Yesterday, we went back to the sheriff’s office to get the other half of our participants. Another full day of work (not as late as Monday), but I don’t mind it so much. By the end of the day, I was flagging, though- the last two interviews were a struggle. For our trouble, we got a Happy Meal (TM), and I took an Edna Mode figurine for my room. Conducting our experiments meant that we didn’t get to participate in the light painting, but that’s alright. The guest for our luncheon lecture was interesting. Two separate people this summer have told me to check out his work before our lecture, but I never did. I actually got coffee with him today and he gave me some advice on being an artist and developing a practice. He told me that I should apply to ISU for grad school, but I don’t know if I’d be satisfied with Ames for two full years.
Today, I really should have the poster done. My fellow teammates are logging in the data from our experiment and hopefully analyzing it by the end of tomorrow. The poster is definitely looking better than it did yesterday, but it needs a lot of work. I’m hoping that I can write/edit the methodology part of the paper, and if the data is analyzed, then start drafting the results/conclusion.
I’m ready to get a good amount of sleep tonight.
