These past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity, but I am coming to enjoy the fast paced life of the city. For being as large as it is, D.C. is quite charming and welcoming. I am starting to feel at home here, which can be attributed to my growing confidence in my navigation abilities.
This week was my first full week on the job and I absolutely loved it. I am starting to make progress on my project, which is super encouraging. I have already learned so much, even though this is only the second week.
After almost 11 hours of fights, layovers and traffic, I finally arrived at my new home at George Washington University. All 14 of the SPS interns share a giant suite type dorm, with two students per room.
It’s been about five weeks since I was in DC, and so much has happened since then. Saying goodbye to my roommates and friends I made over the summer was hard, but I had the feeling that we would definitely be seeing more of each other in the not-so-distant future.
