Hey peeps!! Oka so every now and then I will share some internship anecdotes with you...Here goes my first:
Oka so today as I sat peacefully at my desk my worst nightmare came true! My boss asked me to calculate ratios and percentages of ethnicity and gender for a project we are working on. She asked me to do math....math! You guys know very well math is not one of my strong points.
I automatically freaked out but maintained my cool because I did not want her to sense my fear. To top things off my Internet was down so I wasn't able to google percentages and ratios. I felt like I was taking the GRE all over again! I was even being timed because she needed those numbers for a meeting in like 15 mins.
Anyways, I took a few deep breaths, sucked it up, kept a straight face, used some brain activity and jumped right into those numbers. Fifteen minutes and lots of scribbling later I reported the numbers successfully!! I'm glad to report that I overcame my fear of ratios and percentages. I even overachieved and gave her more numbers than what she really needed...wheeww, it was a close call!
Miss u guys!! xoxo
