I want to get through today’s scheduling nightmare and get onto my Christmas baking this weekend!
Got my final experiments approved by my supervisors so off I go. To try a protocol I’ve never done before. What could go wrong?
My new mantra for my younger students is to be selfish in their career/professional choices. There is no collateral damage when you’re twenty, as you get older you have to make compromises so I want them to make the most of their opportunities now.
The whole day was lab work and imaging – some good results and some meh results. We will see what my supervisors have to say…
Over-stressed myself this morning by all of my lab work so I went home early with a migraine. Because who doesn’t like being on the brink of a breakdown two weeks before Christmas.
Lab work, Christmas shopping, food shopping, and food prep. I lead such a thrilling life!
2.5 hour brunch (amazing) followed by lab work (not amazing. Especially for a Saturday!)
Sat down and chatted to a stranger for 1.5 hours as a part of ‘Feast of Strangers’ – was actually really great! It made me realise how much I have grown since being at uni and how much more confident I am in being honest about myself which is great.
Dreading presenting my latest data to my supervisors, it’s not positive and I swear to god it’s not my fault!
Really could not be bothered working on my methods for my thesis – but, I was obedient to past Francesca, sat down with a coffee and ended up really enjoying it! And also wrote 1,000 words, who knew.
