Weeks 13 and 14: Goals and Projects

November 11, 2016  | Blog Post

“Why would you want to be a nail technician?” Someone asked me this question with a puzzled look on his face. “Why would you, being a chemist, even want to go do something like that?” He asked me that question as if to say that I was lowering my standards to become a nail technician. I explained to him my reasons for wanting to do this and the goals that I have.
