I want to thank all of me readers for putting up with my lack of updates. I have been grossly negligent of my blog and etsy as of late. So I decided to let everyone know why.
I was informed at the beginning of February that the research lab I work in will be closing for a few years, and will open again (someday). That left me without a job in very bad economy. So for the last few months, I have put everything on the back burner and concentrated on finding a new research position (easier said then done).
I have not been posting as much, I have not been making new things, I have not been keep up with specific groups I am a part of, and I've missed several deadlines for art shows. And the biggest one of all, I have stopped all frivolous spending, so that means; no clothes, no toys, no extras, and most of all (and the most difficult to give up) NO BEADS OR GLASS.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have now had two interviews for a research position in the pediatrics equivalent of what I do know.
I was told I was the rookie of all the applicants, I had much less experience then everyone else. But I had a lot of pluses like; I already work pharacogenomics, I already know how to use a chip based system, I do all my own extractions, and I know a few people that have worked with that lab.
So I'm just waiting to hear what their decision is. I'm really hoping for good news at this point. I will make sure to update everyone, no matter if it's good news or bad news.
The ferrets are hoping for good news too. As you can see they have been hamming it up to try to keep my spirits up for the last few months.
I just wanted to let everyone know why I had been missing in action as of late. And thank you all for continuing to stop by.
