Coming to a Close – Intern Blog

Where has the summer gone? At the end of this week I’ll be packing my things and heading out of Chicago. My internship will be over, technically, and the time I’ve spent at NPK will be remembered through the work done and these blog posts that I’ve written each week. I don’t know when I’ll …

Solid – Intern Blog

I keep thinking about how plant-less my life is going to be in two short weeks. On my desk is a Janet Craig, poor thing probably needs to be watered some more. On the side of me is a ponytail palm, which I stare at constantly because it’s so different. I walk into the warehouse …

Tying Up – Intern Blog

I know I’m not the only one who hates loose ends.   I’ve covered this topic in previous intern blog posts about how frustrating it is to want a project to be done because you’re so excited to have others see it. It was another one of those weeks. Last week, Leah and I filmed …

Merging – Intern Blog

I think working for a plant business has given me a lot more insight into the real world than just expanding my public relations experience. Maintaining relationships within a business is similar to how NPK maintains their plants – attention, care and a willingness to improve the situation. Although I understand this metaphor is a …

Nature + Me – Intern Blog

Each week with NPK seems to teach me a little bit more about myself than I originally knew. 1. I now know the difference between hydrangeas and peonies. 2. There are many different variations of trees. Like, variations within a variation. I kind of wish I had been in Girl Scouts now… do they do …
