Another source of entertainment in the lab are my labmates! They are all so animated and really have a close-knit relationship. I feel as though they are brothers and sisters because they always tease each other. Even though I don’t understand what they are saying most of the time, the tones in their voices explain in all. The bickering and laughter can be heard down the hall on the 4th floor of the chemistry building.
My labmates are so accommodating and generous. I really enjoy the fact that they really want to share their favorite places with me. It feels like every week, we make our lunch break something to remember. I make it a goal to always try something new. I let my Thai friends order for me and I get to eat what they eat! So far, it has been wonderful. I feel as though I’ve been here for months and I’m falling in love with my lab and Thailand.
It’s been rewarding learning the computational side of biology, but once I’ve finished with analyzing the data, I hope I get a chance to work with cells again.
Till the next update,
