It is officially half way through the summer!

This is going to be a pretty short post because this week was pretty chill. I’ve been working hard on the gallery exhibition, which should be ready to launch any day now! Other than that, I’ve been working on illustrations for PhysicsQuest and researching scientists for the guiding narrative.

Monday a few interns and I went down to check out a noodle shop off U Street, which was delicious, before going on to meet the rest of the group for Monday night Trivia at Tonic. Tonic is a great little restaurant and bar just two blocks down from Shenkman Hall. They’ve got a great happy hour special, and the most amazing tator tots! Unfortunately, after our jaunt down to DC Noodles, we were too late to snag a table for trivia, so we’re going to have to get there extra early next week! In lieu of trivia at Tonic, we went down and played jackbox games and just generally had a relaxing night.

Thursday, we did our weekly “family dinner” night. This week we did breakfast for dinner, and I think it was the best spread yet. We had French toast, bacon, eggs, crepes, hash browns and more. Thursday night was the Democratic Debate, so we all crowded around to hear what the candidates have to say. Ordinarily I would just watch the highlights reel, but it was nice to watch it with a bunch of different people from wildly different backgrounds.

Next week is going to be another short one, with the 4th of July weekend. I'm taking advantage of the long weekend and visiting home! I am a bit sad to be missing the 4th of July celebrations in DC, but I think it will be good to have some time to rest and recuperate. This last five weeks have been full of so much to do, I am ready for a break!
