Daniel H’s blog adventures

Today, I had to get up against my will because my roommate woke me up at the crack of dawn, and lavished me emotionally, showering me with comments such as “We will be late” and “Hurry up, it’s 8:20”. Because of his loving words, I had no choice but to get up and walk to Wiley Hall.

Our morning was filled with lectures and hard work, learning about the ins and outs of enzyme kinetics and their application in our project. We got to create a protein assay to see if our enzyme was active. Although it was fun, I was famished by the time I got out, and walked to IMU.

After going on an adventure to the IMU, we made our way back to the lab, where my group briefly talked with Nikhil Venmuri, who threw street group signs at me. Despite our scary and frightening encounter, it turns out that he is a nice little man.

Afterwards, Kenny thought he was slick, but got caught creepily taking pictures of other people by our friendly, residential TA, Rex.

It was a good day, for the innocent people being stalked. Unfortunately, the lab was as hard as a stuffed animal, and we had to redo it 4 times, which led SSPers to get on their knees and beg… for an extension.

However, we were still very hungry, and as a result, people raced to the dining hall to munch on the delectable items laid out by the cooks. In particular, the Kung Pao Chicken was very delicious.

At 8, we celebrated Sonia’s Birthday (Happy Birthday Sonia!) and ate a lot of cake.
