Default Hi! I'm Cashew :)

Aloha

I'm Cashew, and I'm from Canada. I've been playing on the US server for about a month, but a bunch of my friends and I decided we wanted to play on the UK servers. So here I am!

I'm currently doing my Ph.D. in Biology (in fungal ecology...so the fact that the currency of this game is in mushrooms is awesome), and I teach at the University I attend.

In game, I kill things with sparkly stuff. Go me!

Edit: to show sig

He Cashew!

I'm in Canada too (Edmonton), but I'm from the UK originally... I'm also on the US server.

Good to have you on board, the UK forum needs all the voices it can get right now so encourage your friends to join to.

Thanks for the welcome!

One of the members of my guild has joined the forums already, I'll see what I can do about roping the rest of them into making forum accounts, too. Oh, and I like talking so I'll be yammering away on the forums (even if I'm just talking to myself ). Yay for activity!

A Newfie! Awesome Some of the research in my lab is done in Newfieland. I haven't been lucky enough to be shipped off there, yet

Yay for posting! As long as it's "off-topic", I'm golden. I have a rough time staying on any kind of topic. I guess I'm forum ADD

Welcome!

You could write your thesis on our here. Why did you choose this topic? Do you love mushrooms or was it just some sort of topic you've already read and had enough articles and books about?

I actually had zero experience with any technique that I use to gather or analyze data for my thesis. It's kind of a long story of how I got into it, but here's the "in a nutshell" version:

During my undergrad, I had no idea what I wanted to to. Well, I wanted to be a doctor, but I didn't have the grades to get into med school. So I needed another job aspiration. I decided I wanted to be a teacher. Applied to a bunch of teacher's colleges, got interviews at every single one, then obviously was craptastic during the interviews because I didn't get in anywhere I applied. SO! I needed something else to do. I went back to my hometown, and started looking into grad school. I was looking at faculty websites of potential supervisors, and found this one guy that did caterpillar research in Costa Rica. If I had of read further down his website I would have seen that most of his research is in Canada and the US, but the words "Costa Rica" had me hooked and I wanted to go. I sent him an e-mail asking if I could meet with him about grad student opportunities in his lab, we clicked, and here I am. All of my research is in the same city that I've lived in my whole life (and I live in my parents' basement. lol), I have yet to set foot in Costa Rica, I don't work with caterpillars, but I LOVE what I do. It's a little odd, a little random, but fun (...to me at least)
