I (wait for it…)


Yes. The jumping picture was necessary.

You’re looking at Mucosis’ newest “General Lab & Quality Control Technician”! Mucosis is a small, fairly new company that is working to develop vaccines that can be administered through the nose, like a nasal spray, instead of your typical injection. They have one product they are working hard to get to clinical trials by 2016, and my job was created!

Basically, I’ll be taking care of all the general lab things like ordering, shipping, equipment maintenance etc. on top of helping out with the quality control assays to keep things moving towards clinical trials.

This has been much anticipated as I first interviewed for the job during the first week of July. I had a really good feeling about it then, but you just never know. Regardless, I’m excited to say I was offered the job on Wednesday, and while everyone in the States is enjoying their Labor Day holiday, on Monday I’ll be starting my first day of work!

To top off all this excitement we had a celebratory lunch today at a place I’ve been eyeballing since we arrived….

t’ Pannekoekschip!

It’s a ship in the canal where they serve nothing but pancakes.


Seriously, I love pancakes. And these aren’t just any pancakes. They are huge! Shane had a Greek pancake with ground lamb, feta cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes & tzatziki sauce. I went for your standard bacon and banana. Anyone who comes to visit us will absolutely go aboard ‘t Pannekoekschip matey! …that was bad. Sorry.

So, in summary. I am employed! AND I found 5 euro on the ground after we left t’ Pannekoekschip! AND it’s gameday!


Tot ziens!
