I don’t know why but I’m always somewhat stressed when doing cell culture stuff. Like, I’m afraid to hurt the cells.
Also, I talk to the cells. Call them ‘my pretties’. Put them to sleep in the incubator, double checking that it’s closed properly and they have enough CO2 and it’s warm enough.
Gosh, I get so attached to my cell cultures. I wouldn’t be able to handle an actual pet, it’d be too intense.
P.S. Sigh, I so need to start thinking about these posts before Sunday rolls around.
