Happy Friday! How did your week go? Mine went by so fast, with lots of highs and lows. I am definitely ready for the weekend! Day 3 of my internship went pretty well yesterday. Still not much to do since the legislature isn't in session right now. It might pick up when they go back in August but we will see. I did, however, get to write my first "thank-you" letter to some kids who did a good deed in their community. The assemblyman sends out various thanks-you's and congrats letter to outstanding citizens and the like. Then I got to edit a response letter to someone who supported one of the bills that the assemblyman had not voted for. I learned some new things on how to do these letters with templates, addresses, and printing; so all in all it was a better day. Then the three of us who were in the office got to talking about college and grad school. I am struggling on my college application essays and they are struggling on their grad school essays. O the joys of school and fighting for the education you want. Now on to the Finisher!
