It’s been a long time since I’ve updated you all on what’s going on in the city. I’m a terrible blogger.
Things have been moving along quickly, with plenty of fun times and an equal amount of intense studying. Everybody has been getting along and doing some amazing things.
First of all, Sarah and Stephanie planned the Gulf War Remembrance event in February, and enlisted Jen and I to take some pictures for their supervisor. We all met Admiral Mullen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and talked with him for a bit about our internships and DC. He was incredible – and we got a great picture with him!
We’ve been to the Pentagon, the World War I Memorial, the Holocaust Museum (twice), the Museum of Jewish Military History, the National Archives, the Library of Congress, and a whole lot of places in between. We got to attend a round table with a Holocaust survivor, an oral history project supervisor, and a National Archives lead archivist. We’ve spoken with National Parks Services employees, WWII concentration camp liberators, Holocaust survivors, museum exhibit creators, researchers, archivists, and some interesting WWII specialists. I’ve been overwhelmed by the amount of learning I’ve been doing!
To top it all off, I’m doing great work at my internship. I’m working on a project right now that is very exciting – so exciting that I can’t actually talk about it on here. Bummer.
It’s starting to get warm in DC, and the workload is starting to get intense! Hopefully the next time I update won’t be too far in the future – there’s plenty coming up that is worth sharing.
