Happy Halloween!

I'm sad that I cant do anything for Halloween this year. I'm sad that I'm too busy for most things, like cooking, cleaning, breathing, reading, drawing, walking, hiking... The list goes on. Someday I'll enjoy all the holidays.. Someday. First I have to graduate!!! In the mean time, I hope you all enjoy :)

The Great Hunt (Wheel of Time book 2)

I reviewed the first book of this series awhile ago. I must say, I found the second book even better (much better, in fact) than the first. It seems like the voice actors did a better job this time around. Also, story-wise the characters were much less annoying. Some were a little too predictable for my taste, and some things were repetitive (for example, characters always complaining about the same thing, or not getting over things at all really). Besides the minor character issues, I liked the story and the adventure much more in this one, after the first book it really opens up the world further.
I'm quite looking forward to the rest of the series (and there are like a bajillion more books!)
Also, a side-note: I don't really like how Ogier are drawn,because I envisioned Loial to be much different, so perhaps I'll post a more refined version of a sketch I made of what MY Ogier would look like. I mean, the wiki link above and the cover here --> show them as being just too human-like, which bugs me for some reason.

Its strange to think that I have in-laws now, and that I share a name with them. Strange, strange indeed. I don't have much in common with them, especially since its football season and I'm odd man out when it comes to that. But, hey, I suppose I'll learn to love most of them.
Doom and I went and visited his father and his father's girlfriend/domestic partner/notsurewhattocallher. Amidst the screaming at the television, I downed a giant pumpkin cider thing and ate chips and fell asleep and played a plague game on Doom's phone. Exciting, isn't it?
I wish I got sports, but I've never been a sports person. I enjoy playing sports on occasion, like playing catch with Doom, or playing horse, but yeah. My family just doesn't watch sports.
Hopefully Doom doesn't find me boring for that.

Science is a lifestyle

My days are filled with early mornings and late evenings in lab. I love lab, but I do wish that I didn't have to prioritize classes above lab. Especially seeing as I didn't do as well as I should have on the first 2 exams of the year -_-' But I'll do better... Its a struggle, but I think I'm learning to manage my time a little better. Responsibilities at home, however, are another story. And of course, this means I don't get to see my hubby as much as I'd like. 
So I'm usually at school 12+ hours a day, but at least lab is getting exciting. I'll be jumping into a lab-mate's project so that we can get published before we graduate (which would be super cool). So here's a glimpse at what I've been up to:
Staring into the scope for many many hours a day. This time I came across what seemed to be a little tadpole with a craniofacial abnormality. Interesting, but not the focus of my research at the moment!
I have unwittingly become the lab's pathologist it seems! I don't mind, I find it interesting. Here we see some easily treatable infestation of some shed skin.

Looking at embryos, counting out and dividing groups, planning experiments, treating and cleaning and writing down everything... The life of a scientist, ahahah.

I've also been watching my little froggies grow up right before my eyes, the hungry little monsters :)

A spaceship for my brain

Doom and I celebrated being married for 2 months at a Greek food festival (mostly we were trying to forget the stress of this semester!)

Earrings I bought from one of the vendors at the fest.
 Art, I miss you, stay with me, don't go....

I apologize for my lack of blogging. Not only to any readers I might happen to have (har har) but to myself. I need a spaceship for my brain sometimes, something to take me out of this hectic life of breathless panic.
I should post more. It gives my right brain satisfaction and gives my imagination substance.
