In the beginning of the program, the idea of having autonomy in creating my own independent project and experimenting with it seemed really exciting to me. Now, along with excitement, I feel a sense of confusion. Especially last week, I was feeling slight frustration with my project because I couldn’t even think of a single idea that was both feasible and piqued my interest. After drafting my project with Dr. Gardiner last week, I changed it AGAIN because I just wasn’t very interested in what I was going to do. Now, I’ve found an idea that’s interesting and possible for me to do in the given time frame.
As an athlete, I drink a lot of Gatorade because it supposedly replenishes your body to make you perform better and exhibit more movement and higher levels of activity. Though this may be true, I am curious about the effect that drinking different amounts of the sports drink would have on my performance. Also, I will most likely play sports as an adult, so I was wondering whether there would be different effects based on age. Thus, I will hopefully be testing the effect of the amount of Gatorade consumed on movement/activity and whether or not there’s a different effect based on age.
I’m actually excited for this project so let’s hope all goes well!
