Welp. This post is several days late. I’m actually in Italy right now on a family vacation. I had to leave Boston right after the symposium to catch a flight to Paris, and I haven’t had the time to add a post to this blog until now. Fortunately, the last day of RISE was very… Continue reading Day 41: Poster Symposium + Goodbyes
Today was quite chill — I got a haircut, picked up my printed poster from Fed Ex, and then went to the lab and chilled and read papers to help me with my presentation. At noon, Professor Ludwig took us all out for lunch because I am leaving tomorrow. I was allowed to choose the… Continue reading Day 40: Last Day in the Lab
So I said I’d make the post on time, but I was wrong. Oops! I checked my e-mail this morning to check my inbox, and Professor Ludwig had already sent another long e-mail, this time with 22 edits! I can’t believe he put so much time and effort into going over my poster so meticulously,… Continue reading Day 39: Symposium Poster Submitted

Since I’m posting so late, I don’t remember very well what even happened yesterday. I believe I spent most of the day working… Continue reading Day 37: Free Cake

I learned about a technique for drawing dotted lines (Walter Lewin is really good at it!) and practiced that for a while. Bryan walked in later in the afternoon and drew a chart… Continue reading Day 36: Bryan’s Hunger Chart
I woke up at 2:00 pm today. I read a few papers to help me write my poster introduction, but wasn’t very productive. I got dinner with a bunch of guys, and after that, we chilled until the dance. We dressed up casually and went over to the room where we had our RISE orientation.… Continue reading Day 35: “Under the Sea” Dance
