**06/27**

- Continued generating light curves for individual days of flare
- Started compiling VEGAS analysis into a document

- Finished adding 2020 light curves to document
- Running VEGAS analysis for 2020-2021 so I can generate light curves for this tomorrow

- Started reading Isabella's guide for the source and some linked sources
- REU lecture (left for campus at 2pm)

- Worked on preliminary document
- Need to make sure that final results are excluding the large Zenith runs

- Looked briefly at code from Qi for fitting light curves and spectra

**07/05**

- Group meeting at 10am (went over presentation)
- REU Lunch talk at 12:30pm
- Grad school discussion with Prof. Karagiorgi at 2pm

- Looking more at code for fitting spectrum, trying to learn how to do this
- Same as above for light curve

- Put together slides for meeting
- REU Lecture + Lab tour (Leave for campus at 2pm)

- Meeting at 12pm
- Read over AGN theory slides (Frank Rieger)
- Ran analysis with log parabola spectral fit

**07/11**

- BNL Trip

- Made more progress with fitting light curve but running into issue with chi sq. value, so need to fix this
- REU Biophysics lecture + lab tour (Left for campus at 1pm)

- Starting AGN theory slides for Thursday (will also use part of this for Friday blazar group meeting)
- Next steps before final article/presentation (based on today's meeting):
- Continue working on fit for 2/25 light curve
- First constant
- Then piecewise exponential

- Figure out how to calculate size of source based on variability
- Eventually plot Fermi data side by side
- Plot light curve for 2020-2021 time period

- Continue working on fit for 2/25 light curve

- Finished fit for 2/25 light curve
- Group meeting at 1pm
- Finished presentation for blazar group meeting

- Prepped for meeting at 12pm
- Plotted 2020-2022 light curve -- looks off so will try different bin size, maybe plot in smaller time ranges first

**07/18**

- Reading articles for tomorrow's meeting

- Paper meeting at 1pm
- REU Lecture at 3pm

- Astrochemistry lab tour at 4pm

- Blazar group meeting at 2pm
- REU RARAF lecture + lab tour at 3pm
