Without getting too much into the worky-worky goings-on, suffice to say that lately my job has been quite busy. I’ve got a lot of burners going, and I have a literal internal deadline to get some projects completed. Honestly, being busy is itself not that bad – neat results, fun science! – but it is weird when I am physically unable to do my experiments.
This is how pregnant ladies use an electron microscope: sit in another room and watch someone else collect all the data. Safety first!
