Today was our end of the year lab party so it was a long day of work followed by trekking out to my mentor's apartment for the party. It was a nice get together, we gave out funny lab member awards which I think went over well.
My mentor told me today that all of my RAs wrote about how much they adore me in their final papers. Apparently I have them convinced that they completely designed the current study we're piloting! :) I really do value their feedback and hard work so I guess that comes through in my interactions with them.
So now we have a little down time before our internship program starts and so I'm planning a long weekend away with my sisters. Just a girls weekend of laying by the pool, drinking fancy alcohol drinks and getting massages and pedicures. I can't wait!!
