Today was our last day to prepare for our presentations in the morning! I cannot believe that we’ll all be leaving in less than forty eight hours. I’m going to be so sad to see everyone go. I may have not known these people that long but after living together for a month I have made some amazing friends. I hope we all still stay in touch. Luckily modern technology can be of use. Today was used for making my power point and writing my final paper. It’s extremely gratifying to see it all come together and all the work pay off in a physical way. I can now appreciate how much background work goes into all the pretty maps that I see all of the time. The reality of research is much different than the idealistic idea that we often have in our head. My paper seemed to come easier after I had finished the PowerPoint. It gave me a frame of reference to follow. It’s quite a relief to have things wrapping up nicely. I also managed to save Jeanette from a toad. I think that I’m one of the only ones that isn’t bothered by the frogs, spiders, cows, and other critters. Except for the centipedes. I can’t deal with those. We also watched the moon rise with Dr. Wechsler. Presentations tomorrow, wish me luck!
