Somehow, today I managed to change the reaction column in our GC and get a grant written. These are 2 things that needed to happen TODAY before my Advisor leaves for his wild and crazy spring break sampling rampage in Cali, and magically, they happened!
Changing the column took a little longer than I thought...mostly because I have no sense of left/right which is important when you're tightening/loosening nuts and bolts, and also because these fused sillica columns are delicate and I was terrified of breaking this thing I just spend $500 ordering.
And the grant! I finally got through this one sticky part I was having trouble with, and even got a prompt response back on a formatting question from the organizer.
And tonight I have a date with RunRaven to see John Carter!!
I don't know how it happened, but some how shit is actually getting accomplished. Magic!
