I got to spend this past week in Washington D.C. for the quantum computing workshop. It was great being able to do something in person and meet my mentor. At the workshop I got to help with setup, help attendees with activities, and meet a bunch of interesting teachers.
Almost there. It seems like the closer we get to week 10, the quicker the days go by. Maybe it’s because I feel settled into my routine? I’m not sure, but as Brad put it this week, June felt like a week, July felt like a day, and August feels like an hour.
It’s hard to believe how fast time has flown—I will be presenting my results next week! I spent this week working on my presentation and analyzing my data. I still need to add one more visualization of my results, but otherwise the slides are all done!
I wish I had more interesting updates to tell but I spent all week on one goal: writing the Physics Today Online article. Since the interviews had been conducted, I spent my time transcribing, fact-checking, writing, and, most importantly, editing.
