Last day in the office

Well, the day has finally come though I never believed it would: my last day in the office!

In many senses it was just like any other day. I answered the phones, gave a tour, and did my other daily tasks, trying to forget that it would be the last time I would be doing many of these things I came to love. After finishing most of my projects for the day, I had a chance to take one last walk through the Capitol halls and was able to get in many of my tourist pics I usually only passed by on tours. As I was wandering through the cavernous tunnels and grandiose columns I still felt in shock that I was really in the place where history was made.

My friend asked me the other day, “Does that crazy feeling of being in the Capitol ever go away?” No, I don’t think it does, even when you know where your going and recognize many faces along the way, history always finds a way to prevail in a place that has seen so many important challenges and tribulations.

Interning in D.C. has truly been a wonderful and eye-opening experience. From navigating the city to truly participating in the policy process I enjoyed every minute of it. I am also very grateful to an engaging and supportive group of co-workers who constantly challenged me in my role to strive for excellence. I would not trade this quarter for the world.
