Hurrah for Office-space

Today, I got introduced to my new office. It's actually more like a broomcloset that houses two post-docs and a graduate student (me), but it already feels like home. I have to go to university surplus supplies to scrounge up an old used desk and a chair with (hopefully) not too many ambiguous brown stains, but I have a bookcase and cabinets. My mentor also gave me the textbook I will use (Kandell's principles of Neuro Science) for the minimal coursework that I need to get done.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recognizes that same-sex marriage can be an emotional and divisive issue. However, the Church teaches that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is the basic unit of society. Yesterday’s California Supreme Court decision is unfortunate.
