I feel: 😊(happy)
Today was good. This morning, Kelsey and I went back to scanning. … There might have been an error with the software we used though, so we might be going back.
We had our last ethics class today. Robert talked about social media and the effects it’s having on it’s users. We also talked about confirmation bias and affirmation bias. I’m going to miss these classes, because it’s not common for my major (in my experiences so far) to expose me to these view points. One of the most important takeaways from this program overall will be learning how to understand other people’s perspectives and backgrounds.
For lunch, Professor Qin and his wife took me to a chinese restaurant! It was the same one I had gone to last Saturday. We ordered completely different dishes, and they were so delicious! I really enjoyed getting to know both of them. Professor Qin’s wife is also a professor at ISU, and she works with food sciences. When we went to the food sciences department yesterday, we actually met Professor Qin’s graduate student, and I didn’t even know it. Small world. I feel very fortunate to have so many knowledgable people around me. I’ve learned so much.
This afternoon, I started diving into a bunch of research articles for our literature review. I also worked on my presentation for Friday some more. 😳(nervous) I think I’ve been procrastinating on filling in the slides with information, but I know I’ll complete it when crunch time comes around.
Tidbit(s) of information:
• I got boba today. 😊(happy) It’s really fun to drink, because it’s so different.
• I think I’m starting to feel sad about leaving. I know we still have three weeks left, but thinking about how fast time flew and how close we are to parting is making me sad.
