I started working at the lab last week, and at first it was not the glamorous job I envisioned; I wasn't looking at slides, seeing the remarkable changes in the cells, finding new discoveries - nope! Instead I created some graphs and placed over 2000 pipette tips into containers. Wow, talk about a boring start.
Thankfully, I didn't quit then. The next day I learned to stain tissue samples so that spies could be analyzed for tissue growth. That seemed much more exciting to me! I'm glad that I was able to finally learn a useful and practical lab technique, one that I will be able to use in the future, I am sure. It was also nice to do something with my hands, instead of clicking away on a computer. Here's to the rest of the summer!
