July 25th – 28th
This was my final week at SWX. While I’m sad to leave, I’m glad I made the friends and connections I did and I’m excited to see what comes in the future.
Tasks I worked on: create VASP patch design, create visual for Eyefluence glasses, clean out storage, upload important work for future use, order more EASI-Imp patches.
July 18th – 21st
Sometimes adults can act just like teenagers. When we were given feedback from a recent event, one individual put “some participants hogged the mic the whole time”. Sounds just like high school.
Tasks I worked on: create Pecha Kucha presentation, create invitation, set up folders for event, start creating a VASP patch design, update our Welcome Packet, create map of facility, create acronyms list.
July 11th – 14th
First impressions are sometimes very important. When interviewing for a new position make sure you are dressed appropriately and present yourself positively.
…Also don’t wear your sunglasses on your head the whole time.
Tasks I worked on: scanning and sorting bills, adjust EASI-Imp patch, order patches, learn MailChimp, make name badges, organize cords.
July 5th – 7th
It was a short week.
Tasks I took on: created RSVP contact list, created slideshow for TVs up front, update New Employee checklist, general office work.
June 27th – July 1st
Tasks I took on: updating website calendar, creating invitations, scanning bills, BIPS project summary, design a Gris-Gris for Coquette Anomaly, organize storage closet, prize challenge research, RAPPS gantt chart.
June 20th – 23rd
As a person with pretty difficult anxiety, I’ve found that I don’t hate mundane, organizational office work. I find copying bills, filling in excel sheets, making names tags, etc. kinda of relaxing. With tasks I know I can’t mess up, I feel less pressure and am usually more efficient with them. They keep my stressing mind occupied without cluttering it further. Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy projects that use my areas of skill and creativity, but I don’t mind helping out with the simpler things.

Tasks I took on: created layout of office space, research women in African cities for Coquette Anomaly, created vignette and summary slides for FOSOV project, designed company pen, created over 180 names badges for event, organized and noted supply inventory, created event invitations.
June 6th – 9th
Something I’ve found I need to work on is narrowing my focus with ideas or the extension of projects.
Tasks I took on: fill in at the front desk, create flag certificate, branding for a “sorority”, design intern Tshirt, organize roster list for SSE event.
