I can already tell my presence on campus is being missed profusely. Since I’m going to be in D.C. this semester, all my friends stuck on campus have been trying to find a way to fill the holes in their hearts. Even my residents from when I was an RA texted me telling me how much they missed me. I definitely felt
like a celebrity the love.
On a more serious note, I have been missing everyone on campus and it has been weird seeing the semester start and me not going to class/being with everyone. I don’t think this semester will hit me until I finally move into D.C. My pals Lisa and Elissa took a photo with my RA photo that’s still hanging up in the building. Looks like my legacy is still living on!
Currently I’m a ball of nerves and excitement for my new adventure this semester. I’m hoping I don’t somehow get lost and end up in New York City. Although, now that I think about it, that would be kind of fun.
I’m still on the board!
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!
