Athens, OH 1 April 2019

I can’t believe that it’s April already and the semester is finally starting to wind down. While I’m definitely sad to be leaving Athens and all of my friends behind, I am looking forward to my summer plans and taking a much anticipated break from school work. Since this is officially my last blog post of junior year, I thought I’d update you all on what I will be doing during my time away from Ohio University!

I will be returning this summer to the same company I worked for last summer—ABB Inc. in Cleveland, Ohio. ABB is a worldwide power and industrial automation company. Last summer I enjoyed working in the Systems Engineering Department, while this summer I will be expanding my horizons an working in the Proposals Engineering Department. I am excited for this, as it involves a heavy amount of planning and overseeing projects/developments. I am confident that this department will allow me to get the perfect overview of what every department of the company does, all while fueling my love of planning and organization.

I officially begin work on May 13th and will be working full time until mid August. In the meantime however, I have several much anticipated vacations planned for a few weeks in July. My family will be heading back to Carolina Beach, North Carolina for one week, where we will enjoy the ocean and atmosphere. A few weeks following that, I will be heading to the Outer Banks, North Carolina with my boyfriend and his family. I’m also expecting several concerts and trips to Cedar Point throughout the summer.

I will definitely be keeping busy while I am away from Athens. While I will miss being in the town that I love, I am excited for the opportunities that await me once finals week is over.
