Picked a PhD

So I've decided who really needs a master's degree? I mean I've worked in a lab for the past 8 months, and had several excellent lab positions/experiences before that. And I've just let Long Hair (my boss/supervisor... who does in fact have long hair for a man) and one of his colleagues talk me into just applying right into the PhD program next year.

Well there's a 4 year commitment decided upon in a hour.... well not really an hour, this is something I've been talk with myself about for the last 4 months. So hurray! it's all decided and stuff.

In other news, I moved up to my new lab today... going to take a break (kinda) from mesenterics and spend some time learning about myometrium. Here's a look around.

Well not really a look around, labs are all confidential and stuff... so instead it's just a generic back drop style shot. As for that totally awesome shirt I'm wearing, it's vintage liz claiborne, picked it up for 5 bucks on ebay. The belt is from pac sun.... its was cheep... that's all I know about it. Oh I found it here.

Anyways, this is the face of someone committed to being a student till she's 27 (minimum).


  1. Congrats! I thought I was going to go that route (not science, PhD). I completed one full time year of M.A. work on medieval history. I got published, presented papers at international conferences, and was recruited by several big name PhD programs. Then I worked in the Dean's office...don't work in the Dean's office--no matter what they offer you ;) LOL

  2. Lol don't work in the deans offices, sounds like good advice!
