I hate my mad skills [Mar. 12th, 2007|04:13 pm]
I hate having the world's most boring, though still essential, skill set. I hate that I am doing it as an internship while I go to school to do something better. I hate that it comes so naturally to me, while anything that is cooler, but should be simpler, is so, so hard.

I would rather die than do this. I would rather gouge out my eyes, ears, nose, and tongue, and live the rest of my life senseless. But because this is an internship, a role meant to "pad my transcript," I will take it like a bitch and ask for seconds.

I am truly an idiot savant, because I was an idiot when choosing where to posses savant like powers.

Try not to worry about it too much. If you honestly like the direction you are going, focus on that. Remember that you can spin things pretty much any direction after you are done. Even if you had an internship in the department you wanted, you still wouldn't be doing anything besides intern work. Everyone knows that. Just talk about the things you've learned. Try to get tours of places as often as you can, things like that. I can't tell you how many times the itty bitty bit I know about how the high bays or the CATR has came in handy. People like hearing about that stuff. Interviews are about flash not substance. :)
