So I am not the most dedicated person to be writing a blog. And I highly doubt that this attempt will be any different (maybe?). Rather than write about what's new (*ahem* dissertation writing), I will post some pictures that summarize the last 7 years of graduate school. It's always good (but not necessary) to start in the beginning...so here we go- the year 2008, my first year of graduate school at Utah State University. This year also marked my tenure as biological science technician with the USDA-ARS Pollinating Insects Research Unit.
