The End Has Unfortunately Come:((

Today was the last day of my three week long internship with Mr. Lazar and he talked to me about possibly staying over the summer. It’s not official, but I’m feeling good about my chances. We finished Ms. Knutson’s Project and we hope she really likes it. I also used part of today to ask Mr. Lazar his opinion on a lot of my ideas for my presentation. He seemed to agreed with what I had and also gave me a lot of extra metaphors for my presentation. Im extremely thankful I had these three weeks to intern with Mr. Lazar and I hope I can stay over the summer.

The Start of My Last Week :(

It’s the start of my last week and I have set a goal for myself this week. I have to ask at least 2 questions every hour until Friday, which doesn’t sound like much, but if you think about it two questions every hour five hours a day for five days, thats 50 questions. 50 questions equals 50 answers, which means I could learn 50 completely new things in one week. I think its a pretty good goal. Anyways, I had to go to the Manhattan Beach Building offices again except the time it took 3 hours to get a simple stamp… it got pretty irritating after a while. Tomorrow is the last time I’ll see Mr. Lazar’s engineer, so I’m gonna get some questions ready. Till Friday.

Ending My Second Week

Its officially time to end my second week with Mr. Lazar and its been another successful day. I got to do some hands on work today with Mr. Lazar’s right hand man, Vu, and he taught me a lot about the efficiency today. He also taught me how valuable it is to be efficient in this field. I like his saying “Efficiency is almost as important as your trade itself”. I also got a chance to do more work on Ms. Knutson’s going away gift. another great week!

Beginning My 2nd Week

Its officially been a week and a half and I’m still stoked to see whats in store for me. Today Mr. Lazar, his engineer, and I headed over to Amigos Tacos in Manhattan Beach and talked about different issues that had risen over the past few days regarding the structure of the home. It was pretty cool to see Mr. Lazar interact with his engineer in such an informal way, but still get so much done.

End of My First Week

These last few days have been pretty interesting. I got to go to lunch with Mr. Lazar and his engineer and also got to see how closely they work together to ensure every step they take is the smartest and most efficient step available. On Friday I also got started on a side project for Ms. Knutson. Overall, great first week!

First day on the job!!

Today was a my first day working with Mr. Lazar, a successful home designer and builder in the city of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa beach. I was able to visit two different sites that were at different stages in construction. after visiting these sites we headed over to the Manhattan Beach Building Department where everything seemed to move as slow as molasses and we had to wait for hours in order to receive permit. Overall, great first day.
