Well, its been a busy week. How is it only the 2nd week of school and I've already gotten behind on assignments?! I'm loving animal physiology so far, my teacher is kind of eclectic and likes to show us bizarre animals and he's kind of all over the place in his lecturing, so studying will be difficult for that class, but hopefully I learn a lot. Biochemistry seems to be going well, though I miss my biochem 1 teacher.
However, I wanted to update that this week I've gone to a lab meeting! I've met the other students (fellow undergrads) who are in the lab, one of them is really nice and I can see myself working well with her, the other two are alright as well. I found out we'll be having individual projects/work when it starts, but I also found out the lab isn't even set up yet! We don't even have our organisms to work on, and a lot of our equipment hasn't been set up, or even arrived yet. So I'll have about a month of wait time, but in the meantime our professor wants us to start researching papers on our organism to become familiar with it. I guess I shouldn't complain, because I should hopefully utilize this time to get other things done. I am excited to start, though!
And to top it all off, I've just completed my last day of work at the animal hospital. It doesn't really feel like an ending, since I will continue to shadow there. I do feel like things are changing though, and hopefully for the better.
