This summer I will be in Washington, D.C. doing an internship at the National Air and Space Museum. Come with me on my big adventure!

Sometimes it's ok to accept candy from strangers.

As my internship comes to a close (in a week and a half) I have a combination of conflicting feelings. I am going to be very sad to leave this wonderful city! I have seen so much, realized a lot about myself, my abilities, my wants, and my needs, and I've made some fulfilling friendships along the way. I'm going to miss the old people volunteers who make funny jokes about being drunk, getting soviet union coins as payment for making copies of "First drink's on us!" coupons, coloring pictures and seeing how long they stay on the staff fridge before someone takes them down, getting free chocolate for loitering outside a late-night candy store, learning about planes, riding the metro, always having something to do, meeting astronauts, chatting with the elevator operators, and being surrounded by amazing pieces of history. I love Washington D.C. I have learned that it is important to strike out on your own when you're young. I learned that you can get along with people that aren't exactly your type, and that sometimes it's ok to let go of people that weigh you down.

Whoa that ^ was some heavy shit!

Now for something completely different!

But seriously folks, I've had the time of my life. I know now that Utah is too small a place for even this tiny person. I want to see places! Do things! Now I know I can, and will. See Madelyn go. See Madelyn make you jealous because of all the amazing things she's done this summer. See Madelyn in less than 2 weeks! See Madelyn kick the ass of this cold she has had for the last two days. See ya, germs!
