So, a little background first. My university requires me to do an obligatory four month internship at the end of my first year of studies. I followed plenty of advice here regarding job interviews and I managed to get an internship in an animation studio, the place is great, there's an amazing athmosphere all around but there's one thing that's making me kinda miserable:
I feel out of place.
How can I put this, I am a pretty reserved guy and I don't want people to consider me as rude or anything because I might have ignored a greeting, I have been here for a little less than a month but I find it hard to connect with my co workers.
Another problem I have is that I am basically doing a programming job all by myself, as an intern, alone for the most part. I feel extremely tired everyday, this is making me advance less and less in the project I'm currently working on. Sometimes I'll just slack for about an hour because my brain simply cannot focus on the task anymore. Is this normal for an intern? this is also my first job, everyday I feel like I shouldn't be doing this, even if I'm curious and I do my best to learn stuff I just feel like something is wrong, as if I have chosen the wrong career path. These thoughts torment me everyday.
I would like to know what do you guys think of this? or if anybody has been in a similar situation, I don't want the rest of my internship to be like this, it is detrimental to my productivity and I don't want to give a bad image of myself.
