I had a meeting with my supervisor to go over my research, and what came out of that meeting was an understanding that it has actually been pretty much done for weeks and I didn't realize it. Now we're on the same page! It feels good.
My supervisor is the greatest. She keeps asking if there's anything I'd like to do, anything left on "my list," but I have no idea how to answer her! A huge part of my summer in DC was discovering the city I've been living in, but sometimes I wish that I had come to DC with a better idea of what the city offers in the way of history, entertainment. Even knowing where the quiet bubbles of nature would have been glorious information.
We may go out to lunch on my last day. Someone else had mentioned going to happy hour after work, but even though DC is famous for both brunch and happy hour, I've only taken a shining to one of them. Drinking isn't something that appeals to me, especially in a city where I rely on public transportation and getting around on my own. Oh well. Sodas are served at happy hour, as well.
After work, I took my officemates home with me and I made Tex-Mex Falafel for dinner. It was amazing... once I got the hang of frying food. Every cook needs a humbling experience now and then -- mine was having an apartment full of smoke because I'm used to cooking with a couple tablespoons of oil at the most, not half an inch in the pan. Oops.
In the end, it was a delicious marriage of two things that these Texas students enjoy!
