9/11 Week Reflection

Good Essays
This week included much activity with meetings, rain and the storm that never happened. Monday began with a Right on Crime communications meeting. It was interesting to sit through and hear what all was going on throughout the RoC organization. Then I went back to my desk to try and finish out the TPPF communications project I had been working on since Thursday. After lunch, I was informed about another weekly meeting with RoC, the policy call was also informative and I learned about what some of our signatories are doing in their states and areas. Following that Call, I finished out the day by finishing the communications project. Tuesday started out ordinary and I was able to finally begin the reading for the Thinking Economically class. Then it was time …show more content…
Once done with lunch and panic mode I continued reading and researching HB 48. Last Friday Derick had given me an assignment to write eight hundred words on HB 48 and I wanted to get started on the research. Then I left early at 2pm just as the rest of the office did since there was much panic over the weather. Wednesday I opted to work from home since while TS Bill passed us there was talk that the tail end of the storm would drench us, but alas, TS Bill once again faked out the weather experts. While at home I read more of the Thinking Economically assignments until Shannon emailed me with a new project that had me putting all our ROC supporters and their email addresses into a spreadsheet. While working on that Gregg Gold contacted me regarding a previous assignment that was put on the back burner and requested it be completed. Thursday morning started off with me finishing the project for Gregg and then the intern meeting at 10 am with The Center for Education Freedom where we learned all about school choice and the obstacles to passing the bill in this last legislative
