Hey y'all :)

Bit late posting my blog this week. I was travelling this past week and attending a friend's wedding in Colorado, which was lots of fun, and a welcome break from Texas and its 100 degree weather.

I had an excellent time this week going through the editing process for my first FYI bulletin about the House Science Committee Ocean-Shot hearing. Bulletins contain between 750 and 1,500 words and typically cover three to four topics in depth.

Week three of the SPS program is officially in the history books. I've spent this week diving my time between a couple of projects and getting used to spending my days writing. I have really been enjoying the blend of research and writing that this project has allowed.

This week at SPS:  This week, we had a fantastic intern game night and get-together.  It was an awesome time to visit and hang out with each other.  We also played a game called werewolf which reminded several of us of the campfire game mafia!

I had hoped the third week of this internship program would find me reaching the top of the learning curve, but it came as a surprise when I experienced that ‘aha!’ moment of things starting to click.

This was a great week, so I’ll just skip to the highlight: I visited AIP in person! I am from the D.C. area and was already planning to make the trek back for Father’s Day weekend, when I decided to come down early and visit the offices Friday.

Week three is in the books! This work week was a little shorter, as APS offices were closed for Juneteenth on Friday. I enjoyed a lunch with the APS Careers team on Thursday, followed by a fascinating virtual colloquium with SPS National President, Dr. Kiril Streletzky.

This week seemed to go by fast! It was mostly spent in meetings, webinars, and brainstorming sessions, but ended with me going home to Washington for the weekend. That was the theme for this week - exploring the different types of meaningful connections in my life.
