So I’ve been working on my TWLOHA application for the Summer Internship position, and I ended up struggling a bit.I’ve started having nightmares; some vivid, and scary.  Some outrageous and laughable.  Some that I can’t remember the next day.And in my TWLOHA application video, part of what I say is that I’ve worked on myself,..
