Finals Week, Summer Internships, Senior Year, IQP, MQP and more.

Okay, so if you couldn't tell by the title of this post, I have a lot going on in my life right now.

First of's finals week. Finals are always super stressful at WPI. Right now I'm worried about one of the classes I'm in - biomechanics. It makes me feel slightly better that I know that everyone in the lecture hall seems to be in the same boat as me; however, I need this for my concentration (and some of the seniors in the class need it to graduate), and right now we're all not doing so hot and this class is not offered again until C term 2012. Great.

On top of the stresses of that class, my IQP Proposal and Final Presentation are due TONIGHT! It's crazy! I know I'm going to be sooooo relieved when I'm done with PQP/ID2050 in 7 hours and don't have to worry about it for the rest of the week, but right now it's a little stressful.

So, I've ovbiously known for about a year that I was going to be going to Austalia this D term for my IQP. :) But, although I knew it was true, it didn't really feel "real" until this week. I'm so excited because it's finally starting to hit me that my flight leaves this weekend (!!!). As of Saturday I will no longer be in the United States. :) We're heading to Australia so early because there are a group of WPI students who did their IQP in Australia during C term. They're staying late and we're going early so that our trips will overlap for a few days. I'm really happy because we'll be able to spend the first few days hanging out with them, getting acquainted with the area, and going on a few trips before we have to actually start working on our projects. :)

So, the fact that I'm leaving for IQP on Saturday means two things.

1. I won't be blogging as often and might not post for a while. If I can, I will try to keep you updated on how my job search is going, but I'm not sure how often I'll have inernet or free time to blog.

2. I feel like I have to figure out everything now. I need an internship, an MQP, and to finalize my senior year schedule. Yikes.

This is a fairly short post because I have a lot to work on. Hope the rest of you aren't as busy as I :) am (but unfortunately you probably are)! Good luck on finals and your job/internship searches!!
