This tired, worn-out soul just walked past the door to the archive for the last time! My seven weeks of internship is over and I have to say that cleaning my desk and giving back the keys, putting the hard-drive back on my mentor’s desk and handing over my white (and smudged) archive-gloves to one of the archive-assistants was quite wistful. I’ve received so many kind compliments about my work, both quality and quantity-wise, at the archive during today’s forenoon that I was simply stunned and very, very touched. ”It’s obvious that you feel at home between the shelves”, my mentor said – and I just thought it was such a simple, yet thoughtful compliment. I’m really going to miss the shelves I’m a bit too short to reach all the way, all the heavy file-folders I’ve carried stacked on top of one another until I couldn’t see over them anymore and the amazing staff that’s taken care of me. ❤ That being said – I’ll be very happy when my alarm dosen’t go off at 5 a.m. tomorrow! ⏰
