      I don’t really see research as work because I’m having so much fun in the lab! But yes, I do think about research almost all the time- on the way home, during mealtimes, even in the shower! And ideas sometimes come to me at the weirdest times! Of course, I do take breaks from all this science. When I’m not doing experiments and thinking about my project, I like to relax by surfing the internet (YouTube is great!) and watching tv.

      Sometimes! Some studies I do require samples to be taken from experiments every single day for 3 weeks. But like Daphne, it’s fun so I don’t mind too much.
