Timeline to graduation

There is so much to do between now and graduation. I feel like I have procrastinated so much. I am running markers right now in Dr. Menz's lab along with Stella and Nilesh. Things are working I just am frustrated with the politics of it all. That is all I dare say here, but if you want all the juicy details email me and I will give them all to you. I just wish we could all get along.

I got a JOB OFFER from Ag Alumni Seed!!!! They are a small popcorn breeding company owned by the alumni association of Purdue. They licence all of the wheat, soybean, and corn lines released by the Purdue breeders as well as their own popcorn lines. Their biggest competitors are ConAgra, a behemoth of a company, and Weaver, a local company. They are in Indiana, just outside of Lafayette, about an hour from Indianapolis. They are offering not bad pay with pretty good benefits. The town is nice, the company is small with good people working there. I feel like I could learn a lot from Max Robbins, the breeder. I think I could feel at home there. The negatives are that it is far from a temple about two and a half hours to Chicago, IL. It also doesn't involve teaching or will pay as much as some jobs, ie Bayer.

Well, back to work.
