Summer's Past

Since the beginning of the internship, I had been planning for this week. Sending out invitations, looking up contact information, hiring interpreters and a recorder, ordering food, buying supplies, creating materials, etc. What was this important event, you ask? On Tuesday we hosted a roundtable discussion on healthcare transition for youth with disabilities and chronic conditions at the Youth Transition Center. With 32 participants, the event proved to be a stimulating discussion and all our hard work appeared to pay off. Now that this event is over however, I really feel as if my internship is quickly coming to an end. Between having to say goodbye to a fellow intern two weeks earlier than expected and visiting with my Mom and Aunt this weekend, I feel as if my internship is over already even though I know I have 12 days left in D.C. In the time I have left, I am going to make a point to see as much of the city as possible. Even though I've been here for two months, I still feel as if I haven't seen most of the city. There is always something else to see or do. With one more weekend left, I plan to make the most of my time and visit museums and chic neighborhoods that I have yet to see. Whether I will be able to fit everything in, however, is another story.
