Probably the last post before the presentation

The final paper has been finished. All that's left to do is prepare and revise the presentation and put together an abstract. This has been a rewarding experience , despite setbacks and issues in contacting people. Again, the kuhli breeding experiment and the Instagram page will continue past May 1.

More of the final paper was typed today. I have yet to add the section on learning in fish. Computer issues and a relative lack of work done this weekend kept this paper from being completed.

  Today I wrote more of the final paper. I have to finish this weekend. Yesterday a potential judge e-mailed me asking to judge earlier than the 30th. This compresses the timeline somewhat, giving less time to practice and polish the project. Tonight I will try to contact someone who works at the Aquarium Boutique to be my final potential judge.

Today I typed more of the final paper. I intend to do much more of it, possibly even finish, this weekend. With that done, all I have to do is get one more judge to agree on the date and send my advisor a mentor form.

The final date and time for the presentation has been set: April 30th at 11:45 A.M. The final paper, which still is being worked on, is being typed up. Given my current progress, I'll finish everything before the due date comfortably.

 Today I finally replied to Dr. David Portnoy. I sent him two possible dates (April 23rd and the 30th) and the required information to become a judge. I also wrote more of the final paper. At this pace, I will probably finish this week. After the presentation, I don't intend to stop the Instagram page and the "aborted" breeding attempt.

Today I e-mailed two more potential judges and found more facts to post on the Instagram page.
