Well, my time here may be winding down, but that doesn't mean I don't have another few minutes to wait before my next rinse. Which, coincidentally, coincides with the amount of time it takes to write a blog post.
For all of June I've been learning for money at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) at Woods Hole, MA. Which, if you didn't already know, is where it's at in terms of doing the embryology. While technically, I'm here as a teaching assistant, I have managed to learn far more than I have taught. And that isn't just me saying that we have really great students here. We also have great faculty, course assistants, equipment, facilities and more antibodies and material than you can shake a stick at. Which leaves me to absorb as much as I can, while also trying to complete my own projects while I'm here. I've done pretty well getting them started - less well getting them finished. Suffice it to say that four weeks (minus one for a great conference in Boston) is not nearly enough.
Maybe if I stayed in the lab more, and didn't go off to hunt for my own animals so often...

Next stop: Saskatoon for the weekend to celebrate with family, and then my long-anticipated two weeks at home!
