After a crazy finals week and a few days at home, I am ready to get going with my internship. I made it safely to Montreal. My bag, on the other hand, has not. Hopefully it finds it's way back to me before the smell of my clothes everyone off. Right now, my job is to familiarize myself with the software I will be using to analyze shear wave spliting at a few Canadian seismic stations.
Here are my goals for the internship:
1) Learn a lot!
I don't really care what I learn, as long as I'm learning. Right now that seems inevitable, which is a good thing. I won't make it far without picking up a lot.
2) Find direction
One of the main reasons I'm doing this internship is to figure out what I really enjoy and want to pursue. It looks like I will be exposed to quite a few different things and I'm excited to experience them.
3) Meet new people
4) Maybe learn some French
5) Write bad haikus
It's a hobby
So many unknowns
New city and new people
excitement and fear
