Sadly we are halfway through the summer internship. However this week was really productive. My mentor came back from being away for two weeks. Monday we had a nice long meeting to go over everything I had been working on. I am super happy to report that he was very pleased!
Oh, how the weeks have just gone by so quickly! SPS has really done a great job with coordinating the internship to where we are constantly on the run and surrounded with people that make the time fly by.
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.
