Wow. The week went so fast. Over the weekend, I went to Kings Dominion in Virginia and it was a lot of fun. It was supposed to be a deaf event day, however, I did not see a lot of deaf people, probably because I was busy running to each of the roller coaster rides there! Kings Dominion has motivated me to go to Hershey Park this summer. I do not know if I will go there for sure but I am hoping to.
Not that I am trying to get away from D.C. I cherish D.C. every moment. I love how I wake up every morning, walk to the metro then after work, I go back to metro to home. I am thinking about walking sometimes from work to home; but the weather has been really warm or I have the wrong pair of shoes for me to walk. One day, I know I will. I am not giving up on this mission.
Work is pretty good so far. My co-workers are really friendly. I have a co-worker who is motivated to learn sign language. I feel that my co-workers will always have a place in my heart. This is definitely an experience I will not forget. I like the tasks I have at work. Sometimes the days can feel a little bit long, perhaps because I am tired. This is a good work experience for me. I am getting an opportunity to explore to see what I am may be interested in pursuing for a job upon graduation. Thus far I am enjoying the work I am doing as an intern.
I finally met my mentor, Seth Bravin. We met only for a short time, but I am glad that we were able to hit it off. We talked as if we knew each other for a long while. He seems to be doing well on his own. He mentioned what AAPD has been talking all about: NETWORK. NETWORK. NETWORK. He emphasized that networking is really important in the professional world.
