We all reach that point – that point where what you’re studying starts to really seem pointless and your future is looking like… Well… you don’t know – what is my future? Where will I be?

I’m doing an elective this semester called AMB310 Internship, and we’re required to write a journal throughout the semester detailing our experiences with sourcing and working in an internship of our choosing.

I’ve been AFB (away from blog) for basically the whole semester and that is due to me suffering from something I would like to call the Second Year Slump. It could manifest itself as a First, Third or Final Year Slump, but thankfully not everyone experiences it, and I sincerely hope it doesn’t affect you.
