I got a new job as a scribe working in the ED. (Emergency department...seriously why do we colloquially refer to them as ER's? Cuz of the show ER?) So far I like it and ind it both challenging and overwhelming. The shifts are 12 hours long and I had two this weekend. Since I am training, they tend to run over because my shift trainer needs to check my charts. I think he's moderately impressed, but I can't really tell. All I know is that I am not completely failing at it. And I like it a hundred times better than my Hollister gig. I have to remind myself that I always feel slightly overwhelmed during the first few weeks of my job and then I start to get the hang of things.

This upcoming weekend is probably my last relay for life event at Purdue.

I have this huge biotech project due in 8 hours that I am entirely unexcited about, so I think I'm going to stop typing and work on that. I just finished a P-chem prelab to get it out of the way (okay, and slightly procrastinate) so I decided to type this to give myself some down time. I'm sort of focused but not really. I really don't like this molecular biotech class because it's the exact same material as my molecular biology class except that the grading is a little worse and some parts are slightly more technical. Actually the reason I don't like biotech as much is because Dr. Konieczny was an amazing professor for molecular biology and my biotech professor mumbles all of his words and doesn't give any practice exams with keys. I have no idea what kind of questions he is going to ask. One would argue that I should be able to know what will be asked, but the phrasing catches me off guard. For instance, when I see design a good vector, I think restriction site that is located in my gene of interest and in an identifying gene of my vector (such as lac-z production), but I don't think "transform the vector using E. Coli" because that's a procedure to make it, not a selection of the vector I'll use. I'm not sure if I made myself clear there. But that's the kind of thing I mean. I hate open-ended questions.

See. Further procrastination.

But hey, I'm pretty happy. Brandon cooked me an absolutely delicious meal last night for a delayed 6 month (it's almost been 7 now) and I'll probably graduate in May. (I better...I have that cap and gown ordered.)

So life's on the up and up. Probably just jinxed myself. Probably gonna loose my job.

I have to be careful to keep my mouth shut in the ED because some people are pretty superstitious about not saying that the ED is slow. Sometimes it is though. ($5 the ED explodes in 15 minutes, lol.)

Thank you for the advice on my photos! I just loved your photos of the coast of Ireland. I made it to Giant's Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher when I was studying abroad last semester but what you captured also looked amazing (and far less crowded with tourists. Bleh.) You're very welcome and hope you have a great Monday!

Thanks :D glad you liked them! Yeah - Tourism Ireland really flog those two places to death. Did you look at the Rathlin island gallery? I think the Cliffs on that island rival those of Moher AND it also have some of the same rock formations as the Giants Causeway as it used to be attached at one point :nod: I haven't been to the Cliffs of Moher yet but it can wait until I'm in the area as I feel like I've already seen just as good :D
