This has been an eventful week for me, and a bit emotional but I won’t get into that. I am finding out a lot about people and learning to look at them objectively. Does that make sense? I have also discovered that I am growing. Yeah, how about that? I’ve been looking back at some mistakes I have made with very little or no urge at all to regret and want to take them back. Someone once said, ‘Live and let learn’. I think it was a movie, because I have serious grammar-related issues with that statement. It was definitely not something I read.

Lately, lab sessions have been very social, and frankly, lots of fun. I’d like to share an obscure poem semi-co-written (Oh, it’s more complicated than that!!) by two biochemists in the making… one of them being me. (Just in case that part wasn’t so obvious.)
Here’s to obscurity, because this poem does have a deeper meaning, though it may not seem like it.
I want earphones as big as speakers
That will send the musical tremors
Resounding, reverberating in my chest
Moving and swaying me.
I want lollipops that fall like rain
That give me a rush long enough
For three hours of crazy, wild dancing
Like insanely concentrated adrenalin shots
Yeah, that’d probably kill me.
I want a car like the passing clouds
To change colour like the weather
Light as a breeze, plus I’d need no fuel
I’d float away like magic fairy dust
And never get stuck in traffic.
I want to live large like a boulder
To shake the world when I roll
With a soft bed of moss on my side
To hear the whispering trees all day
And the secrets of the insects beneath me.

I happened upon this 4-legged insect on the strangest shaped spider web of all time!! I’m sorry for the obscurely taken shot… yeah, it happens to be my word of the day in all its forms!!
