Since I’ve gone over a week without any blogging, I feel that I owe my readers an explanation. Basically, I’ve just been incredibly busy in the lab. I’ve had a lot of time on the NMR machines, and I’ve been trying to make the most of it. On top of that, and in addition to my other work around the lab, I’ve been filling in the gaps between expermiments with quite a bit of thinking and reading of the literature (instead of blogging), trying to determine the future direction of my Ph.D. project. This week looks like it’s going to be more of the same, but hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze in some blogging between everything else.
