Summer rapidly came and went. I have spent my summer days working in an organometallic chemistry lab up in University of Washington- Seattle, working with Dr. Karen Goldberg. I've been working on anti-markovnikov hydroamination with Rhodium catalysts.
When I come back to San Diego for my last YEAR at SDSU, I will hopefully be publishing two papers, applying to too many PhD programs for chemistry and having classes. My class schedule is:
Major Chemistry Courses:
Chem 457: Instrumental Chemistry Analytical Lab (2)
Chem 520A: Inorganic Chemistry (3)
Chem 550: Instrumental Chemistry Analytical Lecture (2)
General Education Courses:
TMF 160: Cinema as Art and Communication (3)
GERM 100A: Introduction to German (5)
RWS 508: Scientific Writing (3)
Unit total: 18 units
I also will be attending 4 conferences early in the semester. Three of them will be in Seattle and the last one will be in Bethesda, Maryland presenting to the NIH on my boron chemistry research.
My life has been slowly amounting to this. All this education hasn't been all for nothing, for soon I will be a graduate student pursuing the great and ever expansive field of chemistry. I would say my life is going in a good direction.
I have been drawing here and there. Not too much as usual, but I am planning to post a little doodle that I did today.
I hope all is well with your lives.
