Every Monday, and Friday I would meet with my Professor at 1:00pm to review my progress up to that point. After this meeting I would usually walk back to another Professors office to continue working. On Wednesday I would usually just go to the office to give him an update on how my work was progressing. On the other days of the week I was free to work on my own towards that weeks goal.
Through this job I got familiar with the program Weka and working on deadlines. Also I got to be part of a research project which was very enjoyable. It also greatly increased my proficiency with python.
