WHAT I LEARNED FROM MY INTERNSHIP
as an intern for Elevation Partners, a food and beverage marketing / advertising agency, i have learned quite a lot of things that are new to me. things that are "easier said than done" those kinds. people have always thought that interning is rough, tough, and very scary. not for me, fortunately. i did enjoy my internship and learned a tad bit more about the value of reality (by this i'm referring to moolahh moolah moolah - that's money, btw! HAHAHA!). and all i can say is, experience truly is the best teacher!
if you have been following me on instagram and snapchat: paulineang (add me up, love!) then you might already know what i was busy with the past few weeks. and yes, it's all about this post! lol i was on my internship! forgive me for my long invisibility here in our space.
disclaimer: ^here are some of the skills and values that i have learned in a nutshell. pictures might not be of good quality because they are all taken using my iphone throughout my internship days.
1. work is fun
i've never thought of being part of an advertising agency (which, to be honest, i've never really known about until now). what i had in mind was only "a work that is not boring and is my passion." and now here i am, finding a complete package of what was only in mind before. one major learning from my EP internship is that work can both be fun and passionately done. love what you do because this world will not be siding with you all the time. thence, getting to our next value learning : attitude.
2. attitude matters most
a workmate, kat, told me before that what matters most is our attitude. it actually matters more than skills! everything will not be given as you like it to be, but as long as you have the right attitude, you'll survive. love what is given to you. put all your heart and passion into it and then you'll know, what it feels like working in EP. HAHAHA i was serious about that though. but back to my main point - put all your heart and passion into it and then you'll know what real success feels like.
3. discipline starts now
we are all crammers at one time or another here. (admit it! admit it!) if yes, then you are somewhat qualified for the list of irresponsible people of time management. in the real world, though, you will be embarrassed to submit late projects, to not be on time, to stay idle, or in short to not do a good job. working, or even interning for us (our internship was like working already - that's how it is in EP), is far from studying at all. i've learned that we all have our freedom in managing our time, but the bottom line is that one must be able to do a job well done.
4. new experiences await you
i have never tried uber before nor have i ever tried having a legit photoshoot for a known brand. i never knew that a photoshoot could be so tiring yet fulfilling. i never knew that one simple advertisement poster required a lot of brain, time, and effort all-in-one. (like legit so let us please learn how to appreciate every single ads starting now HAHAHA) i never knew that bingsu - the korean shaved ice dessert - can be that good! i never knew how good free food from the company during overtime with your workmates feels like. i never knew that i was not the only one with this kind of passion (i thought it was just me before). i would've never realized and experienced firsthand a lot of things if it weren't for my internship. after all, something is better than nothing.
5. more connections, yes?
connection is one of the main key to survival in life. and when you intern, you gain new experiences and more connections. so that's a plus sign aarrreadeyyy! (that sounded like "are you readeyy?" HAHA)
i'll definitely miss all the selfies and mirror ootds (with the same posing every time lol)
aside from all the skills that i did learn, most of my "MVLs," aka. most valuable learnings (AHA👅), were the moral values and work ethics. everybody had their own uniqueness and specialty, and team work continues to make the company running. i've learned about giving your best shot for something you are passionate about here. i've learned about loving each other, no matter what kind of personality they may have. this team was extremely welcoming to any new members regardless of age, race, or talent. they were the most open-minded, creative, humble and humorous people who make money for doing what they love that i've ever met. i couldn't be any more grateful to God for this amazing experience that i will bring with me forever. each member of this team had his/her own differences, but it's definitely the love and passion for creativity that keeps everybody the same.
🍻cheers to Elevation Partners!

BLACK MEETS WHITE
i am so happy to have these crays as my sisters. i love them to bits! and because of our coincidental matching colors-white and black, we decided to take some photos today. we were walking down the streets of Grace (our high school and i highly recommend this school) and spotted this white fence at the kindergarten area that we thought would be the perfect backdrop for our pictures. (warning: this post is image heavy.)
white cap, f21
shorts, made by her mother (how cool!)
watch, michael kors

Aaand the day has arrived. FINALLY. We crammed this play in a week and we are doing really great too. two classes X 3 judges + sir Diccion. winners' paper will be waived and get a perfect score. WHOA. now who wouldn't take this play for serious??
the place was so cool. just a small room with matte-finished black walls. the play felt real (it IS real, pauline!) especially the backstage and timing parts. truly a memorable and awesome experience! i..proudly can say that i was an extra. HAHAHA. it was nerve-wracking but that's what makes it fun.
my kaloka-like when smiling, Zaila. isn't she lovely? #justlikeme
backstage with Maan, Angela and Ira.

And then TRES ATTAQUES DE CORAZON where i participated as an extra

the end. we did our best. yes, we did. unfortunately, i am semi-disappointed to announce that we did not win the battle. HAHAHA! it's fine though. 500-700 words reaction paper, here we come!
this was absolutely one of the best times of my college life.
Today was full of rainbows. dead tired but marvelous. i was actually with Gretchen Ho. YES. the famous volleyball player of the Ateneo or rather, the kaloka-like of Gretchen Ho-Nicole. HAHAHA. I swear Nicole just reminds me of Gretchen Ho so much! anyways, the Ateneo grade school had a fair that we impromptly attended today. the sun was scourching but...those kids were way too irresistible that i just had to take home some babies-photos. a-dorbs!!

unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to experience those ultimate rides due to our tight schedule. kyna, jam, and lauren have to study. evertt needed to go home. nicole had to kill time in the rizal lib while waiting for me and i had to practice for our filipino theatrical play tomorrow. YUP. I am officially an extra! yay! we had extra fun tonight at elevate, oh you guys should try going! it's really really really fun.

A SIMPLE REMINDER
God makes the impossible possible so we should be afraid of nothing. He is with us always, and He loves us so dearly. if anyone wants to know more about our heavenly Father, don't hesitate to leave your emails on the comment box below :)
We ended our September 1 with jambalicious Jamba Juice! I recommend the Banana Berry & the Strawberries Wild plus a boost of 4 healthy choices like antioxidants or vit C! Though those two are their best-sellers! Hahaha! Hope you had a great 1st day of September too!X
Good news!! The newest branch of Starbucks is now open. Oh yay! Oh yay!
