By the middle of June, I was on a flight to the Florida Keys to help with research in our lab. The plane I was on had to do at least 23 infinity loops in the sky do to a storm. It was excruciating. However, before I knew it, I was a week in to the best month of my life, over my sea sickness, and diving everyday.
While in the Keys, I discovered that bar and yellow jacks are my favorite fish. I literally squealed every time I saw one so it is definitely a proven fact. I also got the chance to help untangle a sea turtle from some rope and had a lobster sit in my lap while I did one of my first AGGRA surveys.
I am super thankful for the experiences and friends I gained this summer. I learned so much about so many different things. It's made me an even cooler human being (just kidding I'll never be cool). I hope I'll be doing underwater handstands again real soon.
