Day Two- I've actually learned something in college

Today was a different kind of day for me. I woke up feeling super sick still and have had so much water to drink you wouldn't believe! I walked straight to the lab this morning and didn't get lost like yesterday.

- I think it's a requirement for me to get lost for an hour in a new place. It happened in Clemson too!-

I spent seven hours on campus today and didn't touch a single pipette or flask. I spent the day observing and taking notes. It was different than my typical lab experience. I should get to start on my project tomorrow morning which will be awesome!! I was pretty excited today though because I followed every conversation that took place. I knew what everyone in the lab was referring to and could actually ask relevant questions. It was nice to know that I've learned enough not only in research but also in the class room to actually hold my ground in a lab!

The people in the lab are incredibly nice. And everyone smiles all the time! A little different from what you might expect right??

I have an incredibly early day tomorrow (early for me that is) so I'm heading to bed!


  1. Kesel.... you are an amazing woman. I know you are going to love this summer. Just rememeber you were never LOST you were just experiencing something new.

  2. Thank you!! I got to see some more of the campus today and it's really nice here! The weather will take some getting used to but I'm fitting into things pretty nicely now!

  3. I'm so excited about your adventure!
    I know that you will remember this for the rest of your life!
    I'm so proud!
