I think that as a final semester senior, it’s easy to get reflective and sentimental about the past years at Wabash. But there is still one more semester to go! I thought it would be a huge relief to be in the homestretch. There is a ton of work to be done, though.
It has only been one week into classes, and the semester is already a little crazy, in terms of class time and amount of work. I have a couple of projects that are all beginning at the same time. This semester I am finishing up my capstone film project, which I will begin filming in a few weeks. I also am running a rat study over the next three weeks, involving hormone manipulation of females during a decision-making maze paradigm. In addition to chemistry, a writing course (which is a great review), and a classics course, my work is cut out for me right now. All I can do is just take it in stride.
It’s been fun getting the two projects set up so far. For the film project, I have had a lot of luck getting into contact with various faculty; and early this week, I should be showing my script to a couple of interested actors, which is really awesome. For my rat study, I just finished setting up my manipulations for the maze. Also, Andrew Fulton and I are finishing up the actual building of the maze, which was made from scratch the old-fashioned way – wood, nail, and hammer. So, right now, you could say things are a little busy, but they are a pretty exciting way to start off my final semester! WAF!
