rainy, stressful days always involve khaki chinos and purcells. whatever.
i have a physics exam today! 18% of my grade! jesus. and the final is on monday! ugh. i think this week was my last physics lecture, ever. i mean, unless i take modern physics in the fall. or classical mechanics. neither of which are required. nor do i need any electives. i just really like physics a lot? and if i took both those classes and another physics class (thermodynamics!), i’d have a minor in physics. why? why the fuck not?
ALSO! in news that is interesting to none of my followers (except krista, who is the bee’s knees)… my Halobacterium subculture worked!! i found a publication called The Halohandbook: Protocols for Haloarchaeal Genetics. apparently upping the temperature and making my own media (instead of using HBA) is best. hopefully transfer to liquid media is as successful.
/long, winded post
//time to study!!
…how about you let me borrow this and you borrow my tan DB blazer?
as soon as i invest in this shirt, let’s be penpals. i mean, if i start calculating cost per wear, and given that i’d wear it way too often…it’d be irresponsible not to buy it, right?
ugh, I really want to wear this Gitman polka dot chambray shirt with pink pants! and a navy blazer.
…but let’s be honest, i want to wear everything with chambray and a navy blazer.
green pants, navy sweater, grey silk blouse. in other news, it’s cold as fuck. what’s the deal? it’s going to be cold and shitty all week! pink neon pants tomorrow. i hope the world is ready.
related news: my term paper (a lab report) is dragging. it’s already a million pages and i’m scared i’m mixing tenses or some silly shit. do i include all this useless information? i feel like i should write to a target audience of idiots, since i’m pretty much required to include the “why” for… well, every step of the project. why did i do an oxidase test? uh, i dunno, i didn’t want to go make my own fluid thioglycollate medium? ugh. really? list the reagents?
/bi-weekly bitch fest
baking ginger snaps > studying
…living on the edge tonight, obviously
green pants yesterday. also, bright neon pink. terrible lighting makes them seem less obnoxious. neon pants? are neon pants work appropriate? i think they’re go to hell pants in that people in my lab will say “go to hell, you’re blinding me.” whatever, bright pants forever. no regrets, guys.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven. I actually forgot how unbelievable this album is. They put on one of the best performances I’ve seen as well.
Might just listen to this instead of go out tonight.
Love forever and ever
you guys, i have so many lab reports to write. it’s sort of ridiculous. i’m ready for the semester to be over, but not for finals. also,
in news that no one in the world will find relevant: i’m the TA for a microbiology professor who just had a baby. so… i’m doing all her subcultures. well, re-culturing every single bacteria stock. anyway, we didn’t have the right liquid media for L. acidophilus and i made that shit from scratch! bromocresol purple is fun to play with. also, let’s hope the media for the Halobacterium worked, because i really have no idea what other liquid media to use for that shit. i have a streak plate on HBA right now, but if this liquid media doesn’t work… ugh. related news, “beef extract” is as disgusting as it sounds.
