First, huge congratulations to the amazing Stuart Robbins, who kicked butt at his dissertation defense and is now… Dr. Robbins! YAY STUART!
In personal squee news, I just found out I won one of the department research awards! So I get money to go toward my BBCP project, which at this point I think will be going toward big girl scientist grain size analysis, which involves – rather than a microscope or screens – a very fun-sounding piece of equipment called the Mastersizer. (No, really.) YAY GRAIN SIZE!
And tomorrow is the Colorado State Science Fair, so I will be up in Fort Collins all day looking at the projects of budding young scientists. I even get to be the co-captain of the Earth Sciences junior division team. YAY SCIENCE!
