First day as a postdoc today…it was tough. I spent 230 minutes in the car today. I was listening to The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks which made it much more bearable. I also have my own (windowless) office. And everyone in the lab seems great. Smart and competent and nice.
But I missed Maya. I hate pumping. I don’t know if it’s inappropriate somehow to have milk out on my desk? Should I keep my door shut with a “do not disturb” sign until I have it safely hidden away? I have no idea.
I hope this job is worth it. I hope this project is worth it.
My little baby is sleeping next to me and my heart is swollen and overflowing with love for her.
