In and about… Lafayette

posted in Ioana Marin

Ciao! I was reading though the posts of my fellow bloggers for Voices and got this melancholic feeling: summer’s (almost) over… Not that I hadn’t known that before, but it’s different when it’s acknowledged by a group of people. Now… how I spent my summer (or most of it) is already documented. What happened since […]

Pray that the road is long. That the summer mornings are many…

Hey y’all, I’m back at Laf! Sorry this update is kind of late, but it’s been busy: my last week(s) in Shreveport and settling back here. But in any case, let me get to the point… I finished my summer research. It ended fast, fast-paced, and suddenly. My last couple of weeks were very busy […]

Peace love research

Hey folks, I know it’s been a while since I last updated, but if you were around me I’m sure you’d understand. If you haven’t guessed already, it has to do with the fact that I’ve been spending most of my time in the lab – I usually don’t get home until 6 or 7 […]

In the Summertime

posted in Ioana Marin

Hello! Hello! Here I am back with a new post from my temporary summer residence in Shreveport, LA :). Four weeks of my program completed, I cannot but keep wondering: how does time just fly like this? I’m realizing the time for me to complete my project and hopefully get meaningful (perhaps publishable) results is […]

From the lab

Yellow! In case you didn’t figure out already, that means hello in a happy fashion, especially inspired by the summer mood – and of course, there is plenty of yellow sun down here in Louisiana where I still am. When I got here, Dr. Schrott told me: “it’s mostly hot and sunny and every five […]

Senior Week, Graduation, and After

posted in Ioana Marin

Hey all, As promised, here is a bit about senior week and graduation. I can tell you the conclusion right now: I will miss the seniors/ grads. But, there is more to my post than the conclusion. Let’s see… Senior week was a week of fun, memories, partying, and friendship. During senior week, the college […]

Overall

posted in Ioana Marin

Heya! Finals week is over. My junior year is also over. And so are the all nighters for this year. I’m happy. Junior year was intense. I know I use this word a lot to refer to it, but it is so. It started so with my semester abroad in UCL, London. While many times […]

Hey All, Happy Monday of Finals Week! (Though I should probably say Tuesday.) It’s a busy busy time for everyone around here: students are frantically trying to finish assignments and exam preparations and professors finally get down to grading. The library is open 24 hours – what a joy! Yesterday (Sunday) it opened again for […]

Happy Lazy Sunday

Hello! Hello! (This is not Nat King Cole) It’s me again! It’s a rainy lazy day at Lafayette and I’m listening to Smile, by Nat King Cole 🙂 It’s one of those days when you enjoy sitting on the bed, still covered in blanket and writing a good blog post 😛 It’s been an intense […]
