St. Paul's time

St. Paul’s time

This week I’m being treated to an unusual contortion of time. Normally it either flies or crawls, but now I have a fleeting period where the hours crawl by.  My labwork is on a 10-day wait step, and only two of my grad courses even meet this week, so there is plenty of time in the day (finally!) to rest up, get over my cold, and lounge on my sofa reading Girl Genius and eating cookies. Even mad scientists need some downtime, alright?

V&A time

It ends Friday with the introduction of Physiology to our course list. Then next week all experimental heck breaks loose. Then we add our first straight medical class and enter exams. Really, it’s just going to spiral from there into insanity.

What’s worse, I can already hear the ticking.

Before that, however, I have a tidbit for you in addition to the photos above, both of which are from London this summer. (Really, all I need out of my weekends is unlimited admittance to the Pergamon, V&A, and all those other fabulous museums.) I’ve now ventured into Manhattan for art supplies and have a few new pieces in the sketch phase, but for the moment I hope you enjoy revisiting these guys:

Although I was finally able to hijack the library scanner for this, I no longer have editing software on my computer (yeah, yeah, I’ll go download gimp at some point). Apologies for the unmatted presentation here. It’ll get fixed eventually!
