My love for you is a stampede of rabid velociraptors.


i’m not even sure if velociraptors can get rabies, but in any case, I’m feeling like I’m being chased by them. Not because I’m in love – I saw a blog title something along the lines of ‘my love for you is a herd of wild horses’ and have been thinking about it a bunch – but because the end of my PhD training is far-too-quickly approaching and I feel like I don’t have enough time.

i know that this isn’t a feeling unique to me or to my situation, and that is why i felt the need to write it here. Part of the purpose of this blog is to help me remember that i have things going on in my life that have NOTHING to do with lab work. and for that, I am thankful. it’s just hard to find time for these things right now.

I had big plans for this month of blogging. Did you know that September is National Sewing Month? I was going to showcase some of my favorite sewing projects with you. I might still be able to do it.

But not today.

I’ll get through these next two weeks. They’ll be super busy. But at the end of them, I hope to be able to report to you that I have finished the figures for my first paper, am well on my way to a second paper, and maybe, just maybe, have the ‘OK’ to start writing my thesis. And then, maybe I can celebrate National Sewing Month the way it was meant to be celebrated.

say your prayers and cross your fingers for me. i can do this.
