What next?

Well I'm finished with my PhD. After I make a few editorial corrections, convert my Word document to a PDF and submit my dissertation to the Graduate School, I will be finished with school. I am very excited! But at the same time I'm at a bit of a loss. You see, I've been going to school for a very, very long time. With the exception of the year I took off between finishing my B.S. and my M.S., I've been going to school since I was 5. And, no, I'm not going to tell you how long that really is. Just take my word for it - it's been a long time. So tell me, what should I do now that I am no longer a student? Update my blog? Read a good, non-science book? Take a walk? Go to Disneyland? Clean my stuff out of the lab, pack up the house and get ready to move to the location of my postdoc?

Silly Girls

This past weekend we took the girls to see Mike. Mike is a tiger and the new LSU mascot. And wouldn't you know it, K was afraid of Mike and didn't really want to get any where near him. A loved Mike, but she was afraid of the bronze tiger statue in front of Mike's cage. Go figure.
