Someday, I hope to be very successful in whatever it is that I am doing..finding a cure for a deadly disease or making sense of a tiny biological event in the cell..and I hope to look back on this very rocky past several months and be able to think of it fondly, proudly, think of it as my testing time, and how I made it out with minimum damage, helped by lots of love, TLC, support, good advice and willing listening ears.


For now, I go forth with cautious optimism. A new beginning is in sight for me. A new city, a new post-doc position, a new puzzle to solve.

Yay! I can't help be excited.
