Can Everyone Just Stop

This idea of people being lazy for not having a job really ticks me off. 1) The people saying this are on social media all day ready to spew their hate at the first chance, so chances are they don’t have a job 2) it isn’t exactly easy to get a decent job. In order to get a job you have to have experience in the given area. However, you don’t have experience because you have to have the experience to get a job that would give you experience. It’s a twisted cycle.

Thankfully I am able to work at the lab at the college I attended which gives me research experience and have been doing it for almost a year now. That’s not the point though. Not everyone is able to do something like this in their field. They just have to wait until something comes along and most likely work in a job that does not pay their bills. Yes, some people are lazy so they are jobless, but that isn’t everyone. Once again, it is easier to judge others, rather than looking at the big picture. Stop with the hate and spread love. That probably makes me a “snowflake”.




Back At It

After going stir crazy the last few weeks, I finally went back to the research lab. While it only consisted of doing inventory,  it was good to be back. Of course SDS sheets were just about impossible to find and there are several highly toxic, carcinogenic chemicals that have been sitting around for years.

I did this process with my least favorite professor, but she ended up basically offering me a job for the fall! It’s not a job I want, but it will bring in some extra money and be good for graduate school applications.

Next week I’m back to finding Avian Pox Virus DNA in mosquitos (hopefully).
