What I wish was different
With the pandemic, there are certain limitations that can prevent certain experiences. A number of areas are still restricted to certain people and numbers, therefore it is not always the easiest to share ideas or ask questions. Furthermore, the department I am currently working in is in an odd situation, with one of my three supervisors out of the office for various reasons, be it paternity leave, marriage, etc. This is a rather unique situation, but things happen that do not let you have access to all of your resources. In addition to this, due to various amounts of red tape, a number of my projects were constantly being postponed. During my second semester here, I've had to do multiple run offs with a few companies that have had a number of hiccups where I wish the associated companies would be more cooperative with the processes.
