Planning Ahead for Next Summer

We Wulfs like to be prepared. We like to have things planned out. I keep my planner updated religiously. But both of us were unprepared for geology grad students applying for internships for next summer just a week or two after the semester started. For next summer! Already?! Seriously?!?

Even though Tracy got a slower start on applications, he interviewed with fifteen companies and come home with tons of free stuff--five water bottles, a flashlight, a toy truck, a coffee thermos, flash drives, a deck of playing cards, office supplies, and a hand lense (for looking closely at rocks). But perhaps the most common free item was food. Tracy got at least free ten dinners for going to information sessions and special dinners. We went to the grocery store and realized that we didn't need too much, because we hadn't really eaten any of our own food for dinners. SWEET!! I love free stuff!!!!

But the biggest piece of news we have to share is that Tracy has accepted an internship with Hess, an oil company that is pretty popular on the East Coast. It has many international locations and, while it is relatively small compared to Exxon or Chevron, it has done well in the recent economic crisis. Tracy will be working for Hess in Houston next summer. We are so excited!!


  1. Woot Woot! (Yes I did just type woot woot) 2 great stuff and a future plan for work. Good, now you can start helping my husband look for a job for May!

  2. That is awesome! Congrats! We are just getting into the world of free stuff--contact lenses, meals, etc. No complaining here. Hope all is well. :)

  3. Pretty proud of that man of yours. Hopefully the "Oh, my gosh, we can't afford a pack of gum" days are over. On to new challenges!
