Nucleus Contest

We want to hear how you spent your summer.  Did you do an REU or other internship?  Did you take summer classes, work at the mall?  We would like to know, but we want to add a creative element to it, so we would like your description to be in the form of an acrostic.  If you want to find out about acrostics, you can look here.  An example of something that might be submitted is

Refreshing break from a pipeline job, an
Exploration of highly excited atoms included
Scanning pungent physics texts,
Extravagant with curvy greek letters.
Alluring, they beckon like sirens.
Resistance is futile! I'm
Captivated by their elegance,
Hopeful to invent a new configuration.

Post your responses in the contest forum.  The winner (as chosen by the Nucleus staff), will receive a prize from the SPS store.
