Today, more than ever before, it is official that I am a scientist. While it’s true that I’ve had a lab for coming up on a year, I attended my first grant workshop and bought my first lab coat. These two things are important for just as many reasons. 1. I need grant money to keep doing science 2. All the scientists on TV have labcoats
I know that #2 isn’t very scientific….but it was dirt cheap and I feel very special. Also, when the room gets chilly at night, the coat is just what I need to take the edge off.
