Holy shit is grad school keeping me busy...My project is going really well, and we should be able to publish a couple of papers probably by the end of summer, so I really shouldn't complain. But lately I am finding myself in dire need of some balance, like trading the science paper readings for cooking, playing video games and working out for one...

So I bought Skyrim almost a year ago now, and I only started playing it this weekend, because I've been so busy with school thus far. Well, I may be a little late to the party, but I gotta say: THIS GAME FUCKING ROCKS!!! smile

Every now and then, a game gets mixed or average reviews, despite being an outstanding game. The mixed reviews can sometimes make you overlook a hidden gem that really should not be missed. Alice: Madness Returns DEFINITELY is one such game...I highly recommend it! smile

So I've only got one exam left on the 17th, and then I am all done, graduated, outta here, and back to Montreal to do a PhD in Human Genetics. I made my decision of which supervisor I was going to go with, and I am stoked!

I am so lucky. Montreal is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, especially in...

Oh yeah I saw that one...it's sick. I love how they use this girl as a human skipping rope, and send people flying in the air like it's no big deal...Like Amanda said, I can't believe some of this stuff is humanly possible! smile

So I was about to bitch about having to write my thesis, but then I saw this video about a homeless Korean boy who entered Korea's Got Talent and stole the show. I don't think I'll ever complain again. Watch this, it is so inspirational:

Taught my last lab as a Teaching Assistant...it will be so weird to not see these first-year kids again, I love them! I hope I was able to make a difference in their lives at this critical point...first year is so important! Lots of new freedom and also new responsibilities all at once, hopefully they are all successful from this point on...Wow...

So I risked an offer by asking for a one-week extension (I can't believe I was able to keep a level head and not accept an offer like this on the spot), and I pushed the envelope with the other potential offer, and my gamble worked. I now have two offers! I can't believe the two most powerful researchers in the Human Genetics...

I am going to have to take the evening to think about this, but I do believe someone made me an offer I can't refuse! smile (see my previous post)

My number one pick (the very powerful one) has made an offer, so I think it's time for me to take my rightful place in the world.... smile

Man, does that ever feel good.

So I seem to be doing everything but writing my thesis, so I thought why not put a new entry in my SG blog that I haven't updated in forever?

Lots has been happening since I last wrote here: I almost certainly will be going back to McGill for my PhD, which will be in Human Genetics. I went on a trip to Montreal...
