The final week at work was a bit calmer, as we eased into recess. Tours were plentiful – though I cannot imagine who would want to come to DC in August for their vacation. Throughout the week, I wrote my final letters and memos, constantly thinking: Will this be my final memo?

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.

It has been quite the internship this year. After I had initially been hired I had no clue what to expect out of the summer, or if I was even the right person for the job.

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.

This week was the last week for all of the interns but me. We tried our best to do things together every night, which was a great way to say goodbye. I really do feel as if I have made some friends with the other interns this summer.

Week 8 came to a successful end, but I knew better than to think my work was over. The Friday that was fast approaching was to be the day of the SPS Intern's Final Presentation. Yet when I woke up on Monday, I had to finally face the truth- I really needed to start working on that.

Week 10 was bittersweet. After the Final Presentations the week before, most of the week was spent preparing our entry for NASA Goddard's Intern Poster Session.

My last week at Goddard and AIP was a very good review of what I'd done all summer. I reviewed my slides and my work (also in Latex) in order to create a poster for the NASA intern poster session. My project was very well suited to my skills and the time period allotted.

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.

Wow! What an amazing summer. I'm back home in Buffalo now and I still can't believe my time in D.C. has come to an end. The journey home and the past week or so have been a mix of melancholy and joy.
