I wish I could say that I had found a lab to research in, but I can’t. To be perfectly honest, I am a tad relieved because this quarter I have a lot on my plate. Don’t get me wrong, I really want to start doing research, but with Ochem lab 8 hours a week plus about 3 hours of write ups per lab total (how is this only a 3 unit class again?) and midterms coming up, having research to do on top of that would be hectic. For everyone else on here who is doing research this quarter I admire you. I hope all your classes and research are going well! I guess I will just have to continue the search for myself!
Since I have no actual research to talk about, I guess I will update everyone on my classes. I am loving my Spanish 3 class; I forgot how much I enjoyed learning a new language. And I didn’t realize how much I actually remembered from high school! Even though the class is 4 days a week at 9, I don’t really mind getting up for it. It’s definitely more fun and less work than Ochem! Speaking of Ochem, Lipshutz’s class has proven to be quite difficult. We have a midterm next week and I am going to have to do a ton of studying this weekend. There is just so much to know! And EEMB and MCDB are going well. The lectures and reading aren’t too bad, although only having one midterm and one final shall be interesting grade-wise.
In other news, I went on a cool hike last weekend up to 7 falls. There was actually water running in the creek which was nice because it was such a hot day! We hiked all the way up to the top of a ridge that looked over all of SB and the ocean which was absolutely gorgeous and then waded up the creek a ways to cool off. It was definitely nice to take a mental health weekend.
Back to the books this week/weekend though. Gotta demolish that ochem midterm.
