Today was the first day of my Summer “internship” at my New Jersey district’s assemblyman’s office. I say “internship” because it is more of a volunteer position since I’ll only be going once a week for 4 and a half hours. But that’s okay, they are calling it an internship so I will play along. As you know I am hoping to go to college in DC and major in government or international relations. This internship is a great way to show colleges that I’m interested in that general field. Even though this is not the exact area of government I’d like to get into to; you have to start somewhere, so here I am!
I woke-up today at 4:20am, did my morning warm-up and some Platies leg work, push-ups, and calves. Then I fueled with some Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats! The classic and easy breakfast to prep the night before so you can grab-and-go on a busy morning! I’m amping mine up with extra protein for more staying power and of course, there must be chocolate!
Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats
- Combine all your ingredients in a mason jar, glass, or bowl.
- Mix and set in the fridge overnight.
- Enjoy cold the next morning, or you can even heat it up (just add some more liquid)!
I got dressed up in my favorite orange dress from Express, a black blazer from Victoria’s Secret, and my Franco Sarto black wedges! When I got to the office I learned that the girl I was supposed to be working with was out! So, the Chief of staff started me out at a desk and told me to read through the NJ legislature site and get familiar the whole political process of a state government, bills NJ has passed, members of the congress, etc. After, I made up an Excel sheet of local events coming up in the next couple of months for possible appearances for the Assemblymen.
Here’s to hoping next week will be a bit more interesting! I hope your day was more fulfilling and you had a fabulous breakfast (that always makes any day worth it, right?) See you tomorrow with some end of the week links!
So tell me:
+ Have you ever done an unpaid Internship? How was it?
+ Do you make overnight oats often?
