So my internship is getting close to the end. I still feel like there's so much to do, but right now it's still bringing things together. I've had such a great time and I'm sad to see it end, but I also don't have too much time to be sad because I still have so much more to get done before I go (and will inevitably still have a lot to do once I go). The highlight of last week was getting a code that I've been working on working. It was plagued with bugs, but I got them all figured out (with the help of my advisors) and got some good results. Of course, that code was the basis for another code, which I got running smoothly much faster than the first one. The only problem with the second one is that it takes about 2 day to run. It's a code that takes all of the data I have already analyzed for a single layer of anisotropy, and analyzes it for multiple layers. It's big and ugly, but I'm hoping for some interesting results when it finishes running again, which will probably be sometime tomorrow.
I've learned so much during this internship though. I've really found a love for this kind of research. It's like a big puzzle, and it's fun and rewarding every time you get a piece to fit. I'm thinking about pursuing the topic I'm working on even after AGU. I learned so much about data manipulation and analysis, I can't even begin to explain it. My ability with MATLAB, GMT, python, and Linux have all increased amazingly. I know I've learned a ton more but that's already a lot, and my main goal was to figure out what I'm interested in, and it's great to figure out that I'm interested in what I'm doing.
Going back so soon
still so much work to get done
need some new music
