This semester was a busy one and I can’t believe how quickly it went! During this spring, I was able to tie up the loose ends of my research. I analyzed my data, present my findings at two conferences (SEWSA 2012, and SURF), as well as finish my research paper! It is funny to be able to put that into one short sentence because of all of the hard work that it did take. It feels great to have completed my undergraduate research, but also a bit sad because it has been such a huge part of my undergraduate career.
