Once again another week has flown by; I can’t believe that I only have two weeks left in my internship! The end of the internship is bittersweet. I am sad to finish my work at the Bazelon Center, I have learned so much here. I know what I have learned here will make me an infinitely better attorney. At the same time I am excited about starting my fellowship with Mental Disability Advocacy Center. Because I will be moving abroad in September, I spent part of my week searching for apartments in Hungary. It has been such a challenge to get a good apartment, in a safe location, for a decent price!
The best part of my week was watching Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice with some of my fellow AAPD interns. What was really cool about this staging of the Merchant of Venice was that it was sign interpreted. I have never seen a play with sign performers, it was truly amazing! The play was also interesting because it was staged in the 1920’s. At first it was challenging to follow what was being said, however, after the first few acts I was able to wrap my brain around what was being said. Overall, it was a lot of fun to spend time with my fellow interns, do something cultural, and learn more about sign language.
