This week has been the first real week for me in terms of doing my work and getting settled in. I have expectations I must meet at NASA every day and I have created a daily schedule/routine that works for me; finding time to meal prep, commute, study, go to the gym, etc.
The last week of the internship was extremely hectic. Scrambling to get my project completed, scrambling to get my poster printed, and scrambling to finish and perfect my oral presentation. All of that stress paid off, because I did indeed finish all those tasks before I had to leave.
In my experience, Week 9 is always, by far, the most stressful week. Abstracts, posters, and presentations need to be completed, while wrapping up the entire project. That being said, I had a pretty fantastic week.
