Glasgow, Scotland, taken on February 13, 2017
It is not the first time I am posting a photo of this tree outside my office, and I gotta say it’s my favourite tree on campus. For the past two years, I noticed flowers beginning to bloom in February or March but this year, they were already blooming by late January. It gives me joy seeing this tree as I walk by and enter my office building, especially since the usual Glasgow rainy season has been relatively rain-free thus far. Spring is coming, or has it already arrived? 😉
I’ve always loved the “Giant Microbes” toy series, and our lab decided to get some…as our mascots? Makes sense as we are a bio lab, after all, and here is one of a giant E. coli. It’s harmless, I promise!
The fact that I am surrounded by such beautiful architecture every day still amazes me. I feel so lucky to be working on such an elegant campus.
The sculpture at the corner of the room always makes me feel strangely paranoid whenever I attend the lab meeting in this room. He must be watching me…and every one of us!
I’ve moved to my new flat! After having arrived in Glasgow for almost a month and a half, I’m finally all unpacked and settled. The new place is cozy and warm and I am looking forward to decorating it and inviting lots of friends over 🙂
