Jan 6, Plan for internship applications

This afternoon, I did some things I hadn't planned on, but I think it was a good idea.  I re-revised my resume and sent it to my former supervisor and asked him to look it over and give me feedback. I feel relieved to have asked the "right" person for help.  I have not filled out my forms, so I need to do forms and rough drafts tomorrow.
