Hey everyone! Hope you're all well and you're enjoying your bank holiday weekend! I've had quite a productive week, I sent off my cloning samples for sequencing so hopefully I get that back these days and I've managed to fix my problem from a few weeks ago and I also did some more DNA extractions so I should finish all 350 of them this week too! Hooray for nearly seeing the end of this little section of experiments etc! And then it's figuring out the next course of action, it's going to be a stressful few years haha!

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! I've had a bit more luck in the lab this week which is always good! I guess it's to be expected when you're doing research and doing experiments that haven't been done before so you're bound to get complications :') But fingers crossed that this week I can do some diagnostic experiments to see if it's all working and hopefully I can finally have some data the week after.. a girl can hope haha! I do apologise in advance for boring you all with my Science talk every week but I guess it's what I do everyday haha! And thank you for all of your lovely comments! :)

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! I had quite a tough week in labs this past week but I'm slowly learning to not be so disheartened, as everyone always tells me: 'It's science it always goes wrong and be suspicious when it goes right!' Haha! Sometimes I feel like I'll be getting somewhere and then I have to take 10 steps back but I'm getting better at figuring out what steps to take to figure out what's gone wrong and why and then what I should do next. Luckily I have a really nice post doc who's so patient with me and is there to help! #FirstYearPhDProblems haha. Luckily though by the end of the week we figured out my problem and we now know how to fix it so I'm going to do some more experiments these weeks and hopefully get some actual results! Woo! :)

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! The sun has finally come out in England this past week which has been really nice! So I've been relaxing outside this weekend, although I think it's back to rain tomorrow which I'm not looking forward to!

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well! Yesterday I went to Secret Cinema in London where they showed 28 Days Later and it was pretty awesome! We didn't really know what to expect and it was a bit on the pricey side. My ticket came to £40 as I'm a student and we went on a Saturday so it was weirdly cheaper than other days but I think it was worth it! I don't want to give too much away in case anyone is going but it's like a "cinema experience" so I guess it's a bit like a cross between Fright Night at Thorpe Park (scary zombie people) with some running before watching the film but it was really cool and we all had to dress in scrubs! :)
