wow. my life has been in what feels like fast-forward for weeks now. (hence the lack of blogging). one of the big explanations for why is that in that earlier shot where you see me & Bambi playing, i proceeded to go back into the synchrotron and collect a data set that FINALLY had enough signal to solve my structure! so, voila…. here it is. 🙂 in its rough form, anyway. it might not be kudos for me to put it on here, but i doubt grandma, mom, or any of my other faithful readers will really understand it anyway. 😉
on the 6th I flew to LA on a free ticket (thank you biology happy hour purchasing miles!) to visit my friend Emily, who I lived with for 2 of my four years at Wheaton. It was great to see her, see the city, and catch up. And I think that a trip to California needs to become a yearly occurrence.
While I was there we ate…. and ate…. and ate. It was wonderful. This was a made-to-order ice cream sandwich shop… delish. I got fresh-from-the-oven chocolate chocolate chip cookies with coffee ice cream. Melt in your mouth fantastic.
I am headed home this weekend to see the fam, and for a family friend’s wedding in SC. Can’t come soon enough! A lot to do between now and then….. oofta.
