I've been home now for about 2 weeks and let me tell you, it has been quite the adjustment! Coming home has made me realize how much I want to go back to DC. So much so that I've bought a ticket to go back for a weekend to visit some friends! For my final post I just wanted to give future TWC-ers a list of things that I wish had been included in our orientation. To all new interns, good luck and have fun!
We're almost done, but not quite yet. After Monday's commencement ceremony, it really started to hit me that this semester was almost over. Today we had a Farewell BBQ put on by Residents Life which only made it worse!
Last Friday was the best day of my life. The reason being I got to staff the Womens Leadership Forum Conference put on by Women for Obama. At the Conference Lilly Ledbetter of the Lilly Ledbetter Equal Pay for Equal Work act, Jim Messina President Obama's campaign manager, Cecile Richards president of Planned Parenthood, and even President Obama himself spoke to a crowd of over 400 women leaders.
So these past two weeks have been incredible but also jam packed so I'm going to have to give you the rundown in two posts, otherwise it would be way too long and you wouldn't want to read it all.
It's been a while! I've been busy, busy as the end of the semester draws near but fortunately it's given me a whole lot to talk about so I hope you're all ready! I'm Coming Home
What a hectic 2 weeks! Last weekend my parents and Stephanie's sister came to visit and this weekend three of Anna's sisters and a friend came down to visit her. It was really nice to see everyone. I love playing hostess! I also loved being able to show my parents around the city. I feel like I've finally been living in DC long enough to show them not only the usual stuff like the monuments and museums, but some cool stuff that most tourists don't get to see.
Wow! This week has made up for the past 2 weeks being so slow! I went to the White House UK Welcoming Ceremony, the TWC International festival, and the National Zoo. The US-UK Relationship
Well, March Madness is upon us and St. Patrick's day is next weekend. Two of my favorite holidays (yes, I count March Madness as a holiday). This past week has been realitively slow, nothing too exciting at work or programing but this upcoming week should be really good!
I have to say, DC is the smallest big city I've ever been to.
Unfortunately my weeks seem to be becoming calmer and calmer as time goes on so I'm struggling to find good blogging content. This week I decided to take some time to talk about my class, Campaigning for a Cause: How Advocacy Groups Change the World. My Monday Nights
