One of my favorite questions to ask, when talking to companies, is what a day as an intern is like. What would I be doing, who would I see, where would i go, etc. I figured that people would want to know what the daily life of an MIT student (i.e. me) is like. So i decided to chronicle my weekend! This will be the first of several “a day in the life of Cyd” posts and I can imagine them being lots of fun (for me at least)
