I got a job!
Well, sort of. It doesn't pay, but it's a job in a lab that studies spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis. I met the P.I.s today and some of the people who work in the lab, and they are all awesome! (And really, the no pay thing isn't that big of a deal, since I'm baby-sitting in the afternoons, and living with my brother's family means I don't have to pay rent.)
I start in January, and I am so excited!
