That awkward moment when it’s dead week, you’re really stressed, you want to write a blog post to get that stress out and reflect on things, and then your computer hard drive dies and you can’t write said blog post and are computer-less during the most important week of the semester. So, in the midst of all your frustrations pertaining to school, you go to the gym to destress (as per usual) and proceed to dislocate your shoulder 30 minutes into the workout. Yes the end of senior year is wrapping up quite smashingly. I’m only being mildly sarcastic in my … Continue reading That Awkward Moment When…
So I was creeping through my blog, as you do, and I realized that the order the posts are displayed in make absolutely no sense at all. At one point it goes from June to April to September. Last I … Continue reading Les Choses dans ma Tête
Sometimes I get in these really weird moods, like I desperately want to put hand to keyboard and type out everything going on in my brain. Except I have nothing to say. Yep. That’s me right now. Never making any … Continue reading More than Giving Thanks
Hi there! It’s been a while. I actually don’t have anything to say, even though I feel like writing. I suppose that happens when I have too many thoughts floating around in my head at the same time. Instead of focusing … Continue reading Aerospace and Shopping

I adore the zoo. When I was little my mom bought the “diamond membership” for the San Diego Zoo, though perhaps a more accurate name for the membership would have been “the pass for people who are obsessed with the zoo and … Continue reading Penguins and Gorillas and Jellyfish, Oh My!
It’s Monday. I usually love Monday because it’s a new start to an awesome adventure, research has been going pretty well, weekends are regenerative… what more could you ask for? Today, I can think of a lot of things I … Continue reading Tales of an Unusual Monday
I don’t know if they actually say that in the Midwest. They also don’t have a plethora of corn fields and flat dirt planes. There aren’t horse drawn carriages or tornados taking people away from home either. Oh wait, wrong state (although there is a tornado watch until 1am today. Hooray adventure!) Needless to say, choosing an REU (undergraduate research experience) that took me out to the middle of the country has been an eye opening experience in the best way possible. I know, I could have gone to Amsterdam to use mechanical engineering for art restoration, which sounded awesome at the … Continue reading Hey Y’all!
