Week 6 entailed adventuring off the concrete roads and step outside the gray jungle. It starting going into an early morning hike at Great Falls on the Virginia side. However, the trail traced takes you on the easiest path throughout the entire hike. There are no bumps or breath-taking views.

Her fate lies in her own hands.

Never have I felt more humbled and proud of myself and my fellow interns than when a Congressman acknowledged us at a committee hearing.

Another week has come and gone here and D.C., it is crazy how quickly the time is passing here. I’m pretty sure all the interns are enjoying ourselves and frankly I don’t want to think about leaving, I know I won’t want to go.

It is incredibly hard to believe that this week was the half way point of the internship. I have learned so much and have done so many things, but I still feel like I just got here. There is just so much to do here! This week was full of fun things to do, which kept me very busy all week!

Tour trough The Capitol, a visit to the National Museum of the American Indian, and roller skating. An amazing way to conclude the first half of the summer.

I know I said last week went quickly, but it was nothing compared to this week. I didn’t even had time to blink and the week was gone. I only spent one day in the office, Monday, and, on that day, I felt like I didn’t even get much done.

Congressional shout outs, VP sightings, and space hearings-- all a day in the life of an SPS intern!
