[Daily Prompt] Learning is Difficult

Well, another delicious semester is about to begin, again.

Tomorrow is the annual Food Science Grad Student Orientation (which we’ve all sat through), but hey it’s always a good time! It’ll be be my one-year anniversary of being a graduate student at Virginia Tech. Not going to lie – and if you knew me this past year – it was a difficult journey to this point of being happy in this new realm and environment. Super happy to be here with amazing people, though! 🙂

To be honest, I can’t really wait for this semester to start – but does it ever really start/end when you’re in grad school? Pretty sure those fun little things called “breaks” are merely a lie and/or a figment of the imagination. There is definitely a lot of things to look forward to: Research, Projects, Food Science Club, start-up stuff, teaching, etc. The one class that I needed to take in order to graduate, however, is not being offered! Haha. Oh well.

Some exciting things from semesters past though?

    Say doesn’t your lab have those metal surrounds for stacks of plates? They allow you to move about twenty plates at once and they don’t collapse. Still nice to see what your work-space looks like.

    • No they don’t! Haha. This was actually for a lab I was TA-ing. On that note, I don’t think we have those in our regular labs either. I just knock things over quite frequently too. But then, I was transfering the plates and almost ready to bag them – at this point. My own fault, really.
