I arrived at the Logan Airport in Boston on Saturday at around 6pm. I was beyond nervous to be in a different city, without knowing a soul. As scared as I was I sucked it up and made my way to the cab area where I would be taking a 20 minute ride to Cambridge - the place I would call home for the next three months. I walked around the first night but was too tired and decided to head home. My first morning here I woke up at 9am! Yeah...wrong. It was nine in El Paso. Apparently you don't get used to the two hour difference immediately. Grocery shopping proved to be a challenge since I didn't know where anything was. I still don't. Last night my brother came into town to visit and make sure I was settling in smoothly and we both got lost for over an hour trying to find that same grocery store I had gone to the previous day. Needless to say we never found it.
Aside from that yesterday was my first day at my new internship. Even with just one day I can say that I am absolutely in love with it. I will be working along three other interns and I am very excited to have been chosen for this opportunity. They really haven't explained in detail what we will be doing but what I got from yesterday is that we will basically be helping up and coming businesses by young entrepreneurs succeed and just spread the word. The 28 new companies are already getting into whole foods thanks to youth trade and that is definitely a big feat. Most of these companies are very ecofriendly and I really like that. Theirs one in particular that struck my fancy and would love to work with. Perfect Fuel. A company that makes chocolate energy bars without the crash that other energy bars or drinks give you. The creater of the company (Nick) is so driven and so persistent its infectious. Just hearing him speak makes me want to get up and start working.
For now that's all their is to say about Cambridge. The place is beautiful of course. It has been raining since yesterday and although a bit chilly for what I'm used to I am definitely not complaining. If this is a foreshadowing of what my summer is going to be like, I can't wait for the adventure.
