Happy Friday Fam!

It’s hard to believe that another week of the summer has flown by already. If you’ve been keeping up with my weekly blog, you know that my time in D.C. has been marked with new experiences, people, and opportunities.

 However, in all the newness there has also been routine. The routine of morning workouts; the routine of working at the Foundation Monday through Friday; the routine of methodically working towards the completion of my summer research project. I could go on, but I think you get the picture. We’ve all heard that routine and discipline lead to long-term, sustained success. While that’s true, routine can serve many purposes; I’m realizing that it can also be the key to living a life full of firsts. So, you want to know a couple of firsts that I had this week? (I know you do, so check out my pics below ;]  

So, I’ve been identifying potential graduate programs as part of my individual growth plan (IDP). This week I had a chance to Skype the program director at UCF, which was a first for me. Fun fact is that he’s also from da Bayou!

For those of you who know me, I love sports! I had never been to a MLB baseball game before though. Wednesday, my fellow QEM interns and I watched the Washington Nationals crush the Chicago Cubs (sorry Cubs fans). Check out that view though!
