So I know that technically, today is Thursday, not Monday, but man, it sure feels like a Monday. On the first actual Monday this week I spent roughly 6 hours transcribing the worksheets and surveys that we had our subjects fill out. The final Word document was 30 pages long. At times, I felt like brain was going to start melting out of my ears (do you know how hard it is to intentionally misspell words? I typed “artic” so often I’m half convinced that that is the correctly spelling…), but then someone would have a comment that was very insightful or interesting or funny, so that would wake me up a bit. Tuesday was spent figuring out pie charts on Excel. One particular one was especially challenging, but I did get it in the end, so that was good. You’ll see it on my poster. Even if you don’t notice how awesome it is, I will point it out, because I worked very hard on that thing!
Then it was Wednesday Weekend! All us interns (well, almost all of us), had a great bbq in the park. Many of us had family members who were able to come too, so that was really fun meeting everyone. I learned that I am not going to win any “Ladder” championships anytime soon, but that’s alright. I still had fun, even though I lost horribly.
And now it’s Monday again. On a Thursday. I spent the morning trying to remind myself of all the MATLAB stuff I had learned last week. It did not go super great. I will get it eventually though. That’s what I was doing when I decided I needed a break, in the form of a blog. This still counts as working though, right? Maybe?
