July 6, 2010
Today was the first day of my internship it was more fun than I anticipated. We started off by being split into three different groups and told we were supposed to go on a scavenger hunt. Initially I was thinking of how this would be another BORING team building exercise in which nothing was accomplished but wasting time. However I was quickly proven wrong when we were set free on campus with a packet of very obscure images and told to find them, by any means necessary. After the first five minutes of fumbling I approached the first of many people to help us out on our journey through our scavenger hunt. I was pleasantly surprised to find almost everyone glad and ready to help a group of seemingly lost Interns who had no idea where they were. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to help us from the students all the way up to the faculty. After we all got back and breathed a collective sigh of relief for once again being immersed in air conditioning we had lunch. Next we were put on the task of making our videos into a full length movie. After many technical difficulties we came out empty handed and much more wary of Mac's or more specifically IMovie. After receiving free t-shirts we were shuffled off to our respective professors to get acquainted. Again to my surprise we started right off and even did an experiment after meeting everyone in the lab. Then our director started showing us the ropes on how to catalog and organize the movie to maximum quality and future usage. All and all a very eventful day.
