we’ve had 7 interns with us at the home office this summer…most of them are heading back to school now.
allie worked on our planning team. see below…she learned so much while she was here!

things i have learned this summer:
• contrary to my suspicions, ap physics actually DOES come in handy in the real world. understanding “velocity” is crucial to becoming an accomplished planner or allocator.
• WTF does not stand for “what the ****!”…it stands for We The Free
• i have learned to proficiently read without vowels. for example, “hey jamie. how are you allocating that L/S SLD VNK XTRM BTTNDWN MNSWR B/D PCKT TNK? i really like it”
• planners like numbers so much that they have made a numerical equivalent for almost every word used in the retail world.
• IT is your best friend
• ProClarity is your worst
• make mistakes, it’s how you learn. however, make the same mistake twice, shame on you.
• be open to new opportunities. don’t turn your nose up at something until you are fully educated about it.
• incorporate design into all aspects of your life. be creative, be influential, and let yourself be open to influence.
• have energy and stay inspired.
• never settle for anything less than your dream job because…
• success and happiness are interchangeable.

anshu

i got an email this weekend from one of our creative directors, merrie. she spends a lot of time in india, and shared this story with me about a little boy she befriended:
“this little boy’s name is anshu.

his family lives on the grounds of our friend kundan’s office and his father is the gardener.
kundan has developed a soft spot for him as he’s grown up because he is so ‘street smart’. he loves hanging with the big guys and doing what they do.
so, kundan decided to send him to a school that teaches english, which is the ticket to a better life in india. the school started only a few weeks ago, and we don’t know if the family will see the value of a good education over the years to come, but we are trying…hopefully it’s the start of something bigger.
i figured out no one had ever taught him his colors, so now everyday after ‘tutions’ he stops by our office and sorts my colors with me. (i work on my hindi, and he works on both hindi and english).”

uma -Sep 08, 2009, 4:47AM
hi merrie May god bless you and kundan abundantly for all your love and efforts !! Warm Regards Uma

This is an awesome story. My eyes welled up a little! we really take all this for granted and it is nice to know, there is support out there.

What a neat work environment! It seems too interesting to qualify as an office. My dream job would be in a place like that, but I'm not sure if that could ever happen with the accounting qualification that I'm getting. ;)

FP is so rad my whole closet is filled with it! FP is so rad my whole closet is filled with it! <3
