Worth trying again…

So posting about all my interviews didn’t work out so great.

Turns out in the end, got into Yale, Penn, Baylor, and Duke, and decided to (well, God told me to) go to Yale.

But I really do need to get better at this so I can share my life in New Haven with my beloved Grace and Wolfpack family in Raleigh. Cause ya’ll rock my world.

The transition is starting to be very real…I’m realizing I’m…

an adult.

Yes, an adult. As in, I bought a bed and was excited that Hecht’s had sheets on sale. It’s no longer odd that my friends are getting married and having kids. And the scariest part of this realization is

We are largely already who we are going to be.

I’m NOT saying that people don’t change. After all, “And I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again (Phillipians 1:6, NLT).” And Paul knows his stuff. It’s just that since I was a little girl I had these ideas about what I’d do and who I’d be and the time for those things is upon us. I always thought I’d enjoy going to see plays when I grew up. Why not start this weekend finding something to go to? I always thought I’d read a lot and be very thoughtful. Hum…what was the last thing I read for the sake of reading?

About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
