Now that I'm all learned and everything, you'd think that I'd have plenty of time to blog, but it turns out I'm not as motivated to check in on my blog when I don't have other, less desirable things to do. Hopefully this will change, but I'm not holding my breath. I've been look for jobs and there aren't as many as I thought there would be and I wasn't hopeful when I graduated. I've finally decided on a course of action so when people ask me what I'm going to do with my life now that I've graduated I can do more than have a funny look on my face as I tell them I have no clue what I want to do. I'm going to work for a few years and then apply to graduate schools in a health field (most likely public health or nutrition but I still really haven't let the PT dream die yet). But my plan requires me to actually be gainfully employed, so that is my mission as soon as I finish my project in the lab
Yes! I know what you're thinking! But Teri, you're not going to school anymore. Why are you still working (for free I might add) in that lab? That's a good question. I think I'm a glutton for punishment. Part of me really enjoys the seeing-the-results part of lab work, but everything that leads up to it (pipetting, calculating, labeling etc) is incredibly dull and tedious to me. But, apparently I'm an anomaly in the lab world. My sort-of-supervisor was introducing me to a few other coworkers and was explaining to them that she was pleasantly surprised that there are still people who have a strong work ethic (which is a term I would never apply to myself. I have great ambition accompanied by a dismal lack of follow-through) because even though I have nothing really forcing me to be in the lab, I returned to finish the project I was working on. They were mostly surprised that I wasn't getting paid and still came back. Any way, I (hopefully) finished my last assay on Friday and all I will have to do is come in and analyze the data. And then I will be done. Woo!
In other exciting news, my niece Eleanor is the most beautiful baby ever. I'm sure your nieces/nephews/kids have great personalities, but my niece Ella is the most beautiful ever. Period.
