Although I'm often confused for a high schooler I'm actually a bona fide, college-graduated, grown-up. So the stress of final exams and getting ready for Christmas should be a thing of my past, right? Hardly. I have 3 major deadlines coming up and that mentality of "just have to survive until next Friday" is kicking in.
So if you'll indulge me in a short rant, and forgive the photo-less post, I'll be sure to make it up to you.
- I have a huge experiment going on. It's the kind where in at 7:00 a.m., mouse-wrangling until 10:00 p.m., and working most of those hours in between. And one of my mice was missing an eye and it was gross. Ugh all around.
- My manuscript resubmission is due by next Friday. I don't have all my results (ahem, see above) and I have boatloads of edits left. And I kind of need this to get published.
- I have to give a big presentation to my department on Wednesday. Who has TIME for this?
Ok done. Thanks. So as of next Friday, I'm on cruise control until Christmas. I just have to survive until then.
