So today were all the final presentations given by the interns and I must say that I'm pretty impressed!! All of the other groups did some pretty complicated stuff! All this talk of gadolinium and DIRSIG really made me stop and think. It also made me realize that Helen and I have had it pretty easy working for the color and ophthalmology labs here at RIT. I mean all we did w2as take pictures and analyze them while other people were out building bridges and actual stars! This internship was a lot of fun and now that I realize just how much intensive work that we could have been put through, I really cherish all of the fun, easy going tasks that we were given to do. I really don't want to have to go out and get an actual job with actual manual labor...
Oh the number of times that phrase left Joe Pow's mouth upon seeing our presentation for the first time... I can't believe that he was so cacophonous when choosing such harsh words to describe our pride and joy!! Slide after slide his reaction was that people just don't care about fancy screen shots of all of the hard work Helen and I did this summer. He even put up a challenge that we should present first tomorrow to see if we can actually explain all of content of our slides! but it's okay, I like our presentation and I'm pretty sure no one else will even understand any of our presentation so if people don't care then why change it? I'm pretty sure the only person who really cares about what I do up there, since both Joel and Christye won't be there, is my mother who knows absolutely nothing about science so I'd say that we're pretty good...

Things here at CIS are becoming slower and slower as our time here slowly runs out. Again, today Helen and I worked amazingly hard on our final presentation that we will present on friday and I just hope to God that everything work out okay and that Joe Pow will like it (but I wont keep my fingers crossed on that...) Only three more days left!!!

It's hard to believe that I've been here for 30 days this summer; It feels like this internship just started a couple of weeks ago!! Anyway, things at work are starting to wind down since this is the final week :( Helen and I worked on our presentation while correcting all of the delta E's that were affected by our miscalculation of our blue sample that we did earlier. I hope that this week will last longer but I highly doubt that the way things have been going...

Today Helen and I went to go fix the problem of incorrectly measuring the spectral reflectances of our blue sample (whose name is sapphire sparkle) so we could correctly measure how much different the cameras read the colors. By the end of the day Helen and I had finished up most of our presentation so now it is just time to practice!
