A Final Farewell

on May 8, 2015

Good morning, all! (or good whatever time it may be for you reading this!) This is a special time. On Friday, I defended my undergraduate honors thesis and, according to my committee, did exceedingly well. My academic career is pretty much wrapped up...


Hard Work Pays Off

on March 1, 2015

SPRING IS ALMOST HERE! Hallelujah! It’s been a while. I’ve been a little preoccupied so I apologize for keeping you all in suspense of recent events. How are you doing? I wish I could chat with you as I write this. An interactive blog. I guess...


One More Time

on January 14, 2015

Happy second semester! Well maybe not happy…more like bittersweet. I’ve enjoyed my holiday to say the least and even the end of last semester (although finals made that difficult). Oh, I’m 22! And, no, I am not feeling 22. I’ve heard that...


The Waiting Game

on November 16, 2014

Aloha! I hope everyone is enjoying themselves this fine week of November. As always, a lot has happened in the life of James Lioi and I’m not sure where to begin, so here goes nothing. I guess I’ll start with the fact that procrastination is an...


The First Last

on October 5, 2014

Hello, everyone! It’s been quite some time since my last blog but I will be sticking to a more regular schedule from here on out. Life has been crazy. Lately, I keep thinking to myself, “I want to do this, and this, and this - OH and this” to...


Three Down, One To Go.

on June 5, 2014

And a hello to all! It has been quite some time since my last post. A lot has happened (as always), and I wanted to wait until my life calmed down a bit before updating you on what I've been doing. I guess the first big piece of news is that I've...


St. Vincent's Legacy

on February 10, 2014

Hey, everyone! Well the new semester has kicked in and man is it snowy! I don't think I've ever experienced WNY similar to this winter. I can't count the times I've been stuck in my driveway, although I'm sure my roommates can, since they are the...


The First of Many More

on January 4, 2014

Hello, all! A happy holidays to everyone and welcome to the year of 2014, according to the Gregorian calendar! Break is soon coming to an end — I have three more days amongst my family and friends here in little ol' Canton, Ohio, until I travel to...


Giving Thanks

on November 19, 2013

Howdy, everyone! As always, a lot has been going on in the world of James Lioi. I attended the Rochester Academy of Science Paper Session a few weeks ago. This year, I presented a poster on the genomic analysis of Staphylococcus in relation to...


Round Three

on October 11, 2013

Round three. Junior year. It is almost surreal how my undergraduate career is already halfway over, but I have enjoyed every second of it. I may have said this before but writing this blog is very reflective for me. It gives me a chance to sit down...
