Hey all! It’s been two weeks since I’ve last blogged, and so much has happened. Let’s start with the not-so-fun: exams. The beginning of March is known for being the start of the first midterm period. I had two exams this past week. The first was in Intro to Prob, which despite having “intro” in the name, is a 400 level probability course. The exam was pretty tough! Luckily, the teacher has lots of extra credit opportunities, including a joke contest that I plan on dominating, so I think it will all work out. My other exam was Discrete Math, which is an 100 level math course. The course itself isn’t difficult to understand, but it gets tricky sometimes. We haven’t gotten it back yet, but cross your fingers for me!
Also in these two weeks, my Design Team traveled to Florida to a meeting with our sponsors. For the first part of the meeting, we were supposed to present to future sponsors to give them a taste of what design team was like. We were so excited, and one of my freshmen worked really hard to memorize a presentation. However, in a series of unfortunate events, our flight was delayed, and we missed that meeting its entirety. It was disappointing, but we were able to give it to our advisors, who loved it, so it was still a great day. They always give us such great feedback, and it is nice to have real doctors who could see the impact of your device have faith in you.
My team also got to bond on the trip, and take terrible pictures of each other. Now, some of you may say that this is mean. However, it seems to be the way my team bonds, and who am I to stop that trend. After 18 hours together, no picture really turns out good any more, so we also didn’t really have a choice.
These are my last two weeks in a nutshell, and it should be obvious that they were very, VERY busy. While it can get overwhelming at times, and I may be a little sleep deprived right now, it is so incredibly worth it, and I just feel so lucky to go here.
