I got to know you by interviewing and profiling you for the community blog. Thanks for helping me brush up on my long forgotten journalism skills. By talking and getting to know you I made valuable connections.
I learned from you when you showed me the latest innovations in technology and networking – new apps, programs, and information systems that bring our world together. Thanks to you, I gained experience and knowledge in fields that I had previously been unfamiliar with.
I had fun with you- whether it was mixing cocktails on the roof after a busy week, eating nachos with Velveeta, or drinking homebrews at Hardywood, you were always down to have a good time. Thank you for making me feel at home.
I learned what not to do: Sorry for that obnoxious email blast listing every member of 804RVA in the sent box. In future, I will separate emails accordingly. I also learned that scheduling interviews with members without a follow-up email (forgetting that people are not waiting in anticipation to meet with me) is a recipe for failure.
A special thanks to Larkin for taking me under your wing and welcoming me into the 804RVA community. Who will accompany you on mid-day hot dog runs and trips to dollar tree? I look forward to popping in on occasion and hopefully seeing the “Urban-Suburban” limo service I helped plan come into fruition.
As I return to school for my junior year at George Mason I won’t soon forget the friends I made and the experience I obtained interning at 804RVA. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their summer. I can’t wait to see you all again!
