Once upon a time there was this chick named Staci.
She moved away to pursue her Masters in Biology
She found out that she really loved the field of vector biology. And that her project was much much MUCH bigger than either she or her advisor could have anticipated.
So in January 2016, she took a chance and applied to bypass a Masters completely and move straight into the Ph.D. program.
Because that couldn't go wrong, right?
But she successfully did it. Starting Fall 2016, she will officially be a doctoral student of Biology.
Life has been a struggle. And busy. But still alive.
She misses her friends from this site. And hopes they are doing well.
She hopes to visit more often.
She hopes that school won't kill her or her dreams, small as they may be.
She hopes that this journal update will end soon so that she doesn't ramble more than need be.
She won't bore you with the details of her life since her last update.
But she wants you to know she's ok. Or at least alive. And misses you all; those that may care or are still around, that is.
Did she live happily ever after?
