Executive Assistant to the Head of the Department of International Trade Economics and Business for the Washington State Department of Commerce

That's my official title, but I also go by "Camille the intern"
Last week I ended my dream job working above the service garage at Toyota of Kirkland so I could get paid nothing to sit in this office.
The view is awful
And today I spotted a peeping tom
26 floors up gives me the woozies. But I have to thank them for my wall plaque.
My office when I first started.
My window for spying on the city
And today it was sunny so I had to take another picture :)
Ok. Fine. I love it.
Today I watched planes land and take off of Lake Union. (The water looks kinda far in this pic, but... eez noht.) When I'm not looking out my gorgeous window, I'm working. This is already a big switch-up from Toyota because I actually have work to do all day. And my work includes planning meetings, preparing materials to present to the Governor, and planning aerospace projects for the state and World Expo.
Huh? Cami? Are you sure? Was this some kind of mistake?
I figure, if humans can build rockets and perform brain surgery and fight ninjas, I can do this. I'm human too.
Whenever I start to get stressed out from work, I just step back and remember I have a life outside of this office. If I use the wrong salutation on an event invite, my life will go on. If I forget to add someone on a meeting agenda, it is only the intern's fault. And when I leave the doors at the end of the day, I go back to being Cami the Nanny!
Life is so twisty, but it blows my mind. In a good way :)

Cami, how did you land that internship!? That's the coolest thing I've ever heard! Look at you, all grown up and doing important political things. Way to go, girl! I want to be like you when I grow up!

Haha thanks James! I'll switch you jobs aaannyy day. My cousin Seth has crazy hook ups all over, so I met with the lady and a month later her assistant quit so she called me and asked if I wanted the job. Random! It's been good though. I want to hear all about your adventures!
