It's not very often that Monday is included as being part of one of the most awesome weekends of your life, so here's a whole blog post about how great one of my Mondays was and how very different it was from the last Monday I wrote about.  

As busy as TWC interns are during the week (and considering how early most of us have to wake up), you'd think we would just want to sleep in all weekend and do relaxing things like bum around, watch movies, and be on Tumblr all day. This would normally be the case, but the thing about Washington, D.C. is that there's never a dull moment in the city, and the fact that we're only here for 15 weekends gives us the motivation to get out there and do it all.  

A Day in the Life; Part 1 (Weekday)

If you're reading this blog post right now, more likely than not, you know about the TWC website and have been frantically searching for information about what we interns actually spend 10-to-15 weeks doing on a day-to-day basis, to little or no avail.

Snow. Such a simple phenomenon, really. The existing water droplets in clouds transform into ice crystals because of the low temperature in the atmosphere. The ice crystals that fall to the ground when the cloud is ready to release them are called snowflakes, and they are the perfect, tiny, hexagonal, unique centerpieces of this type of precipitation that billions of people experience every day, all around the world.

"I'm sorry, what was your name again?" That's something I've been hearing a lot for the past week. "Fabiana," I've been replying patiently; I expected this. Don't get me wrong, it's not like people back home in Miami or at the University of Florida can usually understand my name on the first try. But it has become increasingly obvious that Dorothy is not in Kansas anymore.
