7.94 on the memory written part and 9.0 on the review paper (out of 10). Sooo happy! Quals are now behind me! Any exams will be downhill from here.
Research: Plants are almost large enough for protoplast work to begin next week and I have been busily making plasmids. I laid out my hopeful experiment schedule for this summer.
Student: This summer the Bio department has added a weekly grad student meetings on Friday that flip back and forth between research in progress presented by a grad student and journal club. My research in progress is Aug 1.
Mommy: Boo finished first grade with 2 weeks of no strikes and no take home work! They had a play called the Night the Crayons Talked, he was the Blue Crayon, and it was so cute.
Random: I won a grad student jewelry give away from thevexedmuddler! Her stuff on Etsy is absolutely awesome, go have a peek! Now I have to decide which piece I want.. it will be tough, so many amazing things.
