Yeah, yeah, I know what your thinking, she got into a great DC school. No such luck, yet. Instead I have been asked by my professional society, the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) to go to DC as part of their CVD (Congressional Visits Day). They try and get engineers and scientists to fly into DC and visit with their representatives. The goal is to try and personally meet with representatives and tell them what engineers' perspectives are on current issues in front of the Congress. I'm pretty excited. I get to go back to DC, which is one of my favorite cities and at the same time I get to do some good. I'll also be tacking on an extra day to visit schools in the area in case the Class of 2011 plan becomes a reality.
