My Virtual Office: Interning From A Dorm Room

As I sit down to write this blog post, a couple things stand out to me.

First, the overwhelming, almost annoying, abundance of NC State-themed decorations surrounding me. Second, the fact that I’m not in some cubicle looking at a blank computer screen wondering what to do with myself.
