Welcome to Caitlin’s Corner!

Just some humble musings on science, life in the lab, and life in general.

Restaurantđź‘ŹReviewđź‘ŹIII

Along with a little dive into beef types and quality! School has been tough this past semester, tough for students, tough for profs, and tough for TAs. So it was with much, much, pleasure that Joe and I were invited to try Miga Korean BBQ by Kei as a thanks for helping him to TA…

3 Areas of Focus for Improving Online Learning

While we’re probably best friends with Zoom now that the schooling landscape has changed, we may still be strangers to effective online learning. Things have seemed to progress way faster than we’re used to, and we may feel left behind in the dust. But it’s not too late to learn some skills that we can…

Today on Caitlin’s Corner we visit a local Korean shabu shabu restaurant. What is shabu shabu? It’s hot pot! Shabu shabu is the Japanese term for thinly sliced meat and vegetables served in a boiling pot of broth at your table (and the word is an onomatopoeia, ‘shabu-shabu~’ like the bubbling pot!). Today’s restaurant is…
