Am I the only one who gets extremely nervous sending emails to potential advisors? I've been reading this professor's work for years so emailing her caused my anxiety to go through the roof lol

    I was more excited than anxious to receive a reply from POIs, especially in my later emails. Idk, I'm used to emailing professors at my university. I didn't think this was too much different in terms of language snd structure.

    Ha! Lucky you. Unfortunately for me, my current PI sends me selfies while on vacation, so I'm a little out of practice when it comes to formal introductions...

rule of thumb to company paid meals. pick the second or third most expensive thing on the menu so you can get the best meal without looking like a douchebag

    I went to two new groups over the course of the three weeks I've been here. I even went to the first group a second time. Problem is, it's painfully awkward. I am very social and enjoy meeting new people, but it seems like the new people aren't as open to new-comers. Only a few will introduce themselves, most don't want to have a conversation with the new girl, etc. It's awkward and uncomfortable, but I'm still getting out there and trying to make it work.

    It's difficult, but NOLA is a big city, so you'll meet someone who understands your awkward soon.

    Maybe I'm weird, but I like being an adult way more than I liked being a teenager. Decisions carry more weight now, but life is way less stressful otherwise.
