Working 8 hour shifts for an office job actually requires a lot more energy than it may seem. I mean, you're just sitting most of time so, in theory, you're conserving energy right?
As anyone who has worked a Monday through Friday, 40 hr/week job can tell you, it can get tiring very quickly. As an intern you may not have to work all 5 days but you may experience the same energy drain.
What can you do?
You can start munching on smart snacks throughout the day! I don't mean doughnuts, candy, or chips. I'm talking about dried fruits, pretzels, and nuts. These smart snacks will keep your metabolism up which helps you to remain focused and effective at work!
Create your own trail mix.
You don't need to go out and purchase a pre-packaged trail mix. Instead, just visit your favorite food store and buy the smart snacks you want individually, then you can go home and get creative! This way you can keep your personal trail mix experience exciting, changing up the ingredients each day or week!
Jewel's Random TidBits - My personal favorite mix includes pretzel sticks, craisins aka dried cranberries, and honey roasted cashews. Popcorn also works as a smart snack as long as it's not heavily buttered!
In my continuous pursuit to better myself and expand my technical knowledge base, I've decided to spend some time this summer to break into web programming!
As an engineering student, I have been able to develop skills in several programming languages and I really do advocate choosing at least one and learning the basics. Even if you don't plan to program anything in the entire span of your career, programming helps you to sharpen your problem-solving skill set which is invaluable in any career!

Hello there wonderful reader.
It's been almost two months since my last post! My excuse? I don't have one. HOWEVER, in the past two months I've experienced so many things that have truly inspired me more than ever to start a business (...or two!).
While thinking of how much of a reward starting my own businesses will be, I began to think of what kinds of statements I want them to make.
You know, everything you do makes a statement - so do something good and make it great.
I want my businesses to make unique statements through their brands. This brought me to think of Heinz Tomato Ketchup. When I think of ketchup, I think of Heinz. That's what I want for my businesses! Yes, there may be competition but my goal is for my brands to be so great that customers automatically think of us when they think of our industries.
It is possible. Anything is possible.
