Back on yer heads


Back in classes, back to working my butt off. Honestly, that butt ought to be nonexistent by now. Check it out: (I'm procrastinating again of course) This week, I had final draft of paper due for bio this past Tuesday, exam in chem last night, bio GRE in the morning at oh-fuck-o'clock, exam in cognition coming Wed., plus more draft material due, problem sets due, and in between I'm supposed to be researching who's doing neuroscience work I'm interested in and where are they and should I be applying to those labs.

Oh, and I'm looking for summer internships in labs or other related-to-my-goals places. Have sent in a couple resumes at biotech firms in Cambridge, and one to the Museum of Science (which happens to have one in cognitive psych, go figure). So if you're in a position to point me toward something, by all means, point :)

Ok, better go googlemap the directions to the place where the thing is in the morning now. Then run through some more material, set the coffeemaker to have steaming fresh Elixir of Life ready, double check alarm clock, and Get Some Goddamn Sleep For Once.

Except I kind of want to work my chem problems instead. Sigh.

Last time I took the GRE, I steadfastly refused to study beforehand. I had to leave the test to go work all night, as it was, so I couldn't be bothered. Did fine just the same, so I think you shouldn't worry, seeing as you're wicked smaht.

thanks, Mel! (hug)

My prep was pretty minimal: I looked through the sample test, said to myself, "oh--plant stuff; crap," looked up some things that were kind of fuzzy (what exactly *does* the TATA box do?), and then putzed around for a while.

I thought, and you probably thought this, too: "geez I've been studying advanced biology really intensively flat out for a couple of years now, I damn well better know a good chunk."
