Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent - Marilyn Vos Savant
Woke up after 5 hours of sleep ( which is a lot comparatively ) , got to the lab, set up the experiment, risked frostbite and oxygen-displacement-induced suffocation and 6 hours later came the dreaded call to collect the remains of the sample. " Operation terminated " callously marked the cause of demise. It's been a week of sleepless nights, late dates, bonding and tough love, but as with all passionate affairs, this ended with a fizzle and black ash.
It's been a good run sweetheart, but some things just aren't meant to be. If fate allows, you'll bring me more joy, but Monday's simply not your day.
Gah, did I just write an obituary for my lab sample ? I need to get out more ... but I'm hitting "Enter" either way. Thank you for reading. Here goes !
