So WD wanted me to try to start blogging although it still is hard for me to sit and write my personal life onto this website, but everyone seems to be addicted to it so it must be fun. I guess it is like a virtual journal anyway, so here is one of my first entries on our blog (albeit very brief). I went to a conference in Austin Texas this week about mineralized tissues (bone and teeth) and had a good time. It was a pretty nice place and was warmer than Atlanta in November. My adviser made a connection for me to visit an orthopedic biotech company located there and that was a neat opportunity. It is still too early to try to get jobs for me, but I was trying to start some early networking. I'm not sure that we used to think of ourselves as Texas people but if the right job comes I could go lots of places I suppose. We'll have to see.
Above is the hat that I brought home to Sawyer from Texas ("Texas" is a mouthful for Sawyer to say, I guess he is still a little rough on his "X" pronunciation). Anyway, YEEHAW! Look at that smile.
