Sixteen hours later today has come full circle from a lab day to a lab night. Morning started off slow as I tried to piece together all of my thoughts into a paper. It was approaching lunch time and I hadn’t gotten too far along with piecing together my research. Jessica suggested I create my power point before writing the paper, that way I could visualize what I would talk about during my presentation and the writing would come easier. I took her advice and have been working on perfecting my maps since then. Here is a snapshot of what my power point will look like!
I am very excited for tomorrow, I can see my project coming closer to being somewhat realized! Around dinner time I felt a block coming on and thoughts of presenting an unfinished investigation of groundwater submergence and emergence filled my poor little head. I was convinced I would be presenting an inconclusive study. After speaking to Dr. Becker, Emily, and Michelle it became clearer that I did have enough data to back up my initial reasoning. I guess sometimes it just takes other peoples input to be fully satisfied with what you already have.
Tomorrow I will be finishing up my power point and completing my paper. Hopefully there’s enough time to practice before we present this Friday.
