So much to do, not enough time

Fixing formatting on my thesis, submitting sequences to a database, looking for work, fixing my car, taking pictures and editing all these projects I still have, plus all the stuff I have to do that I can't remember at this time...

Start of summer

Couldn't think of a better way to spend one of the hottest days this summer so far than with some of my friends while we stuffed our faces with tacos...

Time for a vacation

I really need a vacation that is actually a vacation. It wasn't until I started my Master's that I was able to get a look at what the rest of the world (country) was like. That was the reason for the first airplane ride in my life. Then friends started moving out of Chicago or getting married and having destination weddings. But since then I haven't really invested the time or money into a trip. The only other time I had traveled in my life before grad school was the summer before I started kindergarten to visit family in Mexico for one of the longest road trips I've ever been on. I'm going to make sure that after finishing this Master's I make room for a little trip to just relax and explore more of the world because I think I caught the travel bug and I want to see more.

Doing science

When I started Grad School, everything I was doing was new. I had already received an undergraduate degree but I didn't have this kind of exposure to actually doing science. Working with bacteria, learning molecular techniques and going out into the field. I now say that this was some of the hardest work I have every done but always completely enjoyed it. The days went by so fast and the only thing I did not fully enjoy were those couple of times when the work day went from 8 hours to 12 hr or even close to 24 hr just to get an experiment completed. No wait...

Friend's new puppy

One of my good friends just got her husband a new puppy. He's a bully named Rocky and he's the grandson of her current dog. Besides the tons of training that my friend is now trying to get used to again, she wanted to remember this little fur ball when he's not going to be so little as he quickly starts growing in the next couple months.....

Moving on, but first let me finish what I started

Moving on, but first let me finish what I started

I feel like most people decide to start blogs at the beginning of something or maybe even at the end. But here I am, starting one in the middle of something, so we’ll see where this goes.....
