The first full week at work went by fast. It’s only the second week and I feel like I’m getting into the swing of things: I have a grip on my project at work and I have begun to explore activities, museums, concerts and such in DC.
This week I moved to a city I’ve never been to on the exact opposite side of the country from where I grew up (Seattle) with only one suitcase and a backpack to be the Education and Diversity Statistics Intern for the American Physical Society (APS).
Almost there. It seems like the closer we get to week 10, the quicker the days go by. Maybe it’s because I feel settled into my routine? I’m not sure, but as Brad put it this week, June felt like a week, July felt like a day, and August feels like an hour.
This week, I spent my time finalizing my work at APS and getting the products of my work published on the APS website. Throughout my internship, I made a lot of tough decisions, experienced the implications and consequences of those decision, and learned a lot.
It’s really hard to believe my time as a SPS intern is over. This past week was jammed packed with final preparations, practice, last minute documentation, and final meetings. I’m truly sad to see my internship come to a close, but all good things must end.
It’s hard to believe how fast time has flown—I will be presenting my results next week! I spent this week working on my presentation and analyzing my data. I still need to add one more visualization of my results, but otherwise the slides are all done!
