I leave for Madison, WI tomorrow afternoon for a 10 week research position. Really nervous and excited. I'm also pretty pumped about meeting my roommate. She is from a university in Puerto RIco and is coming to Madison for a chemical engineering position. Only issue (though slight) is that she doesn't speak English very well and I don't know any Spanish. She seems nice though and I can't wait to get to know her.  I am pretty nervous about working in the lab though. I know I'm prepared as best as I can be, but not knowing what I'll be working on or having any background on the project is a little intense.

Ok, back to packing.

Been a while again. Man, I'm not great at keeping up with this. Ok, or I have poor time management skills.
But junior year is over and I have time to get online again. There was a period where most contact was lost due to studying. Turns out that taking Quantum Mechanics, Calc-based physics II, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry, Advanced Physical and Analytical Lab, and Creative Writing all in one semester is a terrible idea. Though, the studying paid off and the grades were decent. Overall happiness Not sure if grad school is the right choice. Suppose I should figure my life out soon though. Since I'm a senior in college now. Yikes. When did that happen?

 My uncle lost his battle with cancer yesterday afternoon. Still not sure how to process this. And I can't decide which is worse: saying goodbye or not. I have both experiences now. I also lost my father, and being away at school, I didn't get to say goodbye to him. I'm thankful that I had been home 2 weeks prior and that I spoke to him a couple days prior, but it's still difficult. And now my uncle is gone, who had been battling pancreatic cancer for a few months. 
All I can say right now is this: they were both great men and may they rest in peace.

21 years old. This is weird.
Can I be a kid again? Remember? We didn't have responsibilities to worry about or decisions to make or tragedy to understand. 
I'm going to spend a day watching Disney movies to reminisce. 
Or maybe I'll just gaze at RDJ for a while instead...

The past few days have been glorious. Christmas was pretty great; it was nice seeing family and such. Pretty presents and good food=bliss.
Saw Sherlock Holmes yesterday as well. Twice. Which was unintentional, but not unwelcome since the film was spectacular.  I was a little unsure of how I would feel about it since, so far, my favorite Holmes/Watson pair was Rathbone/Bruce from the mid-forties. Guy RItchie focused more on the novels though, so it worked out well.

Mandi also gave me my Christmas present which included Chaplin, Heart and Souls, and the Robert Downey, Jr. collection that contains Back to School, Charlie Bartlett, Home for the Holidays, and Richard III. All in all, 7 RDJ movies for Christmas...not bad at all. Oh, it's becoming a problem.

My 21st birthday is also coming up. That will be interesting since I don't really enjoy drinking all that much. I told a friend that I just wanted to wear my comfy boy sweater, jeans, and sip scotch, but apparently this is unacceptable for a 21 year old female. Supposedly I should wear a "going out" outfit and a tiara (compliments of my cousin). Yeah, not happening. We'll see, it might be fun.
