I have an (almost) real job!

I just scored an internship working as a wind tech on commercial wind turbines. I'll be doing maintenance on them all summer and trying to obtain one of the two full time positions that the company has available. This big summer project is replacing bad blade bearings. the company who made them must have done something wrong, because they're all cracking which can lead to blades falling off. They said it will look great on my resume.

This has been a weird and strange 9 months of my life, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
