Happy Monday after the 4th of July weekend! aka one of the hardest Mondays of the year. Not only did I have an eventful Independence Day weekend, but also ended the work week with an exciting trip with the BRAVO! team at Top Golf. All of this together led to a long holiday weekend that I will remember forever. Starting with the trip to Top Golf, which was a place I have wanted to go to since I have heard about it. I have not golfed in about ten years which showed but, that was the fun of it. Each of us had a laugh in trying to perfect our golf swing over drinks and some appetizers. It was nice to spend time away from work with the team and look forward to having the opportunity to be able to again this week at an out of office networking event.
As for Independence Day itself, I spent the holiday at home in Pittsburgh at an all-day cookout celebrating both the holiday and my boyfriend’s sisters birthday. The day was spent with friends and loved ones that seemed to have lasted forever ending the night with self-bought fireworks in the back yard by the pool. I would not have wanted to spend my weekend any other way but, I will admit I do not think I will be making that long drive the rest of my time here in D.C. I plan on making the best out of the little time I have left because this ten week experience is flying by quickly.
Speaking of my last five weeks here, I am going to try to fit as much in as possible and explore the many places and sightseeing that D.C. has to offer. I feel I have only seen a small part of this amazing city and am excited to venture to the many areas and attractions of D.C. I also plan on making the best of what is left of my internship here at BRAVO! Like mentioned in previous blogs, there are many events in the fall that my fellow intern Bryan and I get to be a part in helping create. The list is endless when it comes to what is all involved in creating an event from scratch but that is what makes working for a company such as this so interesting. Once you think you are aware in all of the steps necessary, more and more come into play and it all varies depending on what type of event is being planned as well as the message that is trying to be reached.
I feel I have just scratched the surface of D.C. and event life, but I am looking forward to all of the opportunities left in the last weeks here. As always, cheers to whatever comes next. I am ready for it.
