I have been waiting to post anything new until something exciting happened. However, that does not seem to be in the plans for the future......So, here is what has been happening with us in the mundane, recent weeks.
Since Spring Break, it has been mostly studying for both John and me. He had a midterm in Neuroscience and Human Behavior and did excellent as usual. He got number 2. I on the other hand counted that I have 9 tests in the 8 weeks following Spring Break, so I am just looking forward to the end of finals.
We both have been spending quite a bit of our time on our respective research projects. John has a poster presentation on April 26 and 27. It is the National Student Research Forum and it will be held at UTMB. He is presenting based on his Sascin project from the summer. I have also be working on a poster presentation that will be held at the Pediatric Society of Research meeting in Toronto. Although my PI is presenting the data, I have been completing alot of the background data collection and analysis.
In other news, we signed the lease on the house we are going to rent today. We decided on the one close to UTMB. Our lease will start May 1, but we will probably move slowly over the month of May as we have a month of overlap. Here is the picture to refresh your memory: Other than that, I have been filling my spare time by trying to prepare new recipes often. Also, my running partner and I decided to train for a Triathlon in July. It should be an interesting challenge since I do not technically swim. Also, neither one of us have a bike. We want to do the one in Irving, TX. It is called the Iron Girl. It is short length Triathlon. I thought that a routine of swimming and biking would help the rehab on my knee.
As for John's spare time..... well there is none. I did coax him out of the house for an Easter meal out at Saltgrass this weekend. I do that occasionally so that he gets some fresh air, and so that I can have a date.
Well, here's to hoping something exciting happens in the next couple weeks. So long.
