Working in a lab is like
having a home away from home. My favorite experience(s) in the
lab is how everyday’s life fits in with our experiments.
For example, my group (which includes Dr. de Boer, a post doc,
a graduate student and myself) can be working on an experiment
that is extremely intense; however, our conversations will be about
lighthearted stuff, such as the last movie we saw, or what we did
over the weekend. In between our conversations, I’m able
to ask questions about how a specific part works, or the ultimate
goals of the project.
