Week three starts after a weekend back in Richmond that I really enjoyed. As I entered my second week of work at DOT I started receiving more and more assignments. I am currently trying to organize an event where a group of youth from Virginia will come into the DRC to learn about working in the federal government. They can also see first hand the various accommodation options that a job can offer. Outside of work I am enjoying the many options that Washington DC has to offer from art galleries to the many monuments. Today I visited the National Cathedral which I found to be an architectural masterpiece. Last night I walked to the Washington Monument which is very beautiful at night. Tomorrow it is off to more Smithsonian art galleries and another day of walking, walking, walking or in my case rolling, rolling, rolling.
It is hard for me to imagine that the internship is almost 1/3 of the way over but after this upcoming work week that will be the case. Time is certainly flying as I am starting to adapt to getting up early enough (I am NOT an early bird) to make the metro and get to work on time. I assume that just about the time I really turn this into a habit the internship will be over and then I’ll have to totally readjust my sleep pattern all over again to get back to my mid-morning class start times.
