Ode to Coffee

Open Adobe Photoshop
Copy, paste, cut, crop.
Build the figure, make it pop.
Forgot to save? Better not!

I'm putting down the pipette,
So I wait, the timer’s set.
I check my notes and forgot a step.
Now immediate regret.

No time to waste, here we go.
But my head is moving mighty slow.
Way too much science info.
Energy is running low.

But no, not yet, I can't give up!
Let me fill my coffee cup.
With cream or sugar, or dark and strong,
When it comes to coffee you can't go wrong.

Liquid life, power restored!
Fueled by caffeine and sugar galore,
Energized with proper vigor,
Roll up my sleeves, to the bench once more!

Four Ph.D. Students' Journeys to Graduate School – Part 2: Preparing Academically and Thinking About Careers

Last Friday, I shared Part 1 of an audio blog post, in which four Ph.D. students in the sciences, including myself, discussed the motivations and goals behind our decision to continue on to higher education and pursue a Ph.D.

Today I am excited to share the second half of this audio blog post, which delves into our academic and professional experiences, starting with our undergraduate careers that contributed to our decision and readiness to apply to graduate school.

A full transcript of the recording is provided below, in which any biology or graduate school specific terms are explained briefly.
