Counting Blessings

I almost forgot about this little journal. Time to get back to it.

It took almost a year and a half after college graduation, but The Eldest finally landed her first dream job, and will actually put her biology degree to work.

She started yesterday as a lab tech at a community college. She'll be responsible for cleaning glassware, setting up labs, preparing reagents, and cleaning the lab. She gets to wear a lab coat, and her new boss is ordering the lab techs surgical scrubs as the techs had complained that spills ruined clothing.

She's excited to finally have put a halt to the Catch-22 of needing 2 to 5 years lab experience for entry level jobs. The downside to the job is the hours are part-time, but hopefully it won't be long before a full time opportunity presents itself.

Next up, car shopping so she doesn't have to share my wheels.

Have a Happy Mole Day. That is celebrating Avogadro's Number 6.023x1023  and not the rodent.
