good morning everyone! i am alive i swear! it’s been particularly crazy in the lab lately (hey phase III clinical trials ending…i’m looking at you!) but i have proof that i have not turned into a reclusive cat lady. Megan spotted me out last night at first friday—hey girl!
i have declared this weekend:
retail therapy operation rejuvenate. this will include: proper lie ins, coffee with coconut milk, painting my nails, going to the natural history museum on this rainy day & nourishing meals a plenty!
i admit that my sleeping has been poor lately. for the first time in my adult life, i have been waking at ungodly hours and worrying/trying to solve experimental design issues/math ad nauseam until dawn. i also confess to an episode of starting to cry but then bursting into laughter when my rational self started to parse through the stressful situation in which i find myself at present. did i actually think that drug discovery at a start up biotech would be easy? no. i like the challenge and competitiveness. poor nate! halllp meh.
so i’m a touch melodramatic right? i might not be the best at managing my stressors but at least i remain passionate about my life and everything that shapes me along the way. i would also like to take this opportunity to apologize to my family & friends for neglecting them. i love you so much and have been selfish with my time. i’m not purposely avoiding you, just taking ‘me’ time to maintain my sanity! x
if you have any tips to give me re: stress management i am willing to try them! hit me up in the comments! until then, you’ll find me in ‘therapy’ aka stocking my closet with this:
