Well, I think it has been a sufficiently long enough time for me to have another entry.
So, what have I been up to? To be honest, I've been busy as usual. Trying to actually have a life and do decent in school. I've come to terms with the fact that I try to do the least amount possible for the best score possible. It's amazing really, when I don't really care about a test and party before it I seem to do just as well as if I had spent weeks studying.
Took some pictures over Spring Break in Decatur and Downtown Huntsville. My camera isn't terribly impressive, but it'll get the job done. One of these days I will invest in a 50 mm or something that takes higher quality pictures. I also need to take out the powerlines in a couple of my better pictures... They are such a pain to deal with... I've been thinking about selling some or even altering them and then painting them on canvas and then selling the paintings. Cool huh? Well, it sounded like fun to me anyway.
I have a nice little job working in the vivarium on campus. The research is in cooperation with Nektar, so it'll be good to have some contacts there. Speaking of contacts, I have been to two undergraduate research conferences lately: one at the University of Memphis and one at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. I gave an oral presentation at the one in Memphis and a poster presentation at UAB. Through those I've made quite a number of good contacts. I also attended the Builing Your Career in Biotech Workshop that was useful. It basically reinforced my ideas on how things in applying for a biotech job are like, but it was still informative.
Saw An Horse at The End in Nashville with Kim and Cassie. AMAZING show. They were really good live. Didn't care for Hey Penny or the Appleseed Cast much. Shoot the Mountain, however, were pretty cool though. I got Kate and Damon to sign my Microbiology notebook and backpack since I had brought that with me to study for my Cal B exam I had the next morning. Lolz all-nighter. Still, I wouldn't have traded it for anything.
