I had been saying that I would soon be a teacher, that I wasn't actually a teacher yet but would be starting at my first position in a few weeks. My colleagues at the PTRA Summer Institute have forced me to banish the future tense.
Like the previous weekends, I took things pretty slow. With all of the outreach events we'd done, I definitely needed some time to sleep in and catch up with friends and family, do laundry, get groceries, play Counter-Strike, etc etc.
This was quite a week! Monday began early: a 7:15am arrival to the Pentagon, for our 8am tour. Since our group was so large, we had a tour guide all to ourselves. He was very impressive, and inspired me to walk backwards on all tours that I now give.
This week was just about all dedicated to preparing for the final presentations for the intern symposium. Monday morning all of the interns went on a tour of the Pentagon. I thought it was really interesting. We had a great tour guide who was very enthusiastic and informative.
