Where has the summer gone by? It’s the last and final week and I can’t help but be sad that is has come to an end. The only thing I have left to do is present on the day of the symposium! The day we have all been prepping and waiting for. I feel well prepared to present my research this Friday!
Throughout the process of our weekly deadlines, I was able to finish my paper without any problem. Since we had deadlines, I was able to break down my paper and have it done by the time the rough draft was due. Getting the poster board ready for the Summer Research Symposium was easy compared to the paper, since I was able to pull important points from each section and add them to the board. Overall the weekly deadlines worked to my advantage. The only bump on the road I got was trying to adjust the images so they wouldn’t pixelate for the poster board.
The most challenging part of this week was trying to be at two places at once. This week Sunday I had to move out of New Hall to my new location since CA training started this week. I had to juggle my CA training workshops while still preparing for the symposium on Friday.
Now that this summer has come to an end, I can’t wait to see what the future has in store. I plan on doing future research, maybe an extension of my project or a new topic. I am positive this won’t be the only time I keep my research ongoing. This program has definitely brought me to think of graduate school. I plan on applying to a graduate school and see what happens from there. I’m very excited to see what the future has stored for me!
With that note, here is the last picture I took my with my two favorite gals: Lucia and Christie! This picture highlights out times together over the summer. LAUGHTER!
