Where did everybody go?

You can tell it’s the tenth week of the quarter, because nobody is posting on the blog… except me, because I’m a senior and have finished nearly everything I need to do in order to get that diploma.  Everyone else has finals coming up and projects due, and there’s always barely enough time to finish it all.

I have been staying busy as of late wrapping up my senior project.  Senior project is a “capstone” requirement for engineering majors, and each major does it a little differently.  Most of the projects are team-based, where a group of students are responsible for designing something that’s relevant to their major (a car, a big radio-controlled aircraft, a biomedical device, etc.).  As a materials engineer (in a field that is more research-based than most of the other engineering disciplines), I was responsible for an independent research project, working in a lab for one of my professors.  It was challenging in many ways– not only in the academic/scientific sense, but also in trying to find time to work on it!  Needless to say, since I finished it last week, I have been a much more relaxed person.

Relaxed, but also antsy.  After three quarters in a row of school, I am so ready to move on to the next phase!  Ten more days…!
