This week started off with Saturday’s Astronomy on the Mall. Unlike most of the interns, I worked with my organization’s table, and all of my mentor’s high school students.

This week was filled with mostly researching on what I'll be doing for the rest of the internship as well as getting ready for conferences in October! For the majority of the internship, I'll be focusing on one specific food: Maja Blanca!

Hi y’all! Before I begin, I want to acknowledge that there were some Supreme Court decisions this week that you may find distressing, as I do. That said, I am saving a full discussion of the Supreme Court term for next week after the final decisions are released.

I had a weird week this week. On Monday I went to the beach with a few of the other interns, only to find out while there that my roommate tested positive for COVID-19. I became a bit paranoid as I had been a bit tired the past 2 days – a bit more than usual.

This week was really fun! Last wednesday we had a get together with all the interns for a small "picnic" sort of thing. It was really nice chill event for us to have after working on a long wednesday.
