I was in upstate New York for an internship at Wells College Book Art Center with a population of 500 for the month of July. Yes I did say 500!! Aurora is so small it’s called a village not a city, town, or county! The airport looked more like a store than an airport with only one baggage claim belt. I began to worry more as I am riding down a road heading to Wells college and all I see is farmland and the bars on my cell phone drop more and more the closer I arrive to campus. No service+no wireless+population 500= panic!
Then I took a minute to pull myself together and realized this could be a wonderful/productive experience if I take advantage of it! There were a total of four interns who stayed the entire four weeks and then every week we had a new group of students and teachers.
