As we head into the middle of July, there is certainly a routine developing. Tours are given, memos are written and letters are drafted. Work is good, but there isn’t much that I think is particularly blog-worthy.

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.

I have mixed emotions about this week. It has been a very fun-filled week. It has also been a sad week because it was the last week of the middle school science teachers summer institute. I have developed a strong relationship with the teachers and I am sad to see them go.

Looking back, I'm always amazed how much we manage to pack into each week. Last Tuesday, I ended up at Bill Nye's "The Lure of Europa" event; a talk he was giving at the Rayburn house office building, courtesy of the Planetary Society.

This weekend was a blast. Saturday was a day spent by the Georgetown waterfront. For most of the day we rented kayaks and went around the Potomac River. We explored a little 'island' we found, and I got sufficiently sun-burnt (even though I put on sunscreen).

The highlight of this week was undoubtedly our tour of NIST, the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This is an amazing place, a true gem of a national lab, and a cornerstone of American industry.

After the 4th of July, I stayed close to home, skyped with my family, and did laundry and such. Nothing too eventful!

Each week seems to pass faster than the one before. It is already week 7, and I am starting to wind down with my research.

This week, my office had only two interns (compared to the usual four), which made for a busy week.
