Ok, enough of the French. I mean, I think it's French...Google says it's French.
I hope everyone had a great friday, I know I did! I will say though, now that I have successfully completed my second week at work, and the morning excitement has worn off a bit, I've been sleeping in later and later all week. Just practice for sleeping in tomorrow I suppose.

I was busy at work again today, creating schedules, reading up on news, adding ideas to papers, going to meetings, etc.! I keep getting thanked for helping out at work, but I'm like it's no problem, really. It's my job!! But I'm glad to help out anyways. I enjoy having work to do and staying busy. I also enjoy seeing what I've done, and seeing how much I am helping out, especially on a project as big as Children's Congress.
I went out to eat with the other intern today as well. We walked down Broadway a little bit, turned around, walked back, and walked into a shop neither of us had ever been too. It was a cross between a Deli, Buffet, and Convience Store...without the convient prices. Still it was nice having warm food and not a sandwich! After lunch, I had a meeting/conference call figuring stuff out for Children's Congress, and that lasted until 4. I worked until 5, said my goodbyes, and headed out the door.
It was such a beautiful day outside, that I had to make my way somewhere, and do something! I knew that they were still filming the movie on Wall Street and Broad Street, so I made my past here. I just kept walking, and even passed the subway station which I normally take. I did have a goal in mind to eventually get to. I wanted to walk the Brooklyn Bridge Home. Well I just wanted to see where my feet took me, which sometimes isn't a good idea, but I made sure to staying well populated areas and consult my map once in a while. At one point during my walk, I did have to speed up my pace, as I pretended to know where I was going. No worries though, that only lasted about 2 sec. I ended up just making a square, which was good, because I was actually going the wrong way.
I finally found my way, with more map help, to the Brooklyn Bridge, and there was a shaddy looking sign saying Brooklyn Bridge Walkway, and an arrow pointing to under the bridge in a construction zone area. Now, I am smarter than to just go there myself, so I waited until I saw a Man in a suit head in that direction, and I followed him. No worries though, it let me exactly where I wanted to be! So then I walked the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a beautiful walk, and I made it home. It took probably an hour and a half total to get back home.

There was a movie/music video maybe/something...being filmed right outside my apartment building door when I got home. They weren't filming when I walked in, just talking about the shoot, but there were cameras, a director, actor, and pieces of a mobile set. That was kinda cool. I found I had a package from home that I finally went to pick up! Thanks mom and dad!!!

I've got big plans for tomorrow with my roommate and some of her intern friends! :)
Bonne nuit, et vous parler tout plus tard!
