I am ashamed that it has been so long since I blogged. I doubt that anyone is still listening. Well, if you are, here is a general update of the in-between. I hope to start writing more as I have passed the treacherous mid-term slump, moving in the final quarter of the semester.  I survived through a minor psychological meltdown that occurred mid-semester, very likely caused by daily stressors in my life in relation to the high volume of school/lab workload. My stress/anxieties had reached capacity, manifesting in loss of energy, lack of motivation, and an emotional meeting with my mentor/professor. I explained my situation and we moved forward in our joint research/academic endeavors. I got bumped down the line from my study to the first author to last author. I was a little salty at first but then I realized that this motion of events was a logical progression/outcome.  I am happy to step down to a minor role in the study thus passing the figurative baton to the next in line. I have 2 semesters left after the Fall 2017 term, and there are only 5 weeks of lectures followed by final exams. There are additional research opportunities I will be involved in starting as a minor role as a research assistant with one of my other professors, Dr. K. (clinical psychology). So far, just helping compile research, which I absolutely love to do. I am excited to see where it goes. More to come…
