So I thought I would share a few pictures with you. This is what has been consuming my life the last few weeks. MY NEW LAB!!
So here are a few pictures of the new lab I'm helping to start up. It's a very time consuming process, but it's such a great opportunity for a young researcher assistant like me. And introducing myself as the lab manager to reps doesn't hurt either. Hehehehe!
This is what a lab looks like when there is nothing in it. As you can see we don't even have chairs yet. (I know it looks nothing like the labs on CSI, well, no lab looks like that, even fancy new ones.)
I have a room full of empty shelves, drawers, and cabinets that are waiting to be filled with fun new research equipment. And that is all I've been doing for the last two weeks.
Luckily I have finally started to get in supplies, so the shelves aren't as bare any more. I have a handful of items (beakers, flasks, tubes). So the shelves have started to fill up. There are so many things you use everyday that you don't even think about.
I don't even have a computer yet. I've been working on my personal computer for a few weeks now. Some day the computer will come. Someday all my equipment will be here and we will be able to start some science soon, yay!
I'm very happy here all the people seem like really nice people to work with. Change is good, and I'm very glad that this change was forced on me (even if it didn't seem like it was a blessing in February).
I'm hoping to have the majority of set up done by next week, so maybe I won't be so exhausted when I get home every night. I've been putting in a lot of hours right now, but it's totally worth it. Then I'll have time to finish the cuff I'm in the middle of right now and maybe drag out the photo tent and take some pictures of a few new things I've been working on. Next week I promise to get back to beady goodness.
