It’s now 4 weeks into the semester and things are starting to pick up.
I’ve hung up my rainboots (actually I finally tossed them out) for the summer and I’ve traded my field notebook for textbooks. I’ve also presented my summer research findings at the Fall Research Symposium.
More on that later. First, let me tell you what I woke up to this morning. The smoke detector. That’s right. My alarm was set for 9am but the smoke detector went off at 8:20. And why did it go off? Someone took a really hot shower. Talk about a rude awakening. But, I can’t really complain since I set off the smoke detector in the kitchen a few weeks ago when I was frying some chicken. I’m still working on the whole cooking thing.
The Fall Research Symposium was-for lack of a better word-awesome. It was cool to see what other people researched this summer, and I was able to tell others what I found! I think there were around 50-60 of us in the Math and Sciences that presented posters, and 26 from the Biology department! I still haven’t decided whether or not to turn that research into a senior thesis, but I’m leaning towards yes.
Anyway, these past few weeks have been great. But now, there are more assignments to be done, but also all the fall TV shows start around this time. Don’t they know that it’s a bad time for us college students to start watching TV? I mean, do I work on my paper for animal physiology that’s due next week or do I watch the season premiere of Glee? Now I have to sort out my priorities!
For tonight, though, I think I’ll watch Glee AND do my homework at the same time. Multitasking for the win!
