It has been a hectic few months trying to keep my feet under me & my head above water (where the heck am I?) but I have survived the first ¼ of my internship. And the new year is already looking good!
But, for now, the festive season is upon us and the once bustling campus where I spend my weekdays is now sleepy and hushed. Also we have a Christmas tree. In the front office.
At the end of my second week in Apia, I have to say it’s been a hell of a ride! Admittedly I should have known what I was getting myself into, but of course I had no idea.
Having a crash course in environmental advocacy is like having a crash course in politics & business all rolled into one. It. Is. Go! Go! Go! all the time. Everyone is always doing something, organising something, working on a project, writing papers, traveling, all of this & more, all the damn time. But it’s good, right? It’s for the environment, right?
