Wow. I cant believe Im at this point. My security clearance for the Department of Homeland Security has finally come. Thanks to everyone who helped, I will be starting my job tomorrow. I am excited and a little nervous. I will be ready for tomorrow though. I will make sure when I am done with this post to slow myself down, calmly make sure everything is ready, get up bright and early, and ROCK tomorrow.
Still, I am sorry to be leaving the AAPD office. It was a great place to work that gave me the opportunity to go to a Senatorial hearing, write for the AAPD’s website blog, read a house committee hearing transcript, and learn about healthcare. And it was a great place to be when word came that the ACA passed. Above all, it was a terrific office environment to work in. The people were nice and incredibly patient, which is someone I know I need (well would REALLY like) in my job. A big thanks to everyone who gave me a great opportunity and experience.
What to report on aside from that? Not much. I had a very relaxing weekend, with the day in which I did the most activity probably being today. Despite the heat and blackouts, I am proud to say I braved the elements and bought a truckload of food! I like to think I complete Joseph Cambell’s heroes journey (for those curious, yes I am being extremely over dramatic and have never actually read that book. Just having some, well, over-the-top fun ;)) I have also been watching some interesting stuff on internet tv. More great specials from Terry Jones, along with the Animal Planet special Mermaid: the Body Found. Its….well let me put it this way. It made me reflect on the dangers of billing that which is fictional as non-fictional too aggressively. But still tremendously engaging and fun to watch for what it is worth.
Well, see you all next week!
