Friday officially marked the end of my first workweek at NIST, and all I can say is I have never worked in a work environment like it. From the employees, to the SURF interns and the giant campus, I was a little overwhelmed at first.

I tend to be a bit of an adrenaline junkie; rock climbing, mountain biking, sky diving, skiing, snowboard, scuba diving, long boarding, etc. I love it all. My first day at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was an adrenaline rush of a different nature.

Unlike all of the other interns, this past week I arrived in Washington, DC to begin this amazing summer. I arrived late due to a confluence of events: I was leading a cultural exchange/learning trip to Mumbai, India with Tufts University — where I go to school — until May 29th.

My official first week on the job has been pretty exciting. I've read several papers on the CMB, the CLASS Detector, and the primary noise source in the detector. I've basically spend the whole week learning lots of new things and meeting lots of people.

New jobs are always an indicator of a new beginning. It is an opportunity to meet new colleagues, supervisors, bosses and networking opportunities as well as become a part of something much greater than ourselves.

My first week as an SPS intern in Washington, D.C. got off to an incredibly exciting start. My roommate, Kelby, and I both arrived on Sunday afternoon and moved into our cozy and antique apartment that very quickly became homey and filled with life, especially as the other interns began to arrive.

Just a week ago I was packing my room up at Vassar and now I can barely believe that I'm here in D.C.! This week's been an amazing adventure. But first let me introduce myself.

My first week in chocolate city has been quite an experience to say the least. I flew out to DC on Sunday. It was really hot which reminded me of the weather back at school. My good friend Jonathan from college who recently graduated came to pick me from the airport.
