DAY 245 | MONDAY
France - B. 🇫🇷
Back to “real” work today. After my week of training, with an amazing (not true) weather, I’m back to B. My weekend in N was super cool. We did a lot of thing with my cousins, never being bored! One of my cousin came back with me for the week so it’s really nice because when I’m back home she is here and we can spend the evening together. At the lab, I had to work and try to finalise my report. My lipids data are good qualitatively speaking but I had issues with my internal standard so the quantities aren’t correct. It’s difficult to analyse everything so I went to see F to talk with her about it. She helped me a lot trying to cheer me up with my ununderstandable data. Oh and I went to the babies too. I left them a week ago and I was quite worried about how they will grow when I was away. My Spanish colleague took care of them last Friday and she did really well! They were okay even quite good in fact! Tiochy and Caps are in a nice shape. I transplanted Milia too. So yeah, to summarise everything, it was a classical comeback to work day that ended by being quite busy!
Happy Monday everyone 🙋🏻
Make Mondays count, it will set you up for a much more positive, productive and happy week.🙃 Set your goals and smash them. We got this! 💪🏼
I plan to finish this discussion for a thesis results chapter. What do you want to achieve this week?👇🏼

He estado en Ecuador hace tres días. Mis nuevos anfitriones son micólogos, y tengo muchas ganas de aprender de ellos durante este próximo mes. Esta mañana, Andrés me mostró el invernadero donde cultivan los hongos. Las especies con las que trabajamos son la ostra rey, la ostra rosada, la ostra blanca, la ostra azul, shiitake, y reishi.
Me alegro de que pueda usar mi título de la universidad. Los estudiantes se aburren de los laboratorios que no tienen "resultados reales". Pero cuando trabajas realmente en un laboratorio creando el substrato para el micelio, la cual se crecerá en algo comestible, medicinal, y vendible, las técnicas del laboratorio de biología se quedan más fascinantes. **********
I've been in Ecuador for three days now. My new hosts are mycologists, and I'm really looking forward to learning from them for the next month. This morning, Andrés showed me the greenhouse where the fungi are cultivated. The species we mainly work with are the King Oyster, Pink Oyster, White Oyster, Blue Oyster, Shiitake, and Reishi.
What I'm really happy about in this work exchange is that I get to use my college degree. Students get bored in labs that don't have "real results". But when you're actually working in a lab creating substrate for mycelium to grow into edible, medicinal, and sellable results, biological lab techniques become so much more exciting.
