Okay, so birthdays. Shout out to Stephanie and her birthday on Monday, and all the interns pulling together with food and drinks and games to make the night special. We love you Steph. And then, luckily for Michael, his 21st birthday fell on the date of the boat cruise.

I had an odd week this week. Last Friday I left DC to go to Ireland for a family vacation. I joined my family on the back half of this 10 day trip to celebrate my grandparents 50th anniversary. I arrived in Dublin at 5:30 in the morning very tired (I cannot sleep on planes!).

Week 2 has come and gone, and I am just in disbelief that this internship is going by so quickly. The metra system has decided to cooperate with me, or maybe that was me figuring out the metra?

Multiple times this past week, I have felt like a spectator to others’ stories.
