The last month I have had 2 paper deadlines, so that translates to long late nights at the lab. Luckily, I am not the only one there so late working on random projects. The seniors were there toiling on their senior designs. (Yes I co-teach that class and probably the cause of them being there so late.) The PhD and master students were working on papers or class projects, etc , etc.
I admit, I love this time of year. Tension fills the air, no one is sleeping, random conversations take place while shooting candles and caustics for 20 straight hours. There are many paper deadlines throughout the year, however this time of year is more fun when there are people you can share the experience with and bond over random things.
Kendra is hard at work evaluating video game interfaces. I think the awesome gloves make this photo.
Mark brought a tent in to save time walking home, and Nancy is giving him the thumbs up. Yet I don't think anyone actually used the tent, rather just slept on the lab couch.
I have no idea what Becky is doing, but she looks entirely too happy burning peeps. Nancy and "Other" Nancy are super excited at this notion as well. Luckily for all of us they did not set off our smoke alarm.
Aline has been working on her 563 project too late, and I think was just hiding behind our printer again. She's a first year, we cannot give her a real desk area now can we.
Liming was attempting to explain to me how smoothing was the solution to his paper's problems.
Nancy (I actually shot this with her D40 with my 70-200 VR on it randomly). It may not look it, however this is Nancy at 2-3am(ish). Personally, I look like a wreck after working all night.
