 Well, this is week 10. Our last blog for this internship. Can’t believe it is over now. What a summer it was! This was the best summer I have had since I came to the US. Talking about this week, it was all about preparing ourself for the final presentation.

Almost end of our internship. My work at my internship was almost done as well. All I had left was some documentation. While I was writing all of those down, I realized I could make the program even easier for other people and therefore I updated my script.

So, there was some change of plans with our matching project. I had to update my coding to match this new idea and that’s all I did for this week’s work. After that, I have been working on the documentation of those programs and will continue working for the upcoming week.

This week I tested my program with our last year’s physicists and teachers data. I had to edit/add some columns to match our newly designed signup form. The program was working nicely. will be meeting with my supervisor next and see if I need to add something more for the final program.

This week my mentor and I got the code running which means I now have a large excel sheet of all the data I need! I manually checked 5 colleges/universities and it seems to have all the correct information.

This week started with a bang of colors. Monday was the 4th of July, America’s Independence Day. In the morning we went around Washington monument to watch the parade. Then we went for a quick lunch at Duke’s. Later around 6-6:30 we left GWU for the Washington monument one more time.

The end of this internship is looming too close for comfort. This week besides continuing what I have been working on, I have been working on the intro to my final project and planning out a schedule for how to get everything done.

This week started with a beautiful potluck evening on Tuesday. I made chicken chili (sweet-chili). There were different foods from each room. I am never used to trying new foods but this time it felt right. All the foods were delicious. Enjoyed every single food.
