Today marks the first day of my week long internship at Hastings Architecture. Each day will begin at 10 AM and end at 4 PM. I arrived this morning and was introduced to various staff and interior designers in the office. After that, I spent most of my morning with a designer looking through a broad range of projects that she had worked on throughout her time with Hastings.
I walked to a local restaurant, Bakersfield, and had lunch with two of the staff members. We had a great conversation about how they chose the design route and what led them to working at Hastings. I love to hear other people’s stories and what ultimately led them to where they are now.
After lunch, I sat in on a meeting for a current ongoing project. It is so exciting to see the things I am learning in classes- studio, construction documents, and lighting first hand in a real project. Although I already knew this, it definitely puts it into perspective how valuable the material is that we are learning.
So, I am ending the day by blogging! It has been a wonderful first day at Hastings and I am excited to see what the rest of the week holds.
