It is interesting to think how 6 weeks ago I landed here in D.C a few days before the internship began and I was able to run around and explore. The days before moving into the dorms I remember imagining what the summer would look like.
I swim to work. I swore that no summer could be worse than a summer in Memphis. Being right on the Mississippi river, going to work everyday was like breathing in water. My glasses would fog up when I would step out of my car.
This week has been fun at work. I have been finishing up my teaching guide on Wanda Diaz-Merced, started a new one about Fred Begay, and received word from a possible interview candidate that they would like to meet with me!
Since joining the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, this is my first week experiencing Congress in recess. The office has been pretty quiet, and some days it feels like there is more focus on the World Cup than on work.
