2012: Most Popular Posts on Bunsen Burner Bakery

2012 was a huge year around here!

I finished my Ph.D.!  It’s official — Dr. Julie!  And with the end of my indentured servitude to my grad school lab came a move from D.C. to Philadelphia to start in a new lab for my postdoc research.  After many years of long distance marriage, my husband and I are living together again (…for 6 more months, until he moves for fellowship in July…).

We bought a house! With air conditioning in the kitchen!  And we just adopted a dog!

It’s been a big year of changes.

These really big changes also explain my (long) absence over the past 6 months – our life has been boxes and moving and unpacking and adjusting.

But hopefully I’ll start blogging again soon.

And in the meantime, I couldn’t resist popping back in for another annual update of my most popular posts of the year.

What can I say — as a scientist, I’m a data nerd!
