Lauren. 24. On the fence about just about everything.
I’d been having an embarrassing amount of difficulty truly understanding the process of DNA replication, until a few nights ago, when I had a brain blast and started thinking of the 3’ ends as butts.
It just works so well with the 5’ end being a phosphate head, and it was really easy for me to envision little 3’ butts hanging off of the end of primers, waiting for DNA poly to roll up and hitch a friendly 5’ head onto them.
After that SO MUCH PROGRESS, so fast. It’s like a semester of genetics caught up to me (…not really and it makes me sad. But like half of last semester suddenly makes sense).
In less good news, the weekend-long field trip for my zoology and botany classes is cancelled. because only like 6 people out of 60 can commit to going. My anticipation for this event was starting to rival my anticipation for the start of OBS2 so I’m kinda let down. Was probably going to end up mis-scheduling myself out of going the full weekend anyway, though.
