Last Day

This summer flew by way too quickly! My presentation went very well and I had a wonderful time learning about the other interns' summer work at the Symposium. I went to the RIT Java's for the last time on Friday and ordered a delicious Kinky Reggae. After the Symposium I enjoyed a delish lunch at Macaroni Grill with Becca and her fam and friend. When I got home I realized that I would not longer be waking up to go to work everyday. Work took over most of my summer and it was a great experience (plus i made money!!). Thank you to everyone who made this summer possible and so much fun.

Here are some important things that I learned:

1. Everything you can learn about NMR, contrast agents and transmetallation in 7 weeks.

2. NMR Spectrometers ROCK and are constantly malfunctioning and extremely breakable.

3. Dr. Hornak always has the answers and is always ready to explain them on his handy whiteboard.

4. Arrive at the morning 8:45 meeting by 8:40 or you will be considered late.

5. Becky, Lauren and I worked in the coolest MRI lab ever this summer!

6. If you're ever in building 8 and kind of hungry, head down to the basement and you will always find soda and chips in the chem lounge.

7. If you ever forget your keys to room A205 in building 76, just knock while singing the chorus of "16 going on 17" from "The Sound of Music" and Becky or Lauren will kindly open the door for you.

8. Even if its 120 degrees outside, always remember to bring a sweatshirt if you're planning on visiting 76-A205 or the NMR.

9. REMEMBER to clock in and out before and after lunch!

10. I loveeee free lunches!
