Six random facts meme

Thanks to ScientistMother for the tag. And now six random facts about ScienceMama.

1. I am still in close contact with every single one of my friends from high school. It makes me very happy.

2. I am happier when I exercise on a regular basis. I am not currently exercising on a regular basis. My favorite jeans tell me this is a problem.

3. I have not had a haircut since last December. My split ends tell me this is a problem.

4. Husband and I met while working in the same lab. I am on one of his papers.

5. I used to suffer from chronic migraines. I have only had one since I got pregnant with Bean.

6. I work fewer hours in lab as a postdoc (and mother) than I ever did as a graduate student. I try not to feel like a terrible person. It doesn't always work.

I met my husband while working in the same lab too :) Although I'd be surprised if we ever published together.

I just had to put my gym membership on hold due to my foot injury and it's killing me slowly.

Oooh! I had regular migranes, and had my last one when I stopped breastfeeding. None since!
I thought it was just me.

Fewer hours, bah! I'm sure you put in enough. I've gotten by my whole career so far on 40-45 hours at work per week. You are about quality, Science Mama, not quantity! :)

I don't think I have every told you what a truly awesome person you are and how inspiring you are to the rest of us. Your wit, humor, grace and beauty shine out from wherever you are, though I do wish you were closer to SF!

I also met my husband while working in the same lab.... I'm in the acknowledgments for one of the papers, but not co-authored.
And I wouldn't worry about the number of hours. As others said, it's quality over quantity. I bet you're a lot more focused and don't do things like regularly take long lunch/coffee breaks because you know that bean is waiting for you to be finished on time and come pick her up. I'm sure you're doing just fine.

I'm so impressed that you still keep in contact all your high school friends!

And don't feel guilty about the work hours. You're probably waaay more efficient than those seeming gunners who "work" till 10 pm but fritter away hours playing computer games and socializing.

Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening.
I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this information together.
I once again find myself personally spending
a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
But so what, it was still worth it!

Very good blog you have here but I was wondering if
you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same
topics talked about here? I'd really love to be a part of community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!

Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Bless you!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
