Annoying columns every time I have to work.
Anonymous asked: How did you first get involved with research?
The undergraduate research program at my school (College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University) is incredible. My freshman year here I heard of the research program and wanted to get involved (doesn’t research sound cool?!) so I applied. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the position my first year, but I was encouraged to apply (and accepted!) to a job working in the department developing labs for the new curriculum.
My second year, I applied again. I was accepted into the program, and “contracted” for two years. I’ve already completed one 400-hour summer and a semester of research, and looking forward to the next, where I’ll take on a younger researcher who was in the same position I was last year!
Every year we hear the same stories about the narcotic effects of eating too much turkey and therefore tryptophan, which will put us to sleep before the pies are brought out. But many foods have tryptophan and even cheddar cheese has more tryptophan than turkey!
Here’s something interesting for you guys today.
Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Thank you! :) Makes me feel awesome since I’m laying on my couch with a cold.
For those of you that would prefer a version not with my face :)
