Oh what a week! My experiments are not behaving and by that I mean they aren’t working. I had a failed microscopy experiment and a failed protein purification. But if failure isn’t science, I do not know what is. At least I’m not a failure (I say to try and convince myself) and I did get that fellowship. Not to mention me and that person made it official. ❤

What are you up to this weekend?

I need to spend some time in lab because this girl really wants to graduate. But I will be having a game night and dinner at my house tomorrow so that my boyfriend (I can’t believe I have a boyfriend, feels not real…) can meet some close and vaccinated friends. Dating is so weird in the pandemic. Anyway, I am really looking forward to them all meeting and of course, the games.

Anyway, here are some links that I think are really worth checking out.

Nooooo! I guess I’m adding getting boba to my weekend to do before it runs out. Also apparently the boyfriend has never had boba so that needs to change.
