As my journey at INTERNeX comes to an end, it’s time for my goodbye post and I’ll try to keep it as least sappy as possible.
But, where do I start? The past 5 months here at INTERNeX has an incredible adventure and that is an understatement. I have experienced so much more than I could have asked for when I first started here in September.
To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect. Having lived here my entire life, I especially didn’t expect that I would learn so much more about Vancouver than what I already know. I guess when you live here, you tend to do the same things and have the same routine all the time. I now have a new appreciation for what a beautiful and vibrant city Vancouver actually is.
INTERNeX has also taught me not to be afraid and just go for whatever comes my way. I’m not the most daring person ever, but INTERNeX has certainly changed that. Whether it was tacking different tasks at the office, jumping out of an airplane or dancing on the frozen Lake Louise, I can say that it was all worth it. Being put in different situations and doing things I’ve never done before has allowed me to grow up enormously.
Finally, everyone I have met here through INTERNeX has been nothing, but the best. To everyone in the office, thanks for all the help and support you have provided and for opening up your lives and company to me. To everyone I’ve met through the orientations, trips and crazy pub nights, it’s been so great to make all these special memories and friendships with y’all, and really, I’ve learnt that you Europeans know how to party. So when I visit Europe, it’s your turn to show me around, okay?
Since I am not actually leaving Vancouver, this is more like a see you later! However, my life will probably be a lot less exciting not being on the PR team, but it’s time for me to start a new phrase and discover new things. As Taylor Swift once said, “This is a new year. A new beginning. And things will change.” Like I said, not to get sappy or anything.
