The Intern Report

Hello all,

It has been a while since I last said hello and brought you up to speed with the Intern department. Well let me tell you, it has been a blast down here. I have enjoyed every second of my internship and have learned more in one semester than I have in 29 years of life. I am grateful for the opportunity that Ben Kramer and his group has afforded me. I cannot believe that in 8 days, my time here, as an intern, will come to an end. If you see me crying in the lounge, it is because I will miss each and everyone of you. NRCC is an exceptional place to be and I encourage all of you to take advantage of everything it has to offer. A quote for all of you to take to heart, “80% of the final exam will be based on the one lecture you missed and the one book you didn’t read”, so go to class and read the book…it really does help.
