Time to go back to the mainland. It’s going to be tough getting used to the fact that there won’t be a perfect beach right down the street. It’s also going to be sad leaving all of the friends that I have made from the program. After a quick (few hour) packing, we are going to have a few hours to roam around. Then it’s going to be non-stop until Monday night for me. I’ll be hopping on a train up to Union Station as soon as we fly back to LA, then I’ll be taking a Megabus up to San Jose, Caltrain up to Mountain View and then finally crashing in my new apartment… right before my first day of work.
It’s been a great program. I have learned so much about Hawai’i, the people, the culture, and the landscape. I am super happy about all of the software and instrumentation knowledge that I have gained. I hope that when I get back to Maryland I will still use all of what I have gained.
Thanks CSULB and NSF.
