Disgruntled Julie

Disgruntled Julie is a laboratory slave 6th year Ph.D. student studying pediatric cancer through biochemistry and biophysics. When she isn't in lab (never), she enjoys cooking, cleaning, crafting, and other domestic goddess type activities. When she is in lab (always), she spends her time attempting to purify seemingly non-purifiable proteins, determining the structure of unstructured proteins, fighting with the pH meter, and injecting mice with cancer. Disgruntled Julie survives by finding the humor in lab life, and rants accordingly.

Running has never been my thing (I'm more of an elliptical in a nice air-conditioned gym gal), so I guess that's why I'm such an easy target in meme-tagging. I've been tagged by Dr. Becca!

If you missed her original post, the general gist is to "sum up your blogging motivation, philosophy and experience in exactly 10 words".

Grad school sucks. Incompetency everywhere. Must vent to save sanity.

P.S. While we're talking about blogging philosophy, apparently there has been some confusion out there in the Internets about my "move." To clarify, I have not actually moved, and will still be retaining my original blog, so don't delete me from your RSS readers quite yet! Over there, you will continue (uh, when I have time) to find the trials and tribulations of grad school, occasional scientific success stories, tales of being the (long-distance) wife of a doctor, recipes, photos, etc, while my home here will be more of an expansion on my standard 140-character Twitter-based science rants. Because hey, if you can't manage to post regularly on one blog, the obvious choice is to have two!

Yes, the food will be revived on the other blog. I'm thinking "Savory Saturdays" and "Sunday Sweets".

Completely with you on the "Incompetency everywhere." I'd like to think that this would change after grad school.
