I am currently the only graduate student in the lab. Well, there were two of us, but that’s pretty much official over with, and sadly, not a public story, but regardless, she’s gone and I couldn’t be happier!

However, this does mean that when I go out, it’s with post-docs, and I’ve discovered that as jaded as you get as a graduate student, it’s even worse with post-docs. And sadly, being the lone underdog, they won’t let me get away with not drinking, or even just one drink.

And thus there’s probably lots of alcohol and not a lot of sleep in the next few days. Should be fun. No, really, actually, it will be.

T minus two days and counting until my talk. AAHHHHHHHHH!
