It's been less than one week and I've already learned so much.
Remember all of those mechanisms from O. chem? How about all of those metabolic pathways covered in biochem? Oh yes, they are relevant, and they are exactly what companies want to know if you know. I hope to perform my first real experiment tomorrow now that orientation is over and all of the required documents are in their place.
Most of the days here in Cambridge have been cloudy and comfortable, quite the opposite as I am told by friends and family still in El Paso. Weekdays are not filled with as much sightseeing as I had anticipated but the material and topics in lab are truly enticing. There are so many new concepts to grasp and every bit of information is vital to the drug development process. By the end of the 10 weeks I hope I will still have the will to tackle such daunting courses as P. Chem or Cal 3.
In closing, however, here's hoping for a Celtic win tonight, a USA win tomorrow and an eventful weekend on the town.
