Friday Fun: Adventures in Small Business

This has been a looooong week.

I often modify tweets with hashtags #startup or #phdlife, to give readers a flavor for just how chaotic, random, stressful, yet strangely rewarding life at a small company can be. This week, though, takes the cake - here's a brief breakdown of the last four days:
  • Haggled with Enterprise Rent-a-Car; planned an equipment-gathering "road trip"
  • Set up safety training
  • Toured a now-defunct medium biotech for info on soon-to-be-auctioned assets
  • Arranged for large instrument crating and cross-country shipping
  • Year-end software updates
  • Convincing colleagues, granting agencies, and local gov't that, yes, we really are that small
  • Scheduled an electrician to hook up (large, heavy) new toy
  • Writing, writing, and more writing
Reflection. Seemed apt.
Oh, almost forgot to mention: chemistry.

Happy Friday,
SAO
