This year, I'm just having one "year end" post - no more resolutions. This was my best year of blogging: I have a job that I love, doing interesting science, and unlike in grad school, my sweetie is with me. So on to the annual end-of-year meme!
Same rules as always: link to and list the first sentence of the first
post of every month. If the first sentence is an apology or an aside (bad habit, I know), then I skip that sentence and go on to the next.
Since it's the start of the new year, I figured I'd do some cleaning up.
Anne Jefferson sent out a call for posts that explain something complex using only the 1000 most commonly-used words in the English language.
I graduated from college and started looking for a job during a local ebb in the job market.
Ask a manager has a recent post requesting tips for young professionals attending their first conferences, and the post has a long list of good suggestions.
Janet Stemwedel has a new post up regarding the use of massive open online courses (MOOCs) in (replacing) university classes.
I had a lively (heated?) discussion with a bunch of other geologists a
while back about getting what you need from a drilling program.
I've been holding onto a couple of blogs that appear to be defunct, or which have officially ended.
When I was writing my last post about my blogiversary, I had two ways I wanted to look at this blog.
It's been more than a decade since I graduated from college, and I was wondering what everybody ended up doing.
The US government shutdown has impacted the environmental biz in a bunch of ways, some obvious and some not.
I have a ring that doesn't come off.
Logging samples involves a whole series of field tests and observations.
In case you're curious, all of my previous year-end memes are linked to last year's post. I was out last week because of holiday obligations/shenanigans, but I plan on posting somewhat regularly from here on out. Happy holidays, and have a safe new year!
