My senior project is now coming to a close. I always say that every experience teaches you something and you leave each experience having learned something new. In terms of learning it doesn’t only have to be learning content or material but learning about yourself or learning how something works.
Over the summer when I had to sit down with myself and figure out what I want to study in college I went through a list of the general areas of study. I thought about classes that I really enjoyed and can see myself continuing to pursue it. One of my answers was chemistry. Last year I took an advance chemistry course and the last bit of the class was spent doing an independent project. I loved it. I made ferrofluid. I felt I could stay in that lab for hours without complaint. I also felt that I could sit there and figure out how to make my product a lot better.
For my senior project I really want to do something that’s chemistry related. I feel any area would be fascinating to be in. Although I do have an idea of what I want to do, I have no idea where to look and who to contact besides my faculty. I honestly don’t care too much about what field or area.
A perfect day would go along the lines of:
waking up at 1 waking up early-ish, going to a lab and doing lab work. Sounds pretty boring but I think the most exciting part is doing the actually labs and watching cool stuff happen.
