It was a long hot summer and I loved every second of it! I spent my summer being an RA and studying for the LSAT (which keeps coming sooner and sooner). I also spent a lot of my time at my internship at the Sagamore Institute as a summer intern and a research assistant. It was so fun getting to live on campus during the summer because there weren’t many people around and I had tons of places to study without fear of not having a spot.
Now that the semester has started again, I’ve been back to doing schoolwork and still studying. Already I’ve been getting projects, assignments, research tasks, and RA duties which have been keeping me busy! I’ve done homework all weekend so I plan on having a more relaxing Sunday.
But just because the semester has recently started, that doesn’t mean, however, that I’m not looking forward to fall break. It just can’t come fast enough!

Today at my internship with the Indiana Democratic Party, we had a luncheon with donors to the party. It was great seeing the political process come to life with representatives from around the state. There were about 30 attendees and Senator Joe Donnelly was the guest speaker.
After we spoke we ate dessert and went back to our office. There I was able to deftly nab a photo with the Senator. It ended up being a fun time talking to the various guests and eating the great food! It was by far one of my favorite days at my internship. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of my internship experience this semester. And on top of it all, I get course credit for it!
