Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

May has officially arrived!! It is pretty crazy how fast my time here has gone so far. I have definitely been keeping busy between The Corndog Kickoff and Iowan of the Day program. I might add that it is not too late to donate! More and more donations are piling in each day. Being a part of the "behind-the-scenes" work of such a big event has been pretty amazing, not to mention the variety of items and unique ideas that come with it. I'm anxious to see it all fall together. The event will be held on Saturday, July 13- we hope to see you there!

In the meantime, I will be finishing up my junior year of college in a couple weeks. Two other interns will also be joining us soon! You will more than likely be hearing from them once they are here and settled in. It's been quite the ride so far. If I had to share with them some of the most valuable things I've learned, it would be right along these lines...

  • Organization is key- to do lists are life savers.
  • Think outside the box- there's generally a certain way to do things, but add your own personal touch
  • Utilize your resources- when in doubt, ask someone. Or google it.
  • Take initiative- don't wait for someone to tell you to do something, just do it!

I'm sure this list will be at least twice as big by the end of the fair! Until next time.
