During my time at my internship I got into a program, had to ask for time off, and had no idea how to go about it. I feel like asking for time off is a nerve racking experience for most. You have to think about is my reason important enough? Will I have to make…

Friends in the Workplace

When I started to work at my internship I was very anxious. A lot of the people I was around were accomplished artists and creatives that I had admired for a very long time. Meanwhile the only recognized artwork I had was a framed drawing from my oil period on display in my parent’s basement.…
