Last weekend was amazing- Peter came to visit me again! On Friday, we stayed in because it was slightly rainy here in DC. We watched the World Cup game and then cooked dinner together (one of our favorite things to do). On Saturday, we went to the zoo!
"All physicists are awkward. There are like four different categories of awkward, but we all fit into one of them." -Brad Conrad explaining the story behind yelling "Thumbs up for Science!" before every physicist photoshoot (example below).
This week has had its ups and downs, and when I say "downs" I really mean just a minor inconvenience with my project at NASA. After trying to model niobium-coated microstrips on a silicon substrate, we were consistently finding that COMSOL was not producing the expected results time after time.
It is interesting to think how 6 weeks ago I landed here in D.C a few days before the internship began and I was able to run around and explore. The days before moving into the dorms I remember imagining what the summer would look like.
