Entomologists know how to party
Our lab had an end-of-the-semester party last night. I came prepared with a kill jar, headlamp, and extra vials just in case. They weren’t needed, but I did catch a moth out by the porch light!
We even got a surprise call from our advisor, who is currently traveling through the southwest on sabbatical. It was a lot of fun to have most of the gang together, especially since many of them are graduating this year. Can’t some of them fail on purpose so they can hang around the lab longer? At lease we’re keeping a few for caterpillar rearing and other projects this summer!
We all survived the night, but unfortunately most of us still have some work to get through before we can truly celebrate the end of the school year. I have a take home final exam for molecular systematics that is going to take every ounce of energy and will power I have this weekend to complete. In fact, I should be working on it right now…
