The stages of transition outlined by the reading for this week were 1. Expectation, 2. Disorientation, and 3. Transition and Resolution.
Expectation is how every intern starts anywhere. I am all to familiar with this feeling. I always manage to create this grand image in my mind of what I think I will be doing and how enjoyable and fulfilling it will be, only to find that it never really turns out the way I pictured it. Not that the actually experience ends up being disappointing necessarily, but it just turns out to be...different...than what I thought.
