Already halfway through the internship, and so much has happened. This week flew by and blended in with last week’s events. The best part was on Tuesday when we had a potluck. A few of us made dishes that we love and used recipes from home.

This week started with a beautiful potluck evening on Tuesday. I made chicken chili (sweet-chili). There were different foods from each room. I am never used to trying new foods but this time it felt right. All the foods were delicious. Enjoyed every single food.

I opened up this week with a horror movie at AMC in Georgetown. Although it turned out to be more of a thriller the walk back from Georgetown waterfront close to midnight made it worth my time.

This week started off with Saturday’s Astronomy on the Mall. Unlike most of the interns, I worked with my organization’s table, and all of my mentor’s high school students.

This week was filled with mostly researching on what I'll be doing for the rest of the internship as well as getting ready for conferences in October! For the majority of the internship, I'll be focusing on one specific food: Maja Blanca!

Happy July! This week seemed to go by very quickly and I am realizing how short summer and this internship really is.

Hi y’all! Before I begin, I want to acknowledge that there were some Supreme Court decisions this week that you may find distressing, as I do. That said, I am saving a full discussion of the Supreme Court term for next week after the final decisions are released.
