This week, I continued working on my big data project. I made more charts extrapolating information, and learned how to adjust government budget numbers for inflation.

On Monday, we had taco night! I brought beans and sour cream. The taco potluck was a great idea and super tasty to boot. Tuesday I went in to work and made zucchini chocolate chip bread after. It was the first time I made it, and I brought it home when I came to NJ on Thursday to share with my family. They enjoyed it! Thursday, we visited NIST! Thanks to Taylor, Div, and Valeria for setting this up. I really enjoyed the anechoic chamber; it would make a great meditation room During the weekend, I went to the beach with a friend in rural New Jersey. The flies ate us alive but we still had a restful time.

This week, I submitted my abstract and title for the final project and started the final presentation. It will be exciting to soon share the charts I made this week with the rest of the interns and AIP. I know that giving a presentation can be nerve-wracking, so I wish everyone good luck in their preparations.
