Consistency is Key

And other platitudes that I'm not practicing! I'm hoping to get back on track after three missed posts in one week. I visited the lab again this morning to see if my misadventures in microbiology are finally at their end. In equally exciting news, I defended my thesis yesterday, and I am fairly confident that… Continue reading Consistency is Key

It takes me a minute to warm up sometimes, but I find that the experience of speaking to other humans is a good one.

It's one of those days. We had an amazing night with E's cousins, but I definitely didn't plan very well for it. I was exhausted when I woke up this morning, and I was up earlier than normal because I had to wash my hair. Cut to dashing out of the house barely on time,… Continue reading Just 10%
