From start to finish, this week has been a wild one. This week at AAPT, I’ve been helping Rebecca to finalize everything for the conference in Phoenix. I’m currently writing this from Phoenix, so as of now, everything is running smoothly.

This week was amazing, and it started right from the start. On Monday, my mentor told me that if I wanted to, I could help out Rebecca Vieyra, who was the mentor for previous AAPT SPS interns, prepare for a STEM+C Workshop and even attend some of the workshop.

After months of waiting, the day had finally arrived. I was in Washington, D.C., meeting my fellow interns, and starting my internship. I was so scared that I would miss my flight or that I would get lost trying to get to the dorm, but everything worked out and I made here safe and sound.

“We are scientists, and often times, scientists don’t know where they’re going sometimes. It’s important to set that tone in a physics classroom.”

Dear Internet,

On a Sunday evening I found myself being told by google maps to walk across a river.
