Puns in paper titles are great—this is the correct take because they make papers more memorable so don’t @ me—but I wonder if using terms from TV shows will age well?

Can I ask if you paid out of pocket or if your university paid? I know that’s rather personal, so feel free not to respond :)

Triple checking the data is good. Corrections are normal. Repeat and breathe.

Ditto! Getting counseling and starting antidepressants has helped SO much. Trying to remind my brain not to turn to anxiety at every little thing. ❤️

A super tiny act of self-love and self-care, I replaced the ball in my lower conch that had been missing for 6 months. It’s honestly a huge relief that it’s not something I have to worry about anymore. ❤️

Since whale qtips aren’t a thing, we can’t sample from a whale while alive. So we rely on partnerships with museums (like and ) for samples, + groovy colleagues who respond to present day stranding and get earwax for us that way. Sometimes involves a chainsaw.

We can age whales from their earwax, because it forms layers like tree growth rings :)

Hi y’all! I’m currently a 4th year PhD Candidate in Biology and I research the lives of whales using the hormones we find in their earwax. I want to improve the culture of STEM and grad school, so buds & I started Podcast. I also speak about my work incessantly ❤️

I make the point of telling people I’m smart in science but stupid in a lot of other areas (like car mechanics, what??)

Great advice here! We’d also recommend updating your CV once a month, so you don’t forget to add important things! Also, has many free CV templates using LaTeX that make it a breeze to have a visually appealing CV if you want. Example:
