lesson learned today

Today was a very bad day for me. I was literally start doing my first experiment. Yeah, I’ve started my research since last week, but today is the first day for me to treat my samples. And I made one stupid fatal mistake that affect all of the samples. It means, tomorrow I have to do it all over again. I feel really stupid and useless, you know.

I still can take a moral of the story from this kinda “incident”, though. I need to be really really really careful next time. I mustn’t lose concentration even only for a second. It’s been almost 2 years I didn’t do a real lab project, so it’s normal that I need to adjust myself again in the laboratory. I hope everything goes well tomorrow and the days after.

And you know what, when I went home this afternoon, there was people from Christian Society having an event near the sports centre. They gave cakes to people (including me) who were passing by. They stick a little paper that contain a line from the Bible, on top of each cake. Accidentally, on the cake that I took, there was this line.

The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit

I feel like,  that was God Himself who is trying to speak directly to me not to be afraid because He always be with me, even in my darkest time. This evening I also had a chit-chat with my friend. Apparently, she had a problem with her research as well. Then she told me this, “you know what, it’s better that you made mistake today rather than you make mistake later when you’ve gone that far with your research. at least, you learn something today.”

Okay then. This seems to be a quick post for me. I was down, honestly. But now I feel much better.
