joys of being an unpaid, Hollywood intern.
I just returned to “civilization”, after spending a week hanging out with a bunch of Malaysian indigenous kids in the middle of nowhere …
There’s no better feeling than lying on the grass of the President’s Lawn after finals week has wrapped up. The pressure of examinations and final projects has faded into distant memory and the excitement of the summer is rolling on in. That being said, it’s been a really exciting semester! I joined TEMS, the Tufts EMS team on campus and recently began working shifts.
Bonjour from Talloires, my home for the next month and a half! For those who don’t know, Tufts has a fourth campus in Talloires, a tiny village in the French Alps. The building here is an 11th century priory, one of the buildings used in a monastery, and it is every bit as beautiful as it sounds. I’ve been looking forward to coming here since I first applied to the program. I’ve had friends tell me that this was the best thing they’ve done at Tufts, and now I’m able to try it for myself. While I’m here, I’m taking a course on the Romans and the Gauls with Professor Hitchner, and a class on Non-fiction Writing with Professor Ullman, but my real job is to just learn about French culture and enjoy the natural beauty of this place.
