So, the original plan for me was to leave on the 8th of January to do some pathology work in Tamworth. It looks like that isn't going to end up working out. It was a little disappointing at the time, however, it seems like it may have turned into a blessing.
I now have more time to finish things up in Canada. Immunizations are turning into a bit more of a pain than I thought (the nurse made a comment along the lines of "so typical of men to leave it til this late...") haha. I also get to spend more time with my family, spend more time in the lab to finish some experiments for future manuscript submissions/finish writing code and, in turn, to save up more money.
The only pain? Airlines... grrrr!
Anyways, I'm doing well and getting excited for Australia. It was -25* Celsius here today... ouch. Can't wait for the sun!
Oh, and by the way, I will be leaving on the 25th of January now.
