Last Day!

Presentation went well. Now I am done. And a little sad. I will miss all the great times that we had. And all the awesome MVRL lab people.

By the way, I want to give thanks to: (Dr.) Jeff Pelz, Susan Farnand, Bethany Choate, Bob Callens, and MVRL Lab for making this internship possible and answering my many questions!

Day Thirty-Three

Second to last day! In the morning we had the practice presentation. Simran and I did not have to change much because all the mistakes were fixed by this point. The only problem we had was with the videos. Videos don't easily switch between macs and pcs. All that is left is to practice a little, and to figure out what I am wearing tomorrow!

Day Thirty-Two

There are only two more days left! Simran and I finished edited our presentation. Jeff was kind, and decided to critique our presentation again. Some other person also watched our video. The hints that they gave were very helpful. As of now, the presentation is in perfect shape (other than one thing on powerpoint that this computer is not letting me do!). The only thing left is to practice our speech. And to find a jump drive that works. Both mine and Simran's RIT jump drives broke. And I lost my real jump drive. It is becoming a problem right now. Anyways, the practice presentation before the interns is tomorrow morning! And the real thing is on Friday!

P.S. We had Christmas in August today. It was awesome. Watching people receive gifts is great!

Day Thirty-One

Today the entire MVRL Lab critiqued our presentation. It was very helpful. Now there is a lot of work to do. But it is okay, because our project will be a lot better. From this internship I learned two things about my lab. One: people bring in food randomly! Two: they critique very well. The entire lab spend two hours critiquing a 17 minute presentation. Our lab is definitely the best one in this internship!

Day Thirty

Simran and I almost finished the powerpoint. It is going pretty good. Now we need to practice. Today was the barbeque. Simran and Robert brought badminton rackets, so we played badminton. That was a lot of fun. A lot better than volleyball! I am so ready for a weekend...

Day Twenty-Nine

I am getting really bad at blogging after work. There is just so much going on at the end of the day that I don't remember. So now I am blogging about yesterday. Simran and I finished our speech, an started working on the powerpoint. We probably will finish everything today, and then have the entire next week to practice. We had Sisily (she was one of the interns here a long time ago, and now works in the MVRL lab) look over our speech. It was really helpful because she pointed out some of the confusing parts of our speech. Now we have to get feedback from Bob and Bethany.

Day Twenty-Eight

Simran and I got a lot of done today. We wrote out our entire speech, and planned what we have to do until next Tuesday. On that Tuesday, we will have to present in from of our entire lab. Apparently that will not be a fun and pleasant experience, and we will get a lot of criticism. But that will make us prepared for Friday.
