Well, what are you doing?!
This weekend is parents weekend along with a few Halloween parties, so some of my friends’ parents are coming down to have some fun (my mom isn’t though). I have done a lot since the last post, with mainly going to the Society for Neuroscience conference, and attending the Summer Research Symposium.The Research symposium was awesome and I got to present and talk to other professors and students who were interested in fly genetics looking at pretty flies. I really enjoyed my research experience over the summer and I really would like to thank my Professor (Professor Webster) for taking a freshman like me into her lab and getting to learn so many things.
As for the academic work and other things, I’ve made some new friends. I’m really close to my lab mate, Jess which I call her “J-dwag” and we have lunches together and talk about things. I”m also really good friends with my RA Jeremy , I call him “J-man”, and we have tea times together and play some computer games (starcarft) on the weekends. My roommate is also pretty good too, we’ve been playing Super Smash Brothers on the N64. The intro biology lab I TA in is also really awesome and the I like the students in there along with the lab instructor (who is also coincidentally my Genetics professor).
As for my classes, they aren’t doing so well (well as in B’s for me) with intro to Psychology as my worst class (I had a really terrible grade for my first exam and quizzes). Although my sociology class is my best class so far and I’m doing well in it. I have a lot of work to do now though so I’ll leave you with that. Enjoy your Halloween and I’ll give you another post about my time in New Orleans at the Society for Neuroscience.
Also remember if you have any questions for question Fridays, you can comment with them or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! And I will try to answer them to the best of my abilities.
