Hi, I'm new to SDN. I'm going into 3rd year this September and I just started research this summer for the first time. I feel like I'm just too slow, dumb, and incapable compared to other members in my lab. I'm not worth being a research assistant. I feel sorry to other members and my PI for deciding to work in the lab in the first place, because I really don't know what's going on almost all the time and I don't have interest in my project or other research going on in the lab. But it's too late to quit now. I have no problem sucking it up for the rest of the summer, but I'm afraid of getting embarrassed and giving others hard time due to my poor performance in the lab. Before starting research for the first time this summer, I thought I would want to end up publishing papers in my undergrad career, but now that I actually am into research, I realize I won't have what it takes to be like such rare undergrads who get to publish during undergrads. I'm not even understanding my project very well or making any progress; I'm just getting nowhere. It might look ridiculous at this point to even think about wanting to publish a paper. I'm really depressed.. I just feel I'm not fit for or have the right brain for research.
