Nora Novak knows cuttlefish.

Actually, Nora knows a lot of species. She can name every shark, whale, eel, and Ohioian turtle (among others).

She's not as committed with humans.

But she's only been in her lab for a little over a decade. How much could she have missed?

As she's wrapping up her postdoc, Nora's carefully-balanced ecosystem is in crisis. Her maze-navigating cuttlefish are retiring. Polyester shorts are no longer "in." Somewhere along the line, she forgot to learn how to date.

So Nora does what any self-actualizing biologist in her early thirties would. Nora Novak embraces the #FOMO.
