January is gonna be a tough month. Most my weekdays will be spent in the lab following through my lysozyme protocol. I developed it for the lab to make our algae cultures bacteria-free, without killing the algae we want to study. Each time I run it takes about 8 hours. This only applies if absolutely nothing goes wrong, and something always goes wrong. Dammit, Murphy.
Even though I have to finish my thesis, I still applied to a few courses this semester. I want something to keep my mind stimulated, so I applied for two statistics classes and one history class. Statistics used to scare me but thanks to my thesis, I have developed a liking to it. I’m really glad I stepped out of that comfort zone and dove right in. I’m pretty sure I’ve grown quiet a lot because of it. The history class is just something I picked because history is interesting, but also scary. Scary because we, as humans, can’t seem to learn from it. The class is about the Holocaust, and I chose it because I read so much about the genocide in Cambodia (ask me anything about Pol Pot) and found it utterly interesting. But it’s also partially inspired by a book written by a good friend. I have no idea when classes start but it’d be great to receive an e-mail about it sometime soon.
Busy time? Yes, but I like it that way.
