I've been busy getting ready for the end. I will miss everything. I've done my poster for the program, but my oral presentation is tomorrow. Right now, I'm not too worried, but I know I'll get nervous right before. The poster session was actually quite enjoyable after explaining my project to the initial few people. It's so fun to finally be able to explain what I did this summer to other people in more detail. It really made me realize just how much I worked on. I'm also quite proud with how my poster turned out. I also did like getting to hear about what projects other people in the program worked on.
The PI, your mentor, and the lab have such an influence on the summer experience. I've been lucky to have had a supportive mentor, but some people's experiences have not been so good. I know right now the specific area of research isn't so critical to getting a good research experience, but I'm glad I did like my project itself. For now, wish me luck on the oral, and I will give a lovely research summary with Drosophila pictures :)
