September is nearing fast, and for summer interns like me, that means abandoning the real world in favor of dorm rooms and cafeteria food for fall semester. Although this internship season is coming to a close, it’s never too early to begin searching for desktop necessities for your next position!
As Knock Knock’s Social Media Marketing Intern, I am naturally the authority on all things internship-related. Here are my five picks for any internship:
1. Perhaps the most daunting task for interns is decision-making: “Should I print this memo double-sided?” “How should I sign this email?” “Do I have to ask to use the restroom?” With our Hand-Lettered Make A Decision Pad you’ll solve these dilemmas in a jiffy!

We’re number one fans of our fans. (We’re sure you know how much you contribute to our existence.) So we want to thank you all with a column dedicated to you: “Friendly Fridays”! Once a month, we will be featuring a certain friend and their Knock Knock stuff-related stories.
Literature and writing, in general, would be—dare we say—less impactful without the human gems, known as English teachers, introducing the classics to us early on. Our August Friend of the Month, Ariana, is proof of just how amazing they are as individuals! (You’ll understand when you read on, peeps.) She’s so fond of all things Knock Knock, that’s she’s even influenced her own mom to become a Knock Knock fan. And that really gets the virtual, happy tears flowing.
Name: Ariana G. Haro, otherwise known as Arior, @SavvyRE1189, RetrogradeHipster, RE, or Ms. Haro. That last one will make sense after number three.
Location: I currently live in the Inland Empire of sunny Southern California. For those of you who have never been here or have no clue what I’m talking about, it is okay—most people don’t. (FYI: we’re glad to me be in somewhat close proximity to you, Ariana. Only in state terms though, not in Los Angeles terms. But you should drop by next time you’re in Venice!)
Occupation: After years of pain and suffering in school, I have made the strange choice to continue said pain by returning as a high school English teacher. No, just kidding! I love my job working at a local high school. I am lucky enough to teach freshman English, so not only do we go over authors like Poe and Shakespeare, but I also work with them to create study skills that will help them in other classes and beyond—I hope.
Favorite Knock Knock product? I knew this question was coming and I must say it is extremely hard for me to decide. However, since I have to, my favorite Knock Knock product would have to be my Note to Self Pocket Notes. I have [the sheets] everywhere; car, classroom, purse, bedroom. They are so helpful and I can’t wait to get the redesigned version too. It’s purple; a personal favorite color of mine.
A double whammy—Ariana using her Get Crap Done Pen with her Note to Self Pocket Notes. Lots of Knock Knock love going on!
Knock Knock Story Time: I personally love to use the sticky notes and stamps while at work. When I’m sending things to other teachers, the bits of wit and sarcasm go a long way to make someone smile after dealing with a hundred-plus teenagers a day. Also, it’s fun to get responses back when people get a sticky note from me for the first time. Sharing the whimsy of Knock Knock products is always fun. =)
Like her students, Ariana also passes notes in class (to her colleagues). We hope you got those sets!
We think you’re great, Ms. Haro and goodluck with all of the back-to-school planning. Just remember: if any of your pupils act out this fall, they may or may not receive an anonymous Nag Note (directly from us)!
We’re number one fans of our fans. (We’re sure you know how much you contribute to our existence.) So we want to thank you all with a column dedicated to you: “FOKKer Fridays”! Once a month, we will be featuring a certain FOKKer and their Knock Knock stuff-related stories.
When people go above and beyond our expectations, it feels as if the universe decided to braid us a crown made of genuine cheeriness and place it atop our heads. It’s twofold when it’s a FOKKer doing the impressing.
This is how we felt after reading every single “pin” that’s a part of our June FOKKer of the month’s post. Kate Hudkins, also known as the undeniably cool @KateHudkins, wanted to put a twist on the usual format of our “FOKKer Fridays.” Instead of straight-out answering our questions about herself, she put all of her answers on Pinterest. Also, she did all of this post-surgery, lying on her couch watching TV, while on the mend. Never underestimate the combined powers of a creative mind, social media, and DVR.
