This week was my first full week on the job and I absolutely loved it. I am starting to make progress on my project, which is super encouraging. I have already learned so much, even though this is only the second week.
It is the end of my first full week at The Optical Society (OSA). So far I absolutely love my team members, as well as all the staff at OSA. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly and I feel like I have worked here for much longer than a week and a half.
Having steeled myself for my time here, I feel as though I'm ready to take on my ultimate goal one step at a time. Off to a good start so far; I hope to keep my feet planted on the ground as I continue to make progress here at the national Society of Physics Students office.
Although a little less invigorating than last week, this week has been about settling in. It is strange being able to get up at 6am with almost no problems now, especially because that was not something I ever accomplished in High School. So far at work the exhibit has been going along smoothly.
I have really become immersed in my project at the Niels Bohr Library & Archives this past week. Along with fellow intern, Tori, I am currently working to create a museum exhibit to showcase why the history of physics matters.
