Last Saturday OSA hosted their annual “celebration of Inclusion.” OSA just happens to be positioned at the very start of the DC Pride Parade so each year they throw a party on the back patio with food and drinks and music for everyone to enjoy while the parade goes right by.

This week has just flown by! On Friday (of last week) I sat down with Sarah C. and Amanda N. and we discussed my exhibit ideas. We narrowed it down to two, one that I determined was easy and the other would be challenging.

This week has been the first real week for me in terms of doing my work and getting settled in. I have expectations I must meet at NASA every day and I have created a daily schedule/routine that works for me; finding time to meal prep, commute, study, go to the gym, etc.

Week 2 has come and gone, and I am just in disbelief that this internship is going by so quickly. The metra system has decided to cooperate with me, or maybe that was me figuring out the metra?

Multiple times this past week, I have felt like a spectator to others’ stories.

As I sat at dinner for a friend’s birthday this week, I shared my news of some of my experiences in the science committee office.

So in case you were wondering this past week, no I still haven’t figured out how not to get lost on the Metro.  But I’m steadily learning everyday! Sometimes I miss my stop (like this morning) but then I just get right on that reverse train and eventually get where I need to go.
