Today was a sad day in lab. As the semester is approaching to a close, many changes are taking place.
The lab numbers are going from 4 grad students, 3 post doc's, 3 technicians and 2 undergrads, down to 1 post doc and 1 technician and a bunch of grad students. The result of which being that today was one of my best friend, Paul's last day.
The celebration of his last day was somewhat anti climactic, however, we went out for a friends birthday and had a good time nonetheless.
My main fear is that without the everyday exposure, my connection to Paul will fade which would be unfortunate because he has been a great friend over the 2.5 years I've been in BC. Hopefully this post will catch his attention and prevent that from happening.
I decided to write this post to congratulate him on moving on from the lab and wish him the best of luck in whatever he decides to do in the future.
See you soon Paul!
