Done so far today:
– Submission of scholarship form and the “Why I want to be a Pharmacist when I grow up” essay. (Cheese. Pure cheese.)
– Paper that I forgot about on the seminar I attended about saving the Kemp’s Ridley Sea Turtle. Doing my part to help bring them back to the Galveston beaches. (If you see one down there, or you spot turtle tracks, call 866-Turtle5 right away.)
– Paper on the Solarization technique, aka the Sabatier Effect, for photography. One of my favorite things to do in the photography darkroom when I took the course back in high school, the effects this technique produces are really cool.
Still to do tonight:
– Powerpoint Presentation to go with the outline created for our X-Ray Crystallography presentation on Friday. Mike, the resident Powerpoint guru, has promised his assistance on this project. (I wrote the outline, all we are doing now is transferring pieces to slides.) UPDATE: Initial draft done; will need more editing tomorrow.
Still to do, but probably not tonight:
– Paper on a famous photographer. Considering Man Ray, as I just read a lot about him because he helped make the solarization technique famous. Willing to consider others (but not Ansel Adams) if you have suggestions. My teacher can only read so many papers on Ansel Adams in one semester.
– Beginning of research on the reproductive systems of vertebrates for Biology presentation due next Tuesday.
Today was also officially our last lecture day in Chemistry II. We will do labs on Wednesday, a test next Monday, and that is it before the final. No more classes as we have a Wednesday off. Wow. I think the Photography darkroom closes this week also. But in Biology II, I think we are having lectures up to the last possible second, and then a practical, a test, and the final.
I’m beginning to feel a bit drained of creativity, losing all of my knowledge power, and finals are coming up fast and furious. Somebody hold me.
