Although starting tomorrow is the holiday, we still had to finish out work. Today was the third and also the last day of the lab. We finally got our results and were ready to view them under fluorescent light. When I took out my plates, I realized that my results were not ideal. There were supposed to be colonies on specific plates, but instead, I had colonies on the plates that were supposed to be no colonies. Maybe I did something wrong in the process. Fortunately, I did see a lot of glowing colonies under the ultraviolet light, and that was so cool. Next week, we will be identifying the type of plasmids in the cells by using restriction enzymes to cut the DNA into parts.
Since I had an easy afternoon, I went to shop at the Brown bookstore. I was looking for suitable gifts for people around me, and I saw this brown cup that I really liked. Unfortunately, most of the items were overpriced, so I still did not decide what to buy yet.

While having these interesting conversations, I had a meal that made me so full. The appetizers were simply fresh. Lobsters, shrimps, crabs, and oysters made a really refreshing start. An accident happened. The big plate slipped in front of me. I was shocked for a second, but I was glad that no one was hurt and nothing broke. Then, I had the super rich lobster soup. Next, the entree, I had Filet Oscar, which was a combination of steak and lobster. The steak was medium rare and the lobster meat was on the top of the steak. This was the first time I had this kind of combination, but it was nice. Land plus sea was perfection. Last but not the least, the dessert was finally on. I ordered Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake. There was only one work to describe it, and that was amazing. As a dark chocolate lover, that was my favorite taste. When I put the first little piece of cake into my mouth, the cake melted, and I really enjoyed the bittersweet taste. Although I was already really full, I still managed to finish it because it was too awesome. Then Kisa started to "compliment" my good appetite, and that was pretty embarrassing, but in a good way.
