yup, still here occasionally. not sure why. i was looking through my old journal entries and holy shit was i a lolrandomrawremoXDDD kid. sort of painful, but also kind of funny. whatever floated my fourteen-year-old self's boat i guess.
this summer i'm working as an organic chemist at my university, with one more year left until i graduate with a major in general chemistry and a minor in german language. i'm thinking of applying to graduate school in analytical chemistry. it would be cool to be a forensic analytical chemist. this might sound selfish but i'd like to have a job where i'm needed and my work is directly beneficial. it gets me out of bed in the morning-- "you gotta do this because no one else can". i mean, i'm sure there are actually tons of other people who could, but doing a phd and then on-job training for analytical chemistry is pretty restrictive and it's harder to find a replacement than for a position that anyone could do with a couple weeks training. not to dis those kinds of jobs, it's just not fulfilling to me personally.
nothing much else. well actually i joined a saber dueling club. we wear tons of padding gear and use polycarbonate lightsabers to bash each other. it's very entertaining.
