In the thick of things

So last week was my first week over at the Department of Transportation. Although the Federal Government seriously needs to consider hiring an interior decorator--gray wall to wall?, really?!! I can tell I'll have a great time there. The first day I arrived we drove out to St. Michaels on the Eastern Shore. GORGEOUS. Apparently they don't do this every Monday though, darn! But it was  a great way to meet everyone on the team and it was a gorgeous day.

My boss is super nice and I can tell they really want to give me really tasks to do-not just pencil pushing, so I'm working with different federal agencies to look at Best Practices to address performance gaps in existing programming. Its really cool--I know I'm geeking out now--but it is!

Minus the sweltering heat. Its been really really really really hot these past few weeks. I hear we're supposed to get a bit of a break this week. I NEED IT! I went home last weekend to see one of my oldest and dearest friends get married. You know, I never understood why people cry at weddings in the movies. But as she was walking down the aisle, I definitely felt my eyes watering up.

And yesterday I had the opportunity to relax with my family. Took the bus back and got home lateeee last night. So I'm definitely wiped and today will be a bit rough :) but here's to one more awesome month of our internships!
