My final project evolved from my interest in psychedelics. Inspired by the way narcotics culture influenced the arts during the 60s, I proposed a few ideas on the topic for the midterm review. Eventually, I narrowed my direction of research to Cannabis because its a legal and accessible substance. For the project, I interviewed a personal friend who has practical knowledge of cannabis. We discussed topics around cannabis such as its general influence, its composition, and variations of strains, harvesting, and comparison with other psychedelics.
This quarter has been an incredible period of experimentation, exploration, and scratching the itches of long-time curiosities.
Conclusions of the Class
A visit to the Hammer Museum was a great experience. I personally do not usually make trips to museums on a regular basis but I am very glad I did so this time. I was able to observe a lot of artwork by different people with different perspectives/views and that was very inspiring and interesting.

I rarely go to the Biomedical Research Library, but when I do, I go see what is new and popping Special Collections. Actually, this quarter was the first time I explored the Special Collections in this library, of which I previously had not known its existence. It looked like a normal part of the library, with book stacks. However, there were special encased displays, which presented some interesting artwork. The theme of some of the displays in the special collections seemed to revolve around birds, specifically parrots.
