As far as science goes, this summer was a huge, massive waste of my time

I haven't learned anything worth knowing in the lab, and I don't even have the right protocols for relatively simple procedures. It's a little humiliating, actually. I don't even want to admit that I don't know what I'm doing whenever I do wet lab work since it's been so long and everyone else has learned their shit that it's embarassing for me to not have learned by now. Bleh! And I'm in the process of running this gel for the SECOND time since the first time my dna like... disappeared. I just want to get home to a place where I only feel mild embarassment when I ask Matt how to do something.
