The final week of my internship went out like a lion. There were a lot of things to keep us busy - mid-week, we had a presentation to give to stakeholders in the project, and at the end of the week, we had a deliverable due.
The good news is that we didn't crunch like we did two weeks prior to get the deliverable in. The bad news is that we still did, a tiny bit - the last day before the deliverable was due turned into a very late night. However, we as a team of producers really pulled it together and managed to (or were forced to) learn a whole lot of new things to get the mission in on time. That's a win in my book!
The presentation was a different kind of challenge - we had a nice presentation put together, but it was delivered in an open-forum-style atmosphere, and it turned into a long Q&A session, which is always difficult to manage. However, the stakeholders present seemed to be generally satisfied with the proceedings, and ultimately, that's a pretty good measure of success. We definitely came away with some things to work on and some things to try out, and I think it'll be good to get those into place.
This is also, as mentioned above, my last week. After five months - which has just flown by - I'll be done with this internship. I graduate this week, and I'll hopefully be working somewhere soon. I can't say with 100% certainty where, but it should pan out in the next couple of weeks. And so, to paraphrase the great halfling poet: though five months is too short a time to write for you - this is the END. I am going now. GOODBYE!
