Sun Staff Intern
NORWICH – In my almost three-month stay at The Evening Sun, I have not been asked to do any embarrassing tasks as an intern. In fact, I didn’t even fetch the coffee until the opening of Dunkin’ Donuts when I was there at 5 a.m. I thought to myself that this must be the best internship ever. I’m allowed to write about what I want. They trust me to make phone calls and do interviews, and they even liked my “Punching the Clock” article. I thought I had it made, until the fair waltzed in to town and I was lucky enough to be assigned a task with Sun Staff Writer Jessica Lewis.
Now granted, at the age of 20 some may say my work experience is limited. Even so, I do not think it is normal for your boss to hand you a 20 dollar bill and assign you to spend it at the fair. The task was to be able to do as much as possible without going over $20 between Jessica and I. This was obviously going to be fun.
