Anyway, I decided last week that this was going to be the week where I got my ass back into gear and started blogging again. Of course, the week before last, I had decided that last week was going to be the week, but clearly, that didn't happen. As I neared midweek, I was starting to think that maybe I would push things back again, but thankfully, I find myself at work, in between experiments with some time to blog.
I can't believe how insane things are right now. I've been purifying proteins like it's going out of style. Only four more to go at this point. I can't wait until an entire two-week period passes where I don't even so much as look at the FPLC. I'm sick to death of it.
On the plus side, I made some headway with the boring paper from grad school lab and I am about to start writing the paper that caused this protein purification extravaganza. I'm pretty excited to get a paper out under less than a year, but I am freaking exhausted.
During all this time away, I started writing my specific aims for the F32, but I didn't get very far. I really need to get moving on the grant writing, but it just keeps getting thrown to the back burner. Maybe next week...
Hope everyone in the blogosphere is doing well. I can't wait to catch up on everyone's posts.
