Diversifying my eggs

Feeling very sleeping.. it's now 4am in the morning.. Drank a can of Bourbon & cola... but not totally groggy yet..=)

Anyway, I had spoken to Rick already, and I will still be working on to elucidate the nucleic acid binding proteins that regulate the RNA helicase. However, I will be doing other projects concurrently as well. I think this is pretty good, in that I'm not putting all the eggs in one basket! So, I think I will be handling another 3 project simultaneously, and hopefully, at least one of them will lead me somewhere!

Basically, I will be working on tata box-binding proteins, the RNA helicase, as well as a very basic protein that is expressed by the archaea... wow.. I foresee this is gog to take up a lot of work and time.. gotta work extra hard!

I was taken aback during the meeting, cos Rick was telling me that he had come up with a long list of what other projects I can embark on after reading my email. At least this shows that he really care about his students and make an effort to come up with the list. He could have jolly well just think up of something during the meeting, or asked me to go think about it... and for that I'm in a way, touched... and am fortunate enough to have such a good PhD supervisor.. though I already more or less have, in my mind, what other project I intend to do as well...

Anyway, let's hope that things will turn for the better! =)
