I haven't had a lot of work to do for most of this week because all the students in my lab have been working on their presentations for the symposium that is today. I am going to start working on my presentation for the end of this internship. I am still trying to figure out what exactly I should put on it but I will probably talk about the research I did on black holes.
This Monday we went on a trip to the MEES Observatory and had dinner at Sticky Lips before we went. It was such a fun dinner! And seeing Saturn and all the other stars at the observatory was really cool too. Before the trip I didn't have any work to do though, so mostly I just walked around and helped out other people.

Today I played around in PuTTY for a while and I think I sort of understand how to use it now. I opened some files and I have to figure out and get comfortable using IDL so I can plot of the data in one of the files for practice. I also read over some notes on one of the projects one of my co-workers is working on.
