The first week of a ten-week journey is now completed and I am already realizing that the summer will be gone in the blink of an eye. On Saturday I drove from my home state of Tennessee to my cousins’ house in northern Virginia.

Well I completely forgot about this last blog post. The internship is all over now, and the symposium went well. I really liked seeing all the other interns present, and I hope I have the chance to meet them in person sometime.

I got to spend this past week in Washington D.C. for the quantum computing workshop. It was great being able to do something in person and meet my mentor. At the workshop I got to help with setup, help attendees with activities, and meet a bunch of interesting teachers.

I made it to DC! It was the first itme that I've flown by myself, but everything went smoothly. When the plane came in I got a really nice view down the Mall of the Washington Monument, the Capitol, and the Lincoln Memorial. (pictured below)

I had lots of fun this week. First, my old roomate, who I didn't think I'd see again for a while, made a suprise visit at the end of the week. Then a few of us went to a ramen place to celebrate a friend's brithday.

I had lots of meetings this week. First, I attended several of the AAPT committee meetings, including the high school, undergraduate, and diversity committees. It was interesting to see what some of them are working on for future AAPT meetings and what the other parts of AAPT are working on.

Happy Fourth of July! (or 5th now I suppose). I hope everyone got to see some fireworks. The Lafayette show was pretty good.

Due to various computer problems, this is the third time I'm writting this blog posting (and hopefully the last).
