Not only was this week the last week for Nikki and I working at the Science Committee but it was also the last week before Congress goes into its’ August Recess. Therefore, there was quite a bit of work that had to be done.

This summer went by way too quickly, but then again, I say that almost every summer. It’s weird to think that in a few days, we’ll be done with our internships.

I can’t believe how quickly time is passing. We only have a week and a half left, which is crazy. I am really enjoying the projects I have been working on and really like the other interns. It will be so sad to go our separate ways in just a few weeks.

I can’t believe it’s August! This summer has absolutely flown by. I’m busy wrapping up my project at NIST and preparing for my presentation next week at ACP.

This week was all about finishing up the poster for my presentation. My mentor has been in Canada, and so he was hard to reach. Fortunately the rest of the group, namely Tom and Mike, were able to help me along the way. By Tuesday I had finished the first draft of the poster.

There is a meditative quality unique to mechanical labor. The fingers move and the mind goes away; when it returns, it finds the products of the body strewn all about it. Time disappears, and then only the creation remains.

This week has certainly been the best by far. By Thursday I had completed the remaining talking points that Camsie wanted.

It’s hard to believe that after today we’ve only got one full week of work left before we all leave DC and head back to school, work, or (in my case) weather that we can actually cope with.

This week has been full of activities. As the internship comes to a close, we have to start thinking and working on our final presentation, finish documents, and organize things, such as tours. On Friday, we went to the NIST tour, which was very interesting.
