It’s weird the things you forget.
I used to know where everything in the lab was. Pipettes, tin foil, flasks–you name it. Someone has done some serious redecorating and it feels a little strange. I’ll go straight to where I thought the concentrated hydrochloric acid used to be kept… and it’ll no longer be there.
Despite all of that, it feels really satisfying to be back. The work last year was always stimulating, and this year promises to be no different. A lot of the things I was working on last year are coming to fruition more and we’ll get to see where they go.
Really, it just feels right to be back. It’s almost like I never left.
