kromer 9:30 CI

I had a fantastically unproductive day yesterday...I think it was mostly because I was exhausted. I slept for 9 hours last night and today am feeling almost functional.

Today I need to:

Scheduled: Youth group 5:00-10:30

*Scary task: email admin about new computer. This is scary b/c I feel awkward asking the lab to buy me something. But it's a tool I really need to do my work.
*Bar graphs of expr changes of 2 pathways in mutant
*Finish retrieving 2 pathways
*Find some RA/somitogenesis papers

Other tasks:
*Start researching culture expts
*Research meiotic block
*Lit search on Shh pathway

I'm going to work for 30 min on retrieving pathways, then I'm going to compose and send scary email, then I'm going to work on bar graphs.

Update 10:20--composed and sent scary email. Did some work on retrieving pathways. I realize that my current method of retrieving pathways is really inefficient...I think it makes sense to dedicate a few hours to automate (as much as possible) the process on retrieving pathways. So I'm going to work on that now.

OK, so talked admin into buying me nice fast computer so I won't spend so much of my time waiting for stuff to run. yay! apparently it pays to be a bit pushy.

I've made some good progress on automating pathway retrieval process. However, the work I've done previously on XML processing is at home, and it doesn't make sense to re-invent the wheel. So this needs to be on hold until I can get that material (probably over the weekend)

So, right now I'll work on bar graphs of expr changes of the 2 pathways. This is a relatively straightforward task...should take an hour or two. Back when that's done. Once that's done, I'll find papers, then start work on my non-MITs.

Update 2:30: OK, figuring out how to get R jobs to run on the cluster is proving to be immensely frustrating. But I know I can do it! Will give myself 30 min more to work on this, if I'm still stuck I'll move on

Journey 9 am

Good morning!  I slept in a bit this morning as I stayed up late playing with my new toy, a sansa fuze mp3 player.   It's so cool, I love it.  It's much less expensive than an Ipod and you don't have to use that horrific Itunes.  I use Media Monkey (the free version). 

I did go to the gym, although I didn't get there in time for the spinning class I like to do on Fridays.  But anyway, I'm in the office, I've read email and checked my calendar, and I have coffee at my elbow. Now to make the todo list.

Yesterday was a very good day.   I got a lot done at work, and ran two errands on the way home.   Let's make today a good day too!
