I had my presentation this week, and it went, if I may, pretty damn well. I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that I kept my cool, and didn’t get nervous…it was great! For the past quarter I was in a research group with two of my program mates, and we were all studying literature in some capacity. Our conference style presentation went very well, and there was a very evident common thread through it all. At this point, everyone in the program has presented, and we are all incredibly relieved! To celebrate we went out to a local bar called The Brotherhood (we are in an upper-division program, so everyone is over 21 for the most part). Our professors even stopped in for a beer, which was hilarious and entertaining to say the least. It was a satisfying way to wrap up the quarter
For this coming Spring quarter I enrolled in a program called “Equality and the Constitution” with faculty Jose Gomez. I am timidly excited, because, firstly, I have heard that he is an incredible law professor and will make you a better student; on the other hand, this will be my first entirely-law program. That being said, I have had programs in the past that have incorporated some law, so I am not really all that worried. I guess it’s just the “first time” jitters that I am experiencing. But, it’ll be great all the same!
In any case, spring break is upon us, and I am headed to warmer waters to escape the Spring-time showers! I’ll write about it when I return!
