Remember that grant proposal I was freaking out about last week? I submitted it with plenty of time to spare and started on another one. The one I’m working on now is kind of a big deal. So far, things are going slowly because I’m so darn intimidated.
Luckily, the blog of Dr. Isis, the domestic and laboratory goddess is a confidence booster/kick-in-the-ass, especially her many advice columns. I think my absolute favorite post by Dr. Isis is Trampy Toys and What We Tell Our Daughters, but I also love her comments on the day to day life of a scientist who also happens to have a vagina.
