This week is going to be busy, busy, busy...
Today I start a study that is going to last 28 days. It should take the next 8 hours to set up and start. Then I have to monitor and take data at specific time points over the next 4 weeks. When I'm not in the lab this week I need to be writing my qualifier. This is a 40-50 page document that is a literature review for my PhD project and acts as the first milestone for my research and degree progress. This is exciting, but this summer is going to be all writing and reading. At least I'm hoping that it will be complete by August so that I can take a little vacation before I present my literature review.
This afternoon there is a perspective student coming in that I will be hosting for the next 2 days. Should be interesting to try and host this students while trying to get everything else done for the lab. Guess I just need to get back into multi-tasking like I used to.
Then to top it all off, I will be teaching another student how to use a piece of equipment in my lab all Tuesday afternoon, have meetings Wednesday afternoon, Wed. night and Thursday afternoon that should total about 6-7 hours of fun.
Well off to be a busy gal this week. Hope everyone is enjoying their summers. Here it is in full swing with temps in the 90's and high humidity...thank goodness for air conditioning.
