So, I got a seat in front of the piano at this Kennedy Center concert! It was incredible, and I met a jazz pianist and vocalist from Oregon, who was sitting next to me, with whom I shared the awe of this concert.
Last Friday after work all the interns, except Fiona who hadn’t arrived yet, went to the Symphony. It was aconcert of the National Symphony Orchestra with David Hardy on the cello. I got to sit on the side with the harp. I couldn’t see super well, but the harpist was amazing.
My fourth week as an SPS intern was quite enjoyable! I’m really enjoying my new accommodations at George Washington University and I’m adjusting well to my commute. It’s exciting to be in a metropolitan area with so many people and so much going on.
Science. Last week I got a taste of the excitement. This week, however, it seemed I was destined to round out my scientific experience. I found myself trudging through a large bundle of data. I had run a number of datacubes through the program that we’ve been using.
It’s been another eventful week here in the nation’s capital! In the committee office, all of the staff and us interns were working to prepare for two hearings and a markup of the National Windstorm Reduction Act.
