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.

Happy July! This week seemed to go by very quickly and I am realizing how short summer and this internship really is.

Even though Monday was Juneteenth, I still had a meeting with my professor for my directed-reading. We both chose an article to read about which will be helping me with the project I am doing for this internship.

This week, at my work, we discussed our project idea with the web development team, and they picked up some issue so we might not be able to finish our automated project for this fall. But we are still listing out ideas and going through the issues to find solutions.

One of my favorite parts of being an intern is reading the Education Diversity and Inclusion articles that my mentor suggests to me. Some of them are more dense and all of them are very engaging. Work can sometimes feel like a good class.
