MicrofloraToday I’m writing an article that required me to figure out whether intestinal microflora was a synonym for bacteria in the gut. (It’s not exactly a synonym: microflora can include a number of microorganisms in the gut, including bacteria).

The article is actually a press release for a study in a scientific journal. My job is to read the technical articles and create readable articles for release to the general public. I had to audition to work for this group, and this was the first time I did a small project for free in order to prove I could handle the job.

Man but I love this. I get paid to learn, to explore, to think, to compile. Could life be much better?
