Hey everyone, hope you’re all doing well.
I haven’t been doing anything too exciting lately. I drove down to Ohio to visit family friends over the 4th of July weekend with my parents, so I’ve developed a new hatred for Ohio speed limits. Unfortunately, I don’t hate Ohio as much as other people from Michigan do, so that’s really all I hate about Ohio (if we exclude the 2008 primaries).
As for work, I’m having a great time doing my clinical research. It’s nice to be in charge of my own work. I’m working through the med school’s Student Biomedical Research Program, which is what most med students who are working this summer are doing. It’s a great way to encourage research, not only for students to seek out summer work, but since we get stipends from the school, it makes it easier for principal investigators to take on student researchers without worrying about pay.
So, overall, I’m having a pretty nice summer, despite my lack of real vacations. Hanging out with friends that I haven’t seen well this past year has been a real treat. Here’s a picture of my friends after a late-night turkey bacon experience:
Alright, gotta run. Take care everyone!
