Yep, that’s me dlubes. Miss you bby
Today was a great day.
- I was awarded my first grant. It’s the Unpaid Internship Award from NYU’s Wasserman Center for Career Development. It’s a small one but for only a year of undergraduate work, $1000 is a nice sum!
- I was offered a position as an Associate Editor for Biology and Biomedical Sciences at the Journal of Young Investigators, the premier undergraduate research publication in the United states.
- There’s some substantial progress being made on my first three peer-reviewed publications (all due out in the next six months or so) and we’ve started some work on a conference abstract for a presentation that my boss is giving in February 2015.
- My mentor offered me a scaled-down position for the fall semester (to accommodate courses and wanting to pursue other opportunities), so that’ll be some great paid work. I have an interview with another professor tomorrow for a fall research position.
I have great friends. I have a great job. I have a great boss and great coworkers. I have a great family. I live in an amazing city. Life is good. Hard work is paying off.
