Summer

What are you doing this summer?
There's snow on the ground here but for a while it was really nice out with the birds migrating back and everything going green again.

My plans haven't firmed up yet but it should be interesting. I'm graduating and leaving my current place, possibly to live with my family for a bit until I'm at the next step. I applied to some grad schools but I'm not sure yet if I'll go into them or seek out a job. I'm wait listed to go to another 5 week french program in Quebec, so I'm hoping that a chunk of my summer will be spent there, plus I'm planning a 3-4 week trip to Mexico to learn Spanish, maybe in July, but sooner if Quebec doesn't work out.
Other than that, since I've graduated, I'll actually have some free time on my hands which will be nice. I'd like to do some reading and some biking and some seeing of friends.

What about yous's?

Do you play shows or do you watch them raub?

Speaking of which, back when I was a no-good punk in my home town, I used to go to lots of $5 local shows at local venues because it was fun and a lot of my friends played in bands. Since moving to my University town (5 years ago) I really haven

I haven't gone camping for a long long time, I miss it. What do you guys do? Do you bring tents or do you have something else?

We pitch our tents, of course. We usually just tell mother nature to go fuck herself and dominate the outdoors. This year me and another one of our friends wants to do something in the mountains, although nothing is in stone yet. Maybe something in Tennessee. Although northern Michigan makes for some great camping. We've even discussed maybe doing something in Canada at some point.

pretty much what hex said. last year was pretty rugged. hex and i went camping with our friends on an island last year. we were in the middle of lake michigan, with no electricity, no plumbing, no cell phones.... just chipmonks, beavers, and coyotes. i think we ended up covering a distance of about 36+ miles on foot during our trip. made some great memories. i'm actually hoping for something slightly less rugged this time, but we'll see ;p

My current job ends in July (and hopefully I'll have solidified grad. school plans for October), so I'm coming home in August to see friends and family. Before then, though, I plan to go camping and doing lots of little weekend trips once my boyfriend is done with his current degree (and assuming the weather holds up)

Everyone's camping eh? Gonna have to give that a shot. My girlfriend isn't really outdoorsy, but maybe I can trick her into going.

Stormy I don't remember what you're doing in school right now. I'm guessing something like literature/english, right? And what are you applying for for grad school? Also, are you still with the same bloke?

Still working the same job @ the cable company, just been moving up the pay scale and the ranks. Anya's dad, and niece will be coming in July we're thinking, so I'll be using a bulk of my paid time off then. Other than that, probably be the same ol' same ol', doing stuff to the house here and there and chillin', when I'm not workin'.

Not in school (yet?). I've been working as a research assistant in the UK for about two years, doing stuff with embodied cognition/psychology. I'm trying to get a masters in psychology, though I'm pursuing freelance writing... of shit... to respect the time I also spent studying English/literature. My boss is changing universities, and she would like to supervise me for my masters degree. If I follow her, I'll probably get an MPhil in social and developmental psychology. If I don't follow her, I'll aim for an MsC in experimental psychology. Statistics is my biggest weakness, so I'd rather the MsC, but working with her has been really fulfilling, so I don't mind sacrificing the type of degree.

Yeah, we've been together for a year and a half. He's fluffy. ::sappy face::

Do you have any larger goals in mind when it comes to research, or are would you rather gain more laboratory/research experience before making goals?

well since i just have the basics from school and no real world experience i definitely need more to know what i want to pigeon hole myself into. for now id be happy micropipetting a million litres a day and doing it again the next day, but working on addiction and other opiate side effects would be cool. in grade 6 i made a mouse/rat maze to see which was smarter; in high school i built a model of nicotinamide and rationalized how nicotine possibly altered energy production since it was so similar and even brought my smoker friend into class to testify that smoking made him feel lazy haha.
good news: the clinical researxh associate program sent me an acception letter today, now i just have to clear my cc debt so i can pay the $630/course plus books. sheesh this better improve my odds by 1000%.

i remember you posting something or other about xenopus oocytes amelia, what are you into? ribbit.
