The Last Week

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Hello!   Well, all good things must come to an end, including this blog and my summer in D.C.   2016 Presidential Elections

Getting to know the government

Wednesday, August 05, 2015

Hello! The summer is winding down but that doesn’t mean I’m slowing down! This week was full of exploring places in the government, which is something I’d never be able to do at home.   Tours galore!

Making a Name for Myself

Friday, July 31, 2015

Hello again!   I can already see the end of my summer in Washington approaching. I know I’m going to miss Washington a lot, but I’m also starting to miss home and my family. If I could have my family, dog, and bed here, I’d be the happiest girl on earth! I definitely don't miss the Miami heat and humidity, though. In the meantime, I am enjoying my last couple of weeks at work!   All a-Twitter

An Eventful Week

Monday, July 27, 2015

Hello!   This past week was incredibly fun and incredibly active. I don’t think I relaxed until Saturday! While I woke up every morning just as tired as I feel asleep, I don’t regret any of it because I have had so much fun doing everything. I just make sure to catch up on my sleep on the weekends.   Working Hard

Networking in the City

Monday, July 20, 2015

Hello again!   It seems that I get busier and busier every week; I’ve been squeezing in updating my blog on nights, right before I go to bed! July is going by way too fast because I can already see the date I return home on my calendar.   Work, work, work!

Happy Independence Day!

Monday, July 13, 2015

Hello again!   I can say with certainty that I have crossed an item off my bucket list: spending Independence Day in Washington, D.C.!   My roommates and I unanimously decided at the start of our time in D.C. that we would see the fireworks at the National Mall on the Fourth of July; we did exactly that.  

Hello, July!

Monday, July 06, 2015

Hello again! It's already July and we're in the midst of summer! The start of July also means that it's the week of the Fourth of July, so the city has been strangely quiet yet crowded with tourists coming in for the holiday.   Just because it’s a long weekend, doesn’t mean there’s no work to be done!

Has it really been a month?

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Hello again! Can you believe I’ve been in D.C. for a month?! It’s going by so fast!   This past week was a hectic one, with at least one event every day!  

Hello again!   I feel like my time in D.C. is going by so quickly and I don’t know how to find time to do all the things I want to do! I’m constantly tired and go to sleep within a couple of minutes every night, but it’s worth it. Some days I’m dashing from event to event but other days I’m at my office all day, working on press releases, reports, and research.   Learning something new every day

A Busy Start to a Busy Summer

Sunday, June 14, 2015

Glad to see you've returned to read about my experience in D.C.!
