Summer Research

Hi all, I can believe that I’m already in Summer quarter!! Wohoooo!!! I hope you all are enjoying your first week of Summer break or maybe your first day of Summer quarter at school 🙂 I haven’t started my first day of Summer classes yet, it will actually be tomorrow. But I did start my first day of research!! 🙂 It was a really fun and interesting new experience. I met the grad student that I will be working for, some new friends, and got to know the lab itself. Learning new lab technique is always fun, but learning to navigate a building and my ways around it is not so much fun for me. I am pretty bad with directions (meaning I’m really bad with directions), so trying to memorize different ways to get to a specific room is not always the easiest thing for me. I am learning my way around the new building, and hopefully I will master it pretty soon (cross my finger) Anyway, this last week break was really fun. I got to rest, meet my friends from community college, do some room cleaning, and last but not least, close off my one year at Disneyland. My annual pass will expire soon and the block out dates are coming so quick, so I have to bid my year at Disneyland goodbye 😦 I went to Downtown Disney on Friday, which is really relaxing; and watched the movie Brave 🙂 For those that are Pixar fans, Brave is a really good movie!! And then on Sunday, I went to Disneyland for the whole day. I haven’t spent that long at Disneyland in awhile, so it was pretty tiring. By the end of the day, my feet were all sore. Nevertheless, it was a really fun week and weekend. I am sad I won’t be able to go to Disneyland that often anymore but I’m super glad that I got the chance to experience the privilege of having annual pass for 2 years already 🙂
