Dec 11, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: New Horizon

Bordeaux, France, taken on May 18, 2012

With a new year comes a new horizon and new hope. I’m currently on holiday and have forgotten everything about work with the intention to empty my brain and start afresh in 2017. As a researcher, my job is to publish papers and that would have to be my top priority in the upcoming year, before my contract expires. I’m going to have to push myself and get those manuscripts written and published, and it’s not going to be easy!

Two years in the MiMe research and lab and many things still continue to amuse me.

Of course it may just be a labmate’s epiphanies scribbled on the glass hood, but worth a thought? 😉
