I attend a lot of seminars as a grad student. Most of these include free food, which is both a blessing and a curse. A typical week for me:
|Monday||No seminars on Mondays, ever. Get lunch from the taco truck which parks just outside my window.|
|Tuesday||Bourne Journal Club. Papa John’s sausage & pepperoni pizza.|
|Wednesday||Mass spec seminar. Papa John’s sausage & pepperoni pizza.|
|Thursday||Bioinformatics seminar. Papa John’s sausage & pepperoni pizza, cookies, or faculty lunch (depends on week).|
|Friday||Pevzner Journal Club. Costco sandwiches. Usually free beer at a happy hour (CS, BMS, Pharmacy, or our lab, depending on week).|
Not exactly balanced, but it’s difficult to say no to free food!
