Hang in there. I'm working on getting that bachelors and getting into that grad program so I can someday help understand why human beings age. Hang in there. The human genome is well on its way to being fully sequenced. Hang in there. Aging has to have a big genetic component because each species ages at its own rate. Hang in there. Recently, they've knocked out a gene in worm called Caenorhibdis Elegans, making it age at half the normal rate. Far cry from a person, but gotta start small. Hang in there. People my age romanticize and idealize aging, but I did my own informal anonymous little phone survey once, and guess what? Lots of people would like to be my age again and stay that way. Hang in there. My parents are aging, nevermind my parents, people I actually like are aging, so speed is of the essence. I'm working as fast as I can. Hopefully I'm not the only one. Hang in there. I hope saying hang in there doesn't sound patronizing. This is what I really think. It the one most cherished belief this agnostic has. Hang in there. If there's anything our times have taught us, it's that the first step to making something possible to to believe that it's possible. Hang in there. Joke about being an old lady all you want, but don't start believing it. Remain active, keep trying new things, maintain a positive outlook. The fact that you're here implies that you already are. Some very interesting things are on the verge of happening. Hang in there.
