In January 2013, following several harsh semesters of Musical Theatre and Elementary Education, I took a chance and experimented with a brand new program at FSCJ, Converged Communications. Though I didn’t really know what Converged Communications meant, after one week of classes and an introduction to blogging for businesses, I didn’t care!

“You are always so happy! Why are you always so happy?” Susan Beddingfield, the Accounting Assistant for the Florida Theatre, said this to me a few days ago and at the time I just smiled in reply. Today, while making an outline for my first internship report for the summer of 2014, I realized that one of the reasons I am so happy is because this Converged Communications internship could not have been more perfect.

Three of the sweetest and most underappreciated things in life are: Receiving a card in the mail. (I mean a REAL handwritten birthday or Christmas card! How awesome is that?!) BREAKFAST (What an honor to be THE most important meal … Continue reading
