I am in Madison and summer has officially arrived for me, even if the weather hasn't jumped on the bandwagon yet. My long-term travels away from my apartment have ceased and I can begin my search for a job and then my search for a career.

I had an interview for a summer internship yesterday and it was not as fruitful as I had hoped. It seems as though they may not need an intern this summer and I'm not sure that I am qualified for the job. I feel that I would learn a great deal there and that I could certainly be of help, but they are more in need of a designer than a codemonkey, and I've been told they have quite high standards. Also, my personal style doesn't seem to jive with what they've got goin' on. So, that is all up in the air. As a result, I begin my backup job hunt tomorrow. It will involve walking up and down state street looking for work. If you know of someplace that's hiring, I'm your man.

As for the career status, work on my online portfolio begins this week. I will also begin looking at monster.com and similar job listing sites once a day. Hopefully something interesting will pop up. Again, if you have any references, let me know.

In addition to these activities, I will be taking the LSAT and the GRE, taking a lot of photos, reading and continuing my movie going experience. If nothing else, this summer will be full of motion.

UPDATE: I did not get said internship. Now I do need a job.
