This week, my work at Potomac Research was mostly completed, so I focused more on finalizing my presentation.  I practiced presenting a few times for my mentors, and once they gave me the green light, I was ready to go for Friday.  They took me out to lunch at a German restaurant in Alexandria on

On Tuesday, we held our final DnD session, which was terrific. We played on the lawn of the Lincoln Memorial so we could play and watch the sunset together. We all had a good time and agreed to try and play with each other virtually during the semester.
