    Glad it lived up to your expectations. First time with a surgical team is pretty mind-blowing isn't it?

    If you don't get rejected first go, you didn't aim for a journal with a high enough IF ;)

    In this case the IF was quite low, but it was a very specialist journal hoping to increase its IF. So I think they are a little fussy.

Ah ... A one-week holiday ... Just in time ... I needed this. Just about right for a one-week observational internship at the neurosurgery department of the University Hospital ^^

    My dream is to become a neurosurgeon myself. So you may understand I experience it as a great privilege that I am allowed to take an observational internship :)

    Oh! I thought you were just going to walk around and inconspicuously observe. Congratulations on getting a pass!

    Lol well I actually AM going to inconspicuously observe. I'm but a second year undergraduate medicine student lol ... Specialization candidature is only after 6 years, so hopefully I'll pass in 4 years ;) this observation is to get to know the specialty more

Well, I learned in my physics course how to measure the diameter of a single strand of hair using a laser pointer. Definitely going to be useful, I guess?

    Maybe not directly, but has the exercise given you more 'feeling' for the physics concepts presented to you earlier? Has it helped you think?

    out of curiosity why 29th? Thinking about it -I enjoyed my early 20s more than late, my early 30s more than late, and still - tenaciously - hanging on to earlymid 40s (for another week or so

I now have had 10 papers published or accepted for publication. Is that a milestone that deserves celebrating?

If someone asks me about my morals, I tell them I'm a resurrectionist. "Oh, so you're a Christian?" "No, I steal dead bodies for science."

I am sitting with my dog today, he is dying, either won't or can't eat, throws up foam, can't use the bathroom, will not take his pain pills. It's so pitiful to watch him try to respond to my affection. The vet talked me into trying new medication thursday now I wonder if he will last long enough to even take him back the vet to have him put to sleep. He shivers and shakes, breaking my heart..

    We get unconditional love from our dogs - but of course we love them back. Possibly more than any other animal we made dogs - and once you connect with a dog the bond is awfully strong. Comfort and support just like you would any friend

    I have sat on the floor with him all day off and on, I can't get him to take his pain medicine, he's too big to manhandle and feels so bad he is far from his usual jovial self. I am not sure how to get medicine in him, he was taking his pills ground up in egg yolk but not he won't even try that...
