I took a well-needed break from DC at the start of the week to catch up with friends from high school before diving back into work for the week; I finally got to see the new Pixar movie (and as with any good Pixar movie, cried my eyes out). On Monday, all of us SPS interns got to take a tour of the American Center for Physics, where Connor, Shauna, Hannah, Patrick, Aman, and Brean have been working and they told us all about their projects.
It’s hard for me to believe that this summer program is almost halfway over—the last few weeks have gone by so fast that I can barely keep track. If the next few weeks keep up like this I will definitely be exhausted by August. This last week has been no exception to the craziness.
After just 4 days of getting used to my new life for the summer, my head is still spinning.
After a long flight in, I finally got to move my things to my new apartment on Monday and with my lovely roommates started to figure out the whole grocery shopping/cooking for ourselves deal after having eaten dining hall food for four months. With all that I’ve been up to over the past few days I’ve barely even gotten to explore Woodley Park, the neighborhood around our building, but I’m excited for the chance to do that over the weekend!
The beginning of week eight marked the beginning of 'crunch time.' The science jamboree and SPS Goddard tour Kirsten and I were to lead were Thursday, the SPS Intern Symposium was the week after, and the NASA Goddard summer intern poster session was to be the Thursday after that.
