The weekend was fairly uneventful for me, which is a good thing. I definitely needed some time to take a breather, sleep, finish chores around the apartment, etc... I did go to the Air and Space Museum on Sunday, but it was super packed (which is normal, from what I'm told).
T.S. Elliot once said "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." This quote resonates with me and why I have wanted to travel around the world.
Week two in the office was pretty great. On Monday, the intern coordinator Gary returned from his week in the district. Though I thought he was in his mid-forties by the tone of his email, it turns out he is not much older than me.
With the fourth of July coming quicker than I could anticipate, the work week flew by way to fast. Caleb and I, with a sigh of relief, finished our first pass cataloguing, documenting, printing, and analyzing the entirety of the usable IUE spectrograph data.
My first day at NIST went really well. My boss Dr. Catherine Rimmer is really fun to work for. I also met Ms. Karen Cloud who is a former participant of the NIST summer Institute for Middle School Science Teachers.
