I overslept for the first time ever today. Instead of panicking and stressing, I decided to get Zoe to day care ASAP, and then study my brains out. I guess it technically means I skipped class but I feel like I’ll get a lot more done if I stay home and study instead of trying hard to keep myself awake at the lecture.
I’m sorry for the low update lately. Last week as turbulent with many let-downs and a birthday party for the little one. She has discovered the art of opening presents and now thinks that everything enveloped in pretty paper is hers to open. We find it hilarious, and so does she, but I’m guessing she has no idea why her parents are smiling like fools when they have no presents to open, haha. Dork parents (but we love it).
I’ve also spent a lot of time in the lab working. I started working with the cold species from Antartica and it freaks me out every time I take them out of the incubator. Since they’re sensitive to high temperatures (optimum is 4°C), it makes me want to work real fast when transferring to new bottles in room temperature. I also talked to Karin (my lab supervisor) about it and she keeps stressing about that one of the other algae species that I’ll care for, are about 290 cultures. The amount freaks her out, but it makes me excited. I really must enjoy this, haha.
I made a video of the incubation rooms, but WP won’t let me upload it. I’ll take pictures the next time I work so you guys get to see it :)
Nothing much has happened since last post, so I’ll wrap this up and try not to play video games instead of studying.
//c_Cae; it came to my attention that I almost never complain about how tired I am ;O
