It blows my mind that I'm writing this reflection just two weeks after this internship. When I first started, it felt like this experience would go on for forever. Now it seems like forever ago that I was back in DC with the rest of the interns and staff at SPS.

So, it's been a full week at SPS and things are going very well. I think I've made a good transition back into the working environment. Friday was spent on brainstorming more demonstration ideas, as well as meeting Dr. Kraig Wheeler of the American Crystallographic Association at a meeting.

Before I explain what I have been up to for the past week, allow me to introduce myself! I'm Mark Sellers and I'm the 2014 SOCK intern. I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri and am a rising senior at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee.

I am writing this final blog post from a lounge chair in my backyard at my home in Cutchogue, New York. For the next month I will be enjoying the beautiful weather, the salt water, and relaxation before I pack up everything and head to Luxembourg on a Fulbright grant in September.

As I write this, I am nearing the end of my first full week as an intern for the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. This week, Congress was in recess, which made for a slower pace in the office, but, I found, hardly any reduction in my excitement.

My first week as an SPS intern in Washington, D.C. got off to an incredibly exciting start. My roommate, Kelby, and I both arrived on Sunday afternoon and moved into our cozy and antique apartment that very quickly became homey and filled with life, especially as the other interns began to arrive.

It's hard to imagine that my SPS summer internship is over. It seems like it was just yesterday I was at ACP working on polarizers for the SOCK and then going out to dinner with the interns. It's funny how fast time flies, not as fast as light, but still funny none the less.

This week has been very eventful. Saturday we went to visit the Freer Gallery and visited Arlington Cemetery not to long after that. It was my first time witnessing The Changing of The Guard. It was a very humbling experience.
