Yesterday we spent a long time setting up for Christmas!
Now, some might think that it is a little early...but we don't! First of all, if you are going to spend a long time setting everything up (and we set everything up...lights outside, door hanger, stockings, EVERYTHING) then you might as well enjoy it! Also, the test I was supposed to have today was canceled and we have a guest speaker instead (don't worry...the information will be on the final!). So I decided that I was going to take this weekend off and not study. Perfect time to set up the Christmas stuff. Plus, I have a huge cell physiology final the Monday after Thanksgiving (what a horrible thing to do) so I won't have time the day after Thanksgiving to help set up.
So far Braxton has been good with the tree. He has been touching the lights and saying "light" and of course he always comments on how cool it is ("coooooooooooooooool!").
Yay! Christmas break is getting closer everyday! Thank goodness! That means a break from school!
In other news, I am trying to figure out what I want to do this summer. I am probably going to do 10 weeks of research (good-bye summer break v_v). I have a couple options to choose from and can't decide what I should do. Hopefully I will decide soon! They are:
1) Evaluation of up-regulated genes during in vitro infection of Yersina pestis to evaluate virulence factors (and possible treatment interventions)
2) The effect of perinatal iron deficiency on hippocampus development (to assess the effects iron has on brain development/learning disorders)
I like both. The first one really complements my micro background (plus I get to work in a BSL 2 and sometimes 3!!!!!!) The second one is more reflective on what I am interested in (perinatal/neonatal stuff). However, I have recently really been leaning towards anesthesiology or surgery (however I don't like the surgeon hours!!). We'll see. I have a week to think so I will think hard!
Alright, I have to write up an interview/physical exam.
