i’m not dead, just overwhelmed.
i’m writing a poster abstract, and it’s killing my long-winded soul, man. a poster is a brief description of research! so i’m writing a brief description of a brief description. bullshit
i have a lab schedule for the fall. all of the research. all of the labs! my first three labs for this biochem lab are: analysis of optical absorbance data, absorbance of pNPP, and pH dependence of pNPP absorbance. i have four intense chemistry labs, a ton of research, lectures… and calculus.
i’m preemptively terrified.
aqueous extraction was a shit show, man
ugh, back in the lab at 8:30? totally cool. had to wait four hours for my fu catalyst to activate. i’m tired and cold and wearing this shirt bums me right the fuck out. i’m too sentimental. also, mostly an idiot.
i’m the only one here and i can’t turn on the argon. where are all the super buff chemists? ha. ha. just kidding, forever alone
i’m at work! hooray. this was before i actually started working, so calm yourselves. i promise i’m now in a wildly unflattering labcoat and all my hair is up! as always, rainy days = khaki chinos and purcells.
anyway, microbiology is insane, but i will sort of miss this lab a lot. it’s my last week here! i’ll miss you, Halobacterium salinarium! *tears*
