Had a good chat to my mum today – most of the time she wants to talk when I’m super busy or super tired so I made sure I was not cranky this time!
Put together my industry CV – there’s so much left off it!
Open Day – that is all!
I love those meetings where people actually support you instead of trying to get in your way – I have found my champions in such unexpected places.
A two hour strategy meeting with our best idea in the last 15 minutes – of course.
Making plans for teaching semester 1 next year – pretty exciting if we can do what we want to do!
My 25th birthday.. presents, lab work, brownies, lunch with friends, cupcakes, gender equity event, stressful emails – a normal day really, just with more sugar!
I really love it when someone questions your results and reasoning, completely disregarding your expertise in the area..
Even though I had cake for breakfast, I still feel really flat today – probably a combination of tiredness from a crazy lab schedule, not enjoying my work environment, anxiety about post-phd job prospects and cold weather. This too shall pass.
