Time Really Does Fly When You Are Having Fun!
Yes, summer is almost over and we have about 45 days of summer left. For some, this is rather unfortunate and for the new students moving on campus who cannot wait you have about 40 days lefts . Trust me I know new students. This summer has literally flew by, I guess the expression “time flies when your having fun” is a reality especially in my life.
This summer has been one of the most productive summers yet. I have been a New Student Orientation Leader meeting and assisting the new Rockets around, as well as working at the City of Toledo Prosecutors Office as an Intern. No matter how many Rocket Launch days we have in a row, or how many times I have to leader the Rocket Game Show, or speaking to students and parents/ guests about my experiences and the abundant resources on campus, there is nothing more rewarding than helping the new students. The thing that keeps me going is when people see me on campus and say “I remember you from Rocket Launch and when you spoke about communicating with my family and parents you were right” or “when parents say you and the staff did an amazing job today”! Unfortunately, we have about 10 days left in total !
On the days, in which, I was not in the Student Union working Rocket Launch. I was at the Toledo Municipal Court for my internship with the City of Toledo Prosecutors Office. This has been such an amazing experience. Out of all the interns, I am the only undergraduate student. I have literally gotten a first hand look inside the legal and justice system. Each day in the office is never the same, sometimes I am in court assisting with plea deals, or in the office interviewing citizens who file police reports. I also fill discovery requests, fill out Precipe forms for subpoenas, file motions and write out warrants for peoples arrest. Along all those possible tasks, I am gaining knowledge from both the Prosecutors about the law and the other interns who are law students in regards to Law School. And this summer I seen my first ever jury trial. These experiences have been quite rewarding. All this information I have received people do not receive until they are at least in Law School. So with that being said this serves as an excellent motivator to keep my grades up and involvement.
Furthermore, this summer has flew by because I have been having fun! Although, many days I am exhausted and I do not have a break sometimes until Sunday. I would not change any of these experiences for the world!
To my fellow Rockets, enjoy the last days of your summer! See you in August!
