I'm almost done with my internship.

It's hard to believe that I'm almost done with my internship.  I've just got this one month left!

Well, I guess it isn't hard to believe at all - I've been at this since the last week of December, and the standard internship length is three months so in a way I'm uber-overdue to finish.  I'm like a super-senior intern who has been there longer than any of the other ones.   It's time to move on.

I haven't learned all that I hoped I would.  I'm better at public speaking, and I've certainly increased my knowledge of Ancient Egypt.  I can now claim experience working with kids, although I still don't feel comfortable with large groups of them.  But I didn't gain any experience with cataloging, curating, art conservation, or anything like that.  My hopes that I would be able to write a new talk and make an addition to the official museum canon was pretty much shot down by Grandmaster because I wasn't a proper Egyptologist, even though I was prepared to make the work as scholarly as possible, with sources cited and everything!  That was a real disappointment.

Well, I'm doing my best.  What more can you do?
