i found out on friday that my first ever scientific manuscript has been accepted for publication in marine ecology progress series (a pretty prestigious journal for my first publication). well, accepted after revision. i picked up the reviews and letter from the editor (who happens to be ken heck, who all involved with the paper happen to know, and who happens to be on my committee) yesterday from anne's office. she tells me that i get first crack at the necessary revisions and the letter outlining why we're not making some of the suggested changes. so i'll be working on that over the next couple of days. i'm excited about it. i'm going to work on the revisions over the next couple of days so we can hurry and get it back to ken so it can be published asap. hooray for me.
ooh, speaking of ken, i'm meeting with him tomorrow morning at the sea lab, so i need to get cracking and plan exactly what i'm going to say to him. i also need to write down my summer research plan for thursday's committee meeting. i'm glad that the ball that is my graduate research is finally rolling somewhere.
