Through hard work and maybe a bit of magic, I managed to create an internship out of my freelance job that I've had for the past two months. It's a totally legitimate internship doing what I love: developing/designing the web.
The company? ColorJar. They're made up of a bunch of awesome guys and gals who work in and around Chicago, and are, apparently, very happy to have me working for them.
Last Friday, we figured out the details and GVSU's CIS internship coordinator approved it, and now I just need to get the proper documents signed and dated, then turn them all in. I cannot express how excited I am about this. Not only am I working for a fantastic company, but this is opening doors in my head for my future.
So, I'm heading to Chicago tomorrow night to stay with some friends, then working Wednesday with the guys at ColorJar.
This... this is quite amazing.
