      It’s mostly really fun. A lot of the time even when we’re doing stuff that might be a little boring, like weighing things, we can still chat and listen to music. Most days are just really great!!

      A lot of it is boring. But I do not mind being bored so it suits me well.

      It is both! Some days are really exciting or interesting because you are in the lab or you are meeting new people and learning new things but then other days it is boring because you have to sit at your desk all day reading and writing and doing paperwork!
