I decided to start a new blog series, where I review the last month. That way you can read more of what I have been up to, even if it doesn’t fit into the categories travel or eco-lifestyle. I am also heavily considering expanding my blog categories to some of what you will read below. So what happened in May?
A lot of science
I am a grad student in Molecular Biology and currently in my second year, which has a lot of milestones and hurdles in it. So last month, I had just passed my qualifying exam, which is probably the biggest milestone aside from the actual dissertation. So this month, I was still kind of recovering from that. I also have my third-year talk coming up. That’s a seminar I have to give in front of the department and it is part of my requirements for advancing to candidacy. As an international student, I have to satisfy these requirements early. It is actually very unusual to give this talk so quickly after the qualifying exam. So I didn’t really get to take a break in May, I had to keep working on my research to prepare some data for the talk.
