Summer’s nearly gone!

Summer is nearly over and I haven’t blogged much, I know. I taught a class which was a good experience that helped me get back in touch with why I got into science in the first place. The Dartmouth biology labs all moved to the new Life Sciences Center which is still being finished. And I am finally starting a job search and have a much more optimistic outlook on things. Research is going better, maybe I’m actually employable- as an academic or somewhere else. I am still struggling to get that work-life balance I want- I think it is really hard for people in creative professions to attain that, but I’m trying hard. I get to celebrate my birthday in 5 days and I’m going to a concert in a few weeks. Hopefully this will turn into some good new experiences this fall.
