Happy Holidays and Happy New Years!

Happy Holidays to all~ and HAPPY 2020! A new decade is here, and let's face it with confidence and a positive mindset! Do you guys have new year resolutions? I, (Anne), kinda gave up a couple of years ago, because I never seem to get it done by end of the year. But I am willing to try to set a goal for myself this year, academically as well as personally!

New Year is also a wonderful time of the year and the perfect time to wish everyone well. A New Year is like a blank book and the pen is in your hands. It is your chance to write a beautiful story for yourself! Every year-end marks a new beginning! I wish everyone a Happy New and Fulfilling Year of 2020 (and many years to come)

How was Winter Break so far? We hope it has been a great one! It didn't snow much other than the couple times before the winter solstice, but we heard more snow is coming since the real "winter" is here (January/ February?) Everyone in the lab is working hard this winter break and I hope everyone got to at least take some time off to relax before the semester starts again on 1/21/2020!

Be prepared for more snow and cold! Stay warm, everyone.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Two weeks ago we had our very first HOLIDAY PARTY! Thanks, Dr. Chen, for providing both pizza and sandwiches! I know, sadly we did not get TURKEY (you know, for Thanksgiving!)! Maybe next time! πŸ™‚
We all had a great time, getting to know each other. In the beginning we tried to search for music in youtube! We were wondering if there were actually any THanksgiving songs! Well, youtube did not dissapoint and we found another version of "baby shark" for Thanksgiving song. It did not last long before Ian changed it to Christmas songs πŸ˜›

Anne made white chocolate green tea matcha cookies and Jin brought a Korean rice drink (picture below) It was quite good, but beware of the rice in the bottom! Amazing how you can try different food in a diverse research group! πŸ™‚Dr Chen Giving a few words

Dr. Chen is giving a few words before the feast starts!
