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.

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.

The last week of the internship was extremely hectic. Scrambling to get my project completed, scrambling to get my poster printed, and scrambling to finish and perfect my oral presentation. All of that stress paid off, because I did indeed finish all those tasks before I had to leave.

I would like to utilize my last blog to thank those who have made this possible. None of this would have been possible without them.

For my final blog post, I decided reflect on all the changes in my thoughts, perspectives and plans from May to August. Below is a letter to Justine a few days before I left for DC from Justine now as I am going home.


Dear Justine in May 2017,

In my experience, Week 9 is always, by far, the most stressful week. Abstracts, posters, and presentations need to be completed, while wrapping up the entire project. That being said, I had a pretty fantastic week.
