*Head Emerges from Hole...Puzzled at World Around*
First post on here in over a year. Where has the time gone?
I knew joining grad school would keep me busy, but to say that I underestimated the intensity of the transition would be putting it (laughably) mildly. Not that it's been hard necessarily...

Anywho, back to work. Hopefully I can get this research proposal for my single-molecule biophysics course wrapped up soon. Just please don't make me read anymore b...
