Today was a stressfull day. I and the other undergraduates all were working furiously to finish our posters by this evening.
As per usual I had trouble with ArcMap, nothing game-changing just the standard crash-to-desktop-dont-you-wish-you-had-saved-your-edits frustration.
Around 3pm I had finished my data and figured out how to symbolize it, all that was left was making a poster that can (hopefully) walk an interested party through my process, and explain why it is important.
In 2 hours or less.
So, it should come as no surprise, I had a bit of a stressful afternoon as well.
I was the last one to finish my poster, I handed it off to Paul (one of the grad students) around 7:30pm, only a few hours late. It wasnt as bad as it sounds, since there was only one printer and the queue to print was just long enough that the second-to-last poster was in the works right when I finished.
After that was done, I and a group of other undergraduates went to the home of one of the members of Team Hydro™ to have some home-made food (a godsend) and enjoy a nice relaxing soak in a Jacuzzi (also a godsend).
Tomorrow is presentations and thats it. It is hard to believe that my time in this program is coming to an end.
I think it has been a valuable experience.
