I just went to my first meeting for this program that sets up PCC students with summer research internships at PSU, and it looks like there's a possibility that I might actually be able to do an internship this summer, but that's not as exciting as the fact that this whole program is streamlined (way more than I realized) into PSU's science department, and I can now earn credits for going to free science lectures, and when I transfer to PSU I will basically be plonked right into an NIH-sponsored program there. So now I am taking some different classes next term from what I had originally intended, and also I have much more direction and access to way more resources than I had imagined I would in my first year. There is a whole support system of instructors and mentors and coordinators and classes to get me where I need to be with the highest immersion rate possible. If all goes as planned this means that I will do my internship next summer and start PSU next fall.

SQUEEEEEEEEE

Basically I am totally thrilled to death right now.

Thanks, NIH!

AWESOME news, Nigel, congrats!

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Thank you!

The other part of what this does that I didn't mention is that it is directly oriented at networking and community-building... basically, I am gaining access to social resources and a research community that I wasn't expecting to have access to for at least another year and a half. Best of all, this program is a brand-new baby one, and already two of last year's alumni have been offered regular research jobs, one at PSU, one at OHSU.

I got a housemate last night. The empty room is no longer empty, for the next couple of weeks, because my friends are breaking up and the girl one needed a place to stay. I has a bit of a sad, because I really like these friends and am bummed that they couldn't make it work out.

I have to break up with a guy.

I have a feeling this is going to suck and involve crying.

Well, bring a hanky along for him, then.

He's going to have to bring his own damn hanky.

I really really want to break up with him via text but that would be really rude. I should probably take him out for a beer and try to break it to him easy.

Make sure you have an escape route. I know I hate it when they try to latch on and sob on my shoulder, demanding to know whhyyyyy?!!?! Maybe one of your friends will drive the get-away car.

For sure!

My plan is to do it at a bar and pay cash, so that after I tell him I can bolt. "Sorry, I think you're a great guy but I'm just not feeling it."

Gah. He just texted me with an apology for last night. My stomach hurts. I hate causing pain to decent people.
