Summer Haze

I apologize for being such a bad blogger. I've wanted to, really, I have, but sometimes I feel like I've bitten off more than I can chew this summer. I'm freaked about my wedding, about taking my GRE, about applying to grad schools... I work full time now basically, 9-5 M-F, and more on the weekends. Apparently I don't handle stress all that well! Its like I punish myself unnecessarily, which just makes everything worse.
I've slipped on my diet recently, what with all that's been going on. I've only gained about a pound back but the real detriment is in losing sight of my goals. I hopped back on today with an even stricter plan. Hopefully this helps get me focused in areas of my life besides eating! 
Because it would be too hard to explain what's been going on since I last posted, let me just catch you all up with some pictures!

 I'm learning a lot in lab, my research project is chugging along (though we're facing some set backs due to how new our lab is and the fact that all of us are new to this!) I really love research, and our model organism. They get cuter and cuter the more I work with them. Yes, we have to cut their tails off (I know Blogadog hates that stuff) but I assure you its as humane as possible. 
I can appreciate the desert heat

My city at dusk
 Part of the reason that I've been so absent lately is that I've been hanging out with my friend that recently went through a break up. I know it was a really hard thing to go through, and I didn't want her to go through it alone. She seems much better now-- sometimes all you need is someone to vent to.

Officially one of my favorite foods: Thai Beef Salad

<3 bean sprouts
 We had my cousin over for a few days as he happened to be in town for a couple of weeks. Family means food time, so of course we ate out and had delicious Asian food. :)
On the road again

Doom learning how to jetski. He seemed to like it, I discovered that I HATE jetskis.

Staying in a hotel for a couple nights was pretty awesome. Especially because Doom's dad paid for it.

Driving home at 5am
Doom and I went on a mini-vacation. His dad and his dads girlfriend reeeally wanted us to go so we went! It was a place only a couple hours away, right by the Colorado river. And so we played in the sun and went shopping and gambled (hey it was free money) and ate cheap food (and way too much of it) and drank (ugh headache) and got to hang out with drunk white people for 2 days. Overall, it was good.
