Well, my supervisor came back and I couldn't write. I mentioned this in my last article, you can check it out here.
I also had to prepare PowerPoint presentations for my experience at the institute and my seminar topic. My seminar topic was "The biochemistry of caffeine"
Simple right? Noooo
My supervisor said we couldn't just use any article on google, we had to read journals from google scholar, PubMed, etc. It was tough because the articles that I wanted were paid articles. I had to look for ones that weren't paid.
2) Why were you scared? It was just a presentation.
No, it's not just a presentation, the presentation would determine whether my logbook would be signed plus my supervisor knows everything about everything.
Some of my fellow interns presented facts they couldn't prove and she told them that they did rubbish. The embarrassment was terrible, you would not want to be on the receiving end of her wrath.
Our presentation about what we learnt at the institute was another scary thing. People that presented before she came back just read out from their slides but as soon as she came back, she said she was tired out the stories and that she would ask us questions based on what was in our slides.
We couldn't figure out where the question would be from, it was scary.
3) How did yours go?
Well, I have to say that my prayers worked. I prayed that God shouldn't let me embarrass myself there.
It was on Wednesday.
When it got to my turn, she had to leave so she told one of my fellow interns to ask me questions about my experience at the institute based on my slide. When she left, he asked me what I wanted to say, we were sort of friends.
I picked an experiment and talked about it, they asked me questions and I was able to answer most of them.
I already started my seminar presentation when she came back. She told the audience to ask me questions, most of which I answered. She appeared tired and announced a break without questioning me or poking anything I said. My friends told me I was lucky, I think it was just God.
I was so happy when I finished, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders, I was euphoric for the rest of the day even though I was tired.
4) How are you now?
Well, I am sick. I am typing this article with my nose blocked. I took caffeine to stay awake on Tuesday night( let's just say I used myself as a case study). I barely slept for an hour then I went to work.
I think that affected me a lot because I had a sore throat on Thursday and by yesterday it worsened to catarrh. I'm taking drugs and I hope to be fine soon.
5) So, what next?
I finished my internship yesterday because my school resumes on Monday and I hope to be active before school stress catches up with me.
