Geeking & drinking

I'm a late 20s molecular biologist trying to get a grip on adulthood and the science industry. With a drink in hand, of course.

I... hail from Appalachian Virginia, drink wine, take ridiculous pictures of my dog, travel a good bit for work, geek out over science, plan #DCSciTweetUp, enjoy photography, hate on anti-vaxers, adore my awesome family, live with a former Navy man (J) that I love very much, shop too much on the internet, often make messes when attempting DIY projects, and share ridiculousness from my weekend retail job.

This is my life. Enjoy!

Two fold dilutions are exactly what this reminded me of!

Day 16: 3 new #DCSciTweetup events posted! #100happydays

Sirius is having his teeth cleaned today. They have to pull two dead teeth- they appear to be baby teeth that never fell out correctly, so hopefully the adult teeth will come in okay. Oh, and he has some mouth mass that they have to remove & biopsy. Sigh. Hopefully it’s all okay.¬†

Bye bye $500. I’m not moving in a few weeks or anything.

Day 15: Sangria! #100happydays (at 100 Montaditos Arlington)

I like the broccoli scan a lot.

Super pleased with my cherry blossom photos from this weekend.
