Working and Studying from Home

With both city and state governments announcing new guidelines and restrictions to stay healthy and safe, a lot of people are expected to not just stay home, but also work or attend classes from home. There could be a silver lining. No more commuting (at least for the time being), and more opportunities to eat an actual well-balanced meal instead of whatever you can heat up in the office microwave or find in the campus cafeteria. However, in a setting where you’re completely in charge of how you manage your time, you can be your own worst enemy.  Here are some tips to maximize your productivity while working or learning from home.

Respect Your Space

It may be tempting to work from the comfort of a big comfy couch or a cozy bed. Respect your work and the space you work in. Find a designated spot to work at. If …

Balancing Work and Wellness

As a student and employee, it’s important to balance work and school. Everyone should make sure their health is a priority. Health is one of those things that we all often overlook until we’re no longer healthy enough to carry out our daily tasks. This is especially annoying when there’s a big test or work event. As basic as it sounds, taking care of yourself by eating properly and working out will ensure you are operating at an optimal level.

Of course, when trying to balance classes, work, an internship, extracurricular activities and possibly a social life, the last thing on most people’s minds is three well-balanced meals and 30 minutes of exercise a day for five days a week. However, shifting your mindset about this is the key here. It’s self-care of the most vital form. How can you expect to kill it every day when you’re being fueled …

Meet the Intern: Judi Bustamante

Hello!

My name is Judi Bustamante, the new admin and outreach intern at Indiana INTERNnet for spring 2020. I am very excited to be a part of such a brilliant organization. I graduated from Indiana University – Indianapolis, with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Journalism with a concentration in public relations and a creative writing minor.

While at IUPUI, I was a member of the Native American Student Alliance and Public Relations Student Society of America. I also helped the Latinas Welding Guild with videography, photography and anything media related in my spare time.

My family and I moved to Indianapolis when I was an infant, so I call myself an honorary Hoosier. I am a first-generation Nicaraguan-American and am fluent in Spanish. Cruising the city by bike, especially at night, is one of my favorite pastimes. I am a fan of old architecture and love what …

Meet the Intern: Alysse Harges

Hello!

My name is Alysse Harges, and I am very excited to be the outreach intern for spring 2020 here at Indiana INTERNnet.

I’m a second semester senior at Ball State University studying public relations with a double minor in sociology and natural resources. Originally from the Windy City, I attended Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences and graduated from DeVry University Advantage Academy. I played tennis and volleyball during my high school career, but my favorite was track and field. I am a huge fan of city living and iced coffee on a hot summer day.

On campus, I’m a member of Alpha Phi Omega, the largest coeducational service fraternity in the U.S. I serve on both the service and pledge committee, taking an active role in orchestrating service projects and bringing in a new class of initiates. My favorite place …

Kayla’s Goodbye to Indiana INTERNnet

This is my last post here on IndianaINTERN.net and while I am so incredibly sad to leave, I am so excited for what the future holds. That is why internships are so amazing, you get a shortened amount of time to get your feet wet in a career field and see what the future could potentially hold. I know I have said this a lot but starting my internship search and experience early has been a huge impact and influence on my life. I hope all you Indiana interns out there you are stepping out of your comfort zone and applying for as many internships out there. I hope that my blogs either made you laugh or gave you some sort of insight to being an intern or college student.

Indiana INTERNnet Team:

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Coming into this position I was so unaware of what I …
