Today marks the end of my wonderful summer internship at Pixelberry Studios. My tasks included running the Facebook and Twitter pages, answering customer support questions, and working on other various projects. I was constantly entertained by unusual customer support questions, and I was touched by the supportive comments on High School Story social media sites.
My fondest memories of my summer internship however were not in front of the computer screen, but sitting at the lunch table with the rest of the Pixelberry team. On most days, the interns and junior writers adventured to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s or the occasional burrito place to pick up lunch. Our discussion topics ranged from movies, to the other intern, Daniel, and his lack of certain abilities, to studio manager/writer, Kara, and her endless list of phobias*. I will never forget the time Daniel asked me how to use Saran wrap, or the time junior writer, Keyan, came up with a solution to put the moldy bread argument to rest, or the hysterical and almost certainly exaggerated stories told by our developer, Andrew. Needless to say, there were many laughs (and a few eye rolls) exchanged.
Though my time at Pixelberry has been short, it has been an invaluable and insightful journey. The Pixelberry team demonstrates a perfect example of what can be achieved when a group of dedicated, talented, and passionate individuals work together towards a single goal. I am so lucky for the opportunity to have been part of such a tight knit and creative community of people, and I know that what I have learned at Pixelberry this summer will stick with me for the rest of my life.
