a nerdy sidebar.
so during the day i work in a lab. yes, i am a huge scientist nerd. i thought i would share a lovely snapshot i took of a malaria parasite in a red blood cell. in blue you see its DNA and in green you see the lovely protein that i work on tagged with green fluorescent protein and glowing. and yes, i work with blood and parasites and no, i cannot get malaria at work.
experimental research is pretty frustrating at times (when nothing ever works) but i still genuinely love science and hope to one day teach at the college level (and of course continue to crochet and create ;) my new etsy shop has really given me a nice distraction from the long stressful haul of graduate school and served as a wonderful creative outlet.
