It’s summer!..and I’m feeling all summery

The summer has been great so far and I am trying not to walk too much while exploring more of the city. Stockholm is just so beautiful that it made me try bicycling after twenty long years just so I could go around the city and the different islands. Stockholm city bikes is a good initiative that lets you get a season card for 300 sek and a free helmet. Bicycling, kayaking, roof top hiking-I’m planning to do all these and much more. There’s just so much to do in this city that it might leave me almost penniless if I don’t really think about my bank balance and my generous dad being annoyed.

Work has been hectic. They have decided to give me a hefty stipend for the summer internship. I would still warn students who might be/are planning to do a summer thing at KI or any other uni, it’s still pretty tough to get a stipend/salary. I do know a few people (both swedish and international) who tried hard to look for a paid internship.  As I am helping a part-time PhD student with her analysis, there’s a lot to do. There are days I have to work from 8 am till 7 pm. But it’s still fun and challenging although I do get grumpy every now and then. There are also days of properly done experiments going wrong.  But what’s the fun of having that perfect ELISA result when you don’t get a few bad ones.

So I went for a walk...

Have a lovely summer and looking forward to meeting some of you this September!
