The First Day in Class
My first day in DNA biotechnology was basically what I expected; a long orientation and introduction.
Apparently, our class was placed in the wrong room and we had to move into another room, which was pretty awkward since it is happening at Brown University.
After we adjusted to the change, our class met Dr. Harter. My initial reaction to Dr. Harter was that of respect and pride. Apparently, Dr. Harter is the coordinator of setting up the labs for the Biology classes here at Brown. When she announced her position, I was in shock: why is a person of her stature teaching me and how did I even get a chance to have her as a teacher? I immediately thought that this was the thing that alumni students and graduate students were so amazed about: having great teachers who care about and teach you.
I don't really have much to say about today except that I'm getting used to the weather. I have 34 pages to read so see you later.
