Started lab since last week and these are the techniques I need to master before I head off for my attachment end of June. Anyways this post probably gonna bored many of you. :P Alright, but still gonna blog it for my own memories to safe keep. :)
So despite being in the lab these few days just to pick up the skills, I'm already like half dead. Lab is draining, very. :( But it's cool to like really experience what a lab life is like because it's really different from what I experienced during lab sessions. Now I don't even call those lab sessions 'lab work' at all. LOL! Although I have totally pushed research off my future career path, I still find it quite interesting and it feels like Narnia whenever I discovers something eh, interesting?
A little background on my lab, it focuses mainly on discovering drugs to target on signaling pathways that are up-regulated in tumorgenesis. In short, we work on cancer cells. So wherever in the lab you see signs like this:
Honestly I actually don't feel intimated, I think it's gonna cool. LOL! It's the kind of feeling when you see something new and extraordinary, I guess?
Have also been seeing many regents and etc. that I've only read it on the notes! LIKE A COOL~ lol! I'm a nerd I know I know! :P Oh and there's this cold room in our lab too, which I think it should be called 'freezing room' instead. Because it's freaking freezing point inside and we have to conduct some special experiments in it. I almost died inside, especially when I went in and out like 10 times just today. SO COLD!
Anyways, today we did western blotting (chiminology) and it took a freaking 8 long hours to do just part 1 of the protocol. I imagine the number of western blot I have to do for my project. :'( #candiewilldiedefinitelydie
Despite reaching home really late and tired, I still insist I want to cook! :D If only my FYP is in the kitchen not the lab, I'll be the happiest girl on Earth. :')
Because NTUC was having a sale for Nong Shim Ramen and so I bought 3 and ate them in one go. I'm going bald. :/
I only take ice-blended bubble tea, never a fan of the milk tea bubble tea itself.
Ok, I'll try not to blog too much on my lab life in case I bored you away. hahaha!
