Greetings from Wallops Island, VA!
Sorry its been quiet around these parts for the past few days - I'm on Spring "Break" (har-har) here on the Virginia coast, first for a weekend of volunteer work at the MSC, then for a meeting with some folks with NASA earlier today... and then to start data collection for my Master's thesis tomorrow! All-in-all a very successful weekend! :-D
I need to go to sleep here in a few minutes (its 1:00 a.m. on the dot right now!), but I wanted to stop by and say hello - I've missed my blog and you guys!! But I'm definitely having a blast, getting my nerd on and hanging out with fellow academic-types. ;-) Our collaborative group consists of me and my advisor, plus a prof from another state university and 3 of her undergrads. Adrienne (the prof from our partner university) is wonderful - she's close to my age and super-bubbly and fun, and her undergrads are great - fun, but still very serious about school - my kind of peeps! So far, the 6 of us have had a great time making action plans and talking about ridiculous happenings at our respective schools. I'm sooo excited to be working on this project for at least the next year!
OK, now I have to get some sleep - tomorrow is going to be insane - we're trying to get out to the private NASA shorefront by 8 a.m. to start our day of data collection! Nutso!
We're heading back to PA sometime tomorrow evening, so I should be back in my normal posting routine in a couple of days. See you soon!!
