It is Friday morning and I have been staring at my computer screen trying to plan what to write for 20 minutes. Last night was the boat cruise, and needless to say, I am exhausted.

The title of this blog has become the catch phrase for anything we interns do as a group.

I want to start with a shout-out to Elon. She is such an incredible person, and I’m so happy to be cubicle-mates and roommates with her.

So I think I can confidently say, I will not be a YouTuber in the near future.  Video editing is tough stuff! It took me so long just to figure out how to fade the music volume before the talking begins.

The third week of the program is coming to an end, and right now I feel as if we are in that stage where it still seems like we just started yesterday. This, unfortunately, is not the case. Just last night, everyone I spoke with shared my perception of how quickly the time had been passing.

On Monday this week, our office interns all arrived excited to start the day. Today we would be going on a scavenger hunt around Capitol Hill!

When I wrote last week about watching fireflies flicker in Lafayette Park, I thought I was having a special experience. I was mistaken. Fireflies are all over the place in this city.

First I started seeing them in other parks, and I thought, “Wow! That’s really cool.”

Okay, so birthdays. Shout out to Stephanie and her birthday on Monday, and all the interns pulling together with food and drinks and games to make the night special. We love you Steph. And then, luckily for Michael, his 21st birthday fell on the date of the boat cruise.

Imagine: a crowded dance floor, flashing lights, neon glow sticks, fancy clothes, party hats, gourmet desserts, over 25 SPS employees, interns, and executives getting down to V.I.C.'s Wobble, wading down the Potomac on a dinner cruise.

That's how I spent my 21st birthday on Thursday.
