Hi all !

Alright, I made my come back to the lab today, and now on my blog !

During my time off, my very first paper (which is actually a review) got published ! I could not have been more happy (and relieved, yes) !

I actually enjoyed this writing phase a lot, which I had not anticipated at all. Maybe that’s even why I finally started this blog.

Anyway, I saw yesterday a wonderful picture shared by a friend, and I will just pass it over here. It’s one of the most arty and sleek insect macro’s I ever saw …

This art piece is from Martin Amm, and you can find more beautiful ones over here : http://photo.net/photodb/member-photos?user_id=2109438

PI Quotes – 3 “If my son ever tells me he wants to be a scientist … “

Time for “PI Quote” number 3 …

I discussed here and there with my supervisor about making a career in academia, being a scientist, etc … So one day were I felt really good about everything, I told him that I definitely wanted to become a scientist !

I looked at mi with this half-happy/half-sad face, and said:

“If my son ever tells me he wants to be a scientist, I will slap him in the face !” 

I still think about here and there, and wonder if this was not the most blunt warning ever …

Actually, I still don’t know what to think about this …  I think no parent advices his kid to do the same job then him … or does it  happen ? What do you say ?
