So, I guess it’s finally all over, at least for now. As I write this I’m sitting at my desk, back in Alaska, looking out over some spruce trees instead of a cityscape, realizing just how quick the summer went by.

It's crazy to think that there is only a single week of this internship left. There are so many things that I still want to do, but I definitely won’t be able to get to them all. I guess I’ll have to return to DC at some point.

At our tour of NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) last week I made several connections regarding energy storage, and this was the week to follow up on those.

I’m tired. It’s been a long and busy week including taking two of the metro trains to the ends of their tracks. I met more scientists in physics related fields in the last few days than the rest of the summer.

As far as holidays go our internship has been the perfect time to be in D.C. We got to spend Memorial Day at Arlington National Cemetery and now Fourth of July on the front steps of the Capitol Building.

Energy storage may not be the most glamorous subject, but I’m certainly learning a lot about it. In fact it’s actually really interesting and incredibly important.

Despite what it can seem from the outside, things actually do get done in the Senate.

Wow, what a week! It is certainly a busy time to be in DC.

Congress is back in session! For those who don’t know, the congressional schedule takes a recess every so often. During this period the Senators and Representatives can go home, and office hours for staff members are shorter; everything is a little more laid back.
