Hi loves! It’s been a whirlwind couple of months, and I wanted to start off fresh by telling you what’s been going on in our lives. As you may know, I was finishing up my PhD in biomedical engineering in December. The two months leading up to my defense presentation were very chaotic – not only was I working long hours to accomplish all the experiments I needed, plus writing the actual thesis document, but my husband and I were also organizing a move to the metro DC area. Though we weren’t necessarily looking to make a big move, a series of serendipitous events led us to decide to go for it. Fast forward three months and we have both graduated with our degrees (Juan got his Masters in CS!), relocated to the metro DC area with our precious cats, and (mostly) set up our new place which we absolutely love. We have either started, or will be starting new jobs, and overall, like it here so far!
