A Day in the Life of a Lakes and Grapes Remote Intern
Author: Hannah Wood
8:15 a.m. - Wake up, chug water, make coffee, do my skincare routine, eat breakfast, turn on whatever I’m binging on Netflix at the moment, check my emails and do some engagement on our Instagram account (with that being said, if you’re not following us on Instagram...why?). Since I do everything from home, I am thankful that my schedule is flexible and I can have slow mornings.
9:15 a.m.- I like to workout in the morning since I spend so much time sitting and staring at screens. Today I did a leg strength training workout from Whitney Simmons.
10:30 a.m. - After taking a shower and getting dressed, I’m ready to “start” my day. Today I had an 11 a.m. FaceTime meeting with Abby and Brooke (the other L&G intern). We have meetings at least twice a week where we talk through everything we need to get done for the week. I wish that I could be in the store with them, but I love being able to have our virtual meetings.
- Writing a blog post
- Creating Instagram stories
- Writing a social post caption
- Working on updating product copy on our website
- Doing some research
3:30 p.m.- Around this time, I like to go for a little walk outside before I switch from my Lakes and Grapes work, to my school work. I have class over Zoom tonight and, I have some articles to read and some PowerPoints to go over. I also have to write a discussion post.
5 p.m. - At five, I shut my laptop and head to the kitchen to make some dinner.
6 - 8 p.m. - Time for Zoom University! I spend two-hours in my Consumer Insights class.
8 p.m. - My favorite part of the day, I do my nighttime skincare routine, put on my pajamas and pour myself a glass of wine, and head to my couch to watch something on TV. I usually end my Lakes and Grapes work for the day by doing more engagement on our Instagram.
10 p.m. - Around 10, I head to my room and get cozy in bed to read a few chapters of my book before going to sleep to wake up for another day!
Being a remote intern isn’t something I ever thought I would be, but it has been such a great experience. When the pandemic hit, I was concerned about if I would find an internship. Thankfully, I found this opportunity that I am so grateful for. It is great to work with some great women and for a brand that I resonate with.
