It feels as though many months have passed since I last posted – every closing term of the school year loves to drag on forever. My third year as an undergraduate is over!
After a mad scramble with finals, moving out of a dorm room, repacking for an apartment, and driving many miles, I am now settled in Silicon Valley for the summer. Housing is provided through a joint program between a local university and research center, and I have rather gleefully been absorbing the new surroundings. The next few months will be spent getting up at 6:30 am, commuting to work, basking in chemicals, researching nanorods, attending meetings/seminars, and avoiding the status of ‘sleepy, zombified intern’…
More to come.
