Photo Friday: On The Business End

This is the last day of classes! Barring two final exams at the end of next week, I have survived my first semester of graduate school! But in classic fashion, as soon as there is something to celebrate, something else goes wrong…

I walked into the office at 7 this morning to get some work done before everyone else got here. I have a 20-minute presentation due today, so when I went to do a final check before submission, I found that the audio recording did not save. Only static. *Beats head on desk, Palm to face*

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.

On the bright side, I really enjoyed some work away from the desk yesterday. I joined a few of my fellow repro phys graduate students to flush embryos from cows. Then we transferred these fresh embryos to recipient cows and froze the extras. After I finish with classes, I have a series put together to explain many of the reproduction management techniques we use with cattle. So feel free to ask your questions in the comments below so I can be sure to answer them in later posts. For now here’s a few shots from my day (Thanks to Jessy for the photos!)

And really, how can ya beat this office view?

Now back to the grind…
