My summer internship is in a patent boutique firm in Falls Church, VA.
The firm is known for "wine and dine"--they usually have good food and party.
The people were also kind and welcoming.
In fact, I was surprised how easy-going the people are. I was expecting a more harsh, people-as-slave working environment. But the hours are reasonable, and people seem to have normal lives.
Last weekend the firm had a 3 day trip to Rocky Gap, MD.
The place is a resort, with a golf course, a lake, some biking tracks and a pool.
I went bass fishing (got 6 fish) and paint ball shooting (漆彈射擊) both were new to me and interesting.
All and all I'm quite happy with my summer internship.
