Last day at Internship…

06 Aug 2005 on Musing

YESTERDAY was FRIDAY!!!…it was my final presentation to the IBN Scientists and the Director…so how did it go??? As i said before, we tested the presentation from our laptop and we did not shut it down and brought it straight to the conference room. All set! 4pm…The directors enter…and jazz and me presented LAST…our Multiple Particle Tracking Project.

This was how it ended…

Sigh…so that was the end of our YRP internship at IBN. I’ll kind of miss it! This was the first time that i worked for 3 months…my longest job with long hours and yes with my highest pay cheque so far :)

From this 12 weeks of internship I was… - fascinated by the latest cutting edge machines…and of course the techno-architecture of biopolis. I had the chance to play with microscope and spectroscope. - often frustrated to learn that answers cannot come to me as easily as i would want them to come…“no no no…no no no”…uuuuurrrrrggghhhhh!!! ….but then again it reminded me that Man has only discovered so little…. like what Newton said,

I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

darn…school’s gonna start in TWO days!…and I’m gonna miss IBN and the hols…Right now my LAPTOP KEYBOARD IS NOT FUNCTIONING!!!!…so my first day will be spent with Comp Centre. URGH!!!! But then again, it is during these frustrating times that you should look at your life again…yeah I’m really blessed that I have a laptop and those Tollygunge children does not. I’m gonna meet Akriti tomorrow and so memories are flooding back. So, I guess this laptop is not a problem…I’m gonna get it fixed soon.
