perfect timing!

Of course, I returned to the blog just in time to travel with no internet and unbloggable activities. Until I know more, I'll say that my interview is over. Also, wow. And finally, holy shit!

Now I get to return to regular lab life and trying to keep myself busier than ever to get my mind off of the waiting game. If you click through, you might have noticed that none of my goals or tasks in the list on the right have changed. That is because none of them have actually been completed. Still. So it is time to do something about that.
In addition to the personal motivation, Ruby-throated Hummingbird (the postdoc advisor) has declared the next 6 weeks the time for "Manuscripts, manuscripts, manuscripts!!!" Even the grad students are all chirping away with this new mantra. Hopefully this will be productive and distracting enough to keep little ol' anxiety-ridden me in a sane state of mind...

Eek. Getting out manuscripts while playing The Waiting Game sounds very trying! I shall send you good vibes.

Your shoes are very, very awesome, btw.

I can relate. I've hardly gotten anything done while waiting for my post-doc to get sorted out. Good luck!

Yay for job interviews! And yay for manuscripts! Do me a favor and send out the "manuscript with too may authors" soon! :) I need a few more to get my 10! Haha! You inspire me to get all of mine out in the next 6 weeks too! Good luck!!!!

Waiting and productivity do not go together, at least for me. So good luck on both fronts!

Yay for manuscripts and interviews! Waiting sucks though. I definitely understand the unbloggable activities (I hope they were fun unbloggables!).

amandamonkey- Thank you for the vibes and shoe love. You'd LOVE the ones I got for graduation!

SS- thank you!

EGF- It is so much more fun to think of 'what-ifs' and 'somedays'! Best of luck to you too!

Sneks- oh yeah, forgot about that one! I will work on it tomorrow!

Sciencegirl- Me neither, usually. Here's to turning over a new less anxious leaf =)

amanda- Stressful but fun. Hopefully I'll get to talk about it all soon!
