Ambiguity in the Office

I have almost finished my third week in Toronto and I really feel like I am settling into my new home. Thus far, I am really enjoying my internship placement and it’s never a dull day on the job. Currently, most of my time at my internship has been spent working with Pycap’s client, Coin…

Meeting the Family

With another week down the bus ride to the Stacks Pharmacy Support Office in Finglas is feeling less like a fun excursion into Dublin and more like a commute. That’s how things are starting to go as the internship progresses, the once constant training is turning into me doing work by myself. This provides both…

Week 5

 I think my Pitt experience has been unique in preparing me for this experience – I have been able to use what I have learned academically as well as in my extracurriculars to be successful for this internship. Most notably, my job description for this internship does not exactly align perfectly with my academic experience-being…

Few Weeks in London!

Hi all!! I have now been living in London for a little over 3 weeks now, and it has completely exceeded my expectations.  The people are super friendly, for the most part, and the weather has actually been really nice, besides a few days of cold rain.  Let me tell y’all a little bit about…

Berlin to Munich

This week I traveled to Nuremburg to another real estate site for my internship. It was only a day trip which meant we were up super early to get on the train for three hours and then back on the train that night for another 3 hours. Luckily this time we only had to visit…

A Month Away

Before I left the United States on May 13, I told myself, “This is going to be the fastest two months of my life.” A month later, I can say with confidence that this the truth. I cannot believe it has been over a month now since we first landed in Berlin. I have seen…

Week 5- Critical Reflection on Skills and Competencies

We have now passed the halfway mark through the program and the time is flying by. I think this is because I am having such a good time and I’m so busy. There is so much to do in Berlin, so there is always something to do to keep yourself from being bored. I think…

Learning the History

My experience in Berlin has definitely peaked with high adventures but also mellowed out with more relaxed periods or weeks.  This past week was spent more on the relaxing side of the specturium. Since arriving in Berlin each weekend I have been here I have spent in another location, including France and Prague.  As much…
