Honestly, I’ve trying to bring back my annual Birthday post. The concept of which is to make a list of events that have occurred in the past year. And the number of items in that list has to equate to my age. This way, each year, I’ll be motivated to try more and more new things. :3 (and simultaneously giving away my age. lolwtf…)
In 2009, there was Kouda Entry_128: 22 things
In 2010, there was Kouda Entry_188: 23 things
In 2011, there was Kouda Entry_226: 24 things
I’ve missed 2 entries (2012 and 2013) due to my studies. But, I did my best to make sure the 2014 birthday entry happens (albeit a little later than it was supposed to be. Huehue.)
And so, here’s 27 recollections of the past year (2013-2014)…
1> Generated resistant strains for my research.
2> Got a new marshmellow of a nephew (Zubair)
3> IIDEX 2013: Gold medal
4> IIDEX 2013: Best Poster Award
5> Bioinnovation 2013: Bronze
6> Converted from MSc to PhD
7> iPoPS 2013: Best Oral Presenter
8> Got my wisdom tooth removed (after I developed an ulcer from it's incessant scraping on my inner cheek)
9> Started jogging (“Zombies! Run!” app)
