Work vs. Play: Why should you have to pick a side?

This blog entry was written by Caitlyn Ewals, a campus ambassador from The University of Louisville.

Saying the life of an intern is a busy one is a complete understatement. When looking at all of the work you are expected to do it might seem like there will never be anytime for fun…that is where you are wrong! Here are some quick tips on how to have the most fun while completing your internship.
1) Manage your time: the more work you get done at work, the less you have to take up all of your free time. Make sure that you are getting as much done during the day so you can have more free time for yourself!
2) Become friends with your co-workers: most of the time work seems like work because you are doing it all by yourself, or with people that you only know because you work in the same office. Switch it up and become friends with your co-workers so that when you are helping each other with work projects even the work seems like fun!
3) Find the fun in your work: Chances are you decided to apply for your internship because it is something you are thinking about pursuing in the future. If this is true it should be easy to find the fun in your daily routines! Sometimes you just might be able to see your work as fun itself!
These are just a few tips that can help you balance out the fun in your work vs. play battle! Hopefully these help the play outweigh the work in your internship!
