Day 49: Ever watched House of Cards?

In House of Cards, there was a scene where the main character told these interns, or something like that, to stay in this room and write out a new education bill. They were only shown for a second, but it was obvious that they were hot, sweaty, and tired. I think I understand how those interns felt. Yep, working for 100 hours will take a toll on you. It’s insane that some people do this everyday, or even more. I say this, but I’ll probably get used to it. No matter how crazy of a schedule you give people, they always learn to adapt. It’s just a big initial shock. Sorry for being so tired, but programming in Perl does that to you. Back at my school, I was working in the field of Bioinformatics, which uses Perl. It’s actually in the first paragraph of its Wikipedia page. Anyways, work was hard and long. The only thing that makes it better is the fact that we’re starting our experiment soon ( our first participant is showing up on Wednesday) and data analysis is probably going to be easy( after all, I am a mathematician. Actually, having two mathematicians should make this very easy). I still can’t believe that we have that poster to do. Anyways, we worked today. Sorry I didn’t see anybody today. I didn’t miss you either.
