What's up? My name is Heather Lunn and it is my first week at AIP. I have learned so much this week it is unreal. The first day I met so many people (many of who are extremely important) and I still don't remember all of their names! I feel really wierd having my very own cubical and all, and I work in a beautiful building. I have had to learn which direction each line of the metro is headed in or go the completely wrong direction, which I feel that everyone must do at least once. One of the biggest things I have learned so far is that I may feel compeletly overwhelmed with tons to do, but haste makes waste, and if you only want to do it once, take your time. Fortuneately, I learned this the easy way! :) Before this year I was not real big on using e-mail because my school sends out these junk student mail things that just clog up my e-mail, but using it at AIP is essential. I will be representing AIP at the CNSF event on June 22 along with another intern and I have learned volumes about the programs already. Beware world: AIP is out to change everyone's view (children's too) about how and what science really is. They are also working their butts off to improve our science and math teachers across the nation. This is very important to me because I know what it is like to have a horrible teacher for a subject that is very important to me. In other words, I am very excited to go to the CNSF event at Capitol Hill in DC. Boy, the coffee is good here, and free too!! Well, time to get back to work, meetings to attend, more people to meet and notes to take for CNSF!!
