    To me!

    I haven't been around for a little while, and I'm sorry for that; I've missed the forum and everybody here.

    The reason I haven't been around is that I have been finishing up my graduate school application.

    On Friday, I was not only accepted, but offered a teaching assistantship in the PhD program within the Chemistry Department at my first choice graduate school. This comes with a full scholarship, and a living stipend. I was a science nerd before, but now I can be one for real, and get paid to do it :)

    I just wanted to thank everybody here for supporting me through the last couple of years, as they've been tough.

    Thanks for everything, guys!

    Awwww, thanks you guys :) it's so nice to be a member of such a distinguished herd! i'm super psyched to be a professional nerd. you guys have really been a source of stability and sanity in my ridiculously crazy life, from concussed loaches, to heat waves, to intercontinental travel, to low maintenance care for my full time fish sitter. Thanks for all the help and advice, from myself and from my fish!
