Mustangs… I’ve been seeing or at least noticing them around more. I want one. For now I’m just going to have to look up different car shows to go to that are around this area.
i had the sudden and shocking realization this morning that some people have never heard the ‘oh where is my hairbrush’ song and don’t automatically sing it in their heads when they’re looking for something
whY IS THERE A CUCUMBER IN A SHOWER
This song. Oh god.
THIS!! First off, I sometimes sing part of this song while trying to find something. Secondly, thinking really deep right now about this… aren’t we all kind of like him trying to find that one thing that we really think that we need but truly could live without. A pickle does not need a hairbrush, do we really need that thing that we lost? Finally, I would like to say if you don’t need something give it away to someone that needs it or can use it in some way. Just have been thinking about a minimalistic life style and decreasing the amount of random/obscure things that I have with me. Like “why do I need touchable bubbles?” (…well maybe I actually do need that one) and “why do I have old pairs of eye glasses?” I don’t know. Yeah this is really deep for a little something but I needed words to explain my thoughts. =)
Post with 2 notes
This blog originally started out when I needed a way to “escape” and “verbalize/show” what was going on and what I was thinking and it was through pictures and words. It has since then accomplished it’s mission. Due to this fact I am making some changes to the way I am running this blog. It is still going to be personal in nature, have some of the randomness…
I’m only going flat out reblog interesting articles and videos to educate the public on different subjects of my interest, occasional comments may be made. I am going to start making comments on all of the pictures I post, which their may be a decrease in. I am also going to start doing some free time writing, and some when I am stressed/need to get something out, be it joy or sorrow.
I am changing the way I have been doing things because it is no longer the way I feel I can express myself. It’s a bit of a challenge for me to do it this way and I want to see how it goes. I don’t know why completely but yeah…
I hope you enjoy the new way I am going to be doing this. If you do not, I apologize.
^This and the song the lyrics come with. It’s adorable.
‘In the original study, we found that children who hear the same stories again and again learn words better than the kids who get the different stories,’ she told the Independent on Sunday.
‘In the follow-up study I looked at how this worked over time. We have seen the same effect - that kids actually learn better when the information that they are not even trying to learn is repeated.’ Dr Horst’s research is expected to appear in the journal Frontiers of Developmental Psychology later this year.

What would you call heavy lifting? 45 pounds? 50 pounds? 75 pounds?
I am looking apply to a position nearby and was trying to figure this all out. I don’t want to end up too muscular from my job and my mom will worry.
While I know I can lift/carry the large dog food bags, sleeper sofas with a partner, and my little (but not little as in really young) sisters if we are talking deadweight/barrel types that messes the center of gravity and heaving abilities I know I can not do it at my current state.
Think I should apply? This would open up some positions that in the male-dominated section of the field and make more entry-level positions available.
Holy fuck Arthur was on some next level shit
Oh my god
And that’s why I still love the show Arthur, it still tries to help kids understand each other and the world around them in an interesting way.
Overly Honest Methods: Uncovering the hilarious truth behind how science actually gets done
Earlier this week, in a fit of comedic inspiration, a postdoc named Leigh tweeted a funny lab confession and included the hashtag #overlyhonestmethods. By the end of the day, dozens of scientists had joined in, and the result is nothing short of hilarious.
Science is an incredibly painstaking and difficult process, and in addition to being quite funny, these tweets pull back the curtain on just how human a process research really is. Some of them had me raising my eyebrows right after I finished giggling, because please tell me you didn’t actually do that. Others had me nodding sagely in agreement, because sometimes you drop a tube or run out of a chemical and the world has to keep on turning, man.
Found some positions nearby that I am qualified for, got a few random backup ideas that will be pretty good employment. Just have to fix the resume and apply… and wait for grades to make sure I don’t have any issues with the graduation things but yeah…
Still thinking about possibilities of Peace Corps… and different grad school programs for later.
Oh and I recently during my breaks have decided I really want to run a homeless shelter or do the type of thing like pitbulls and parolees…
In basic summary, if I can keep myself together I am going to make this period with absolutely no attachment to get some wicked cool life experiences and get possible long term goals in place. Don’t doubt me though, I would love to find a guy, get married and have/adopt kids, now. But hey, the right guy will come along when he comes along and it just isn’t in my love story yet. =)
“When Nature Calls” - Public Toilet Design// Eddie Gandelman
“By setting up the restroom in pod format with 4 urinals on every pod, the users can enjoy more space and privacy. This system as well paves way for both peeing and watering the plants. Approved by a professor of toxicology, the project employs 3 processes. The urine thus collected is filtered, which is then used for the plants. Peeing, besides being a waste process becomes a nurturing one, which appears to be a great advantage here. This idea will certainly make the very notion of urination a better experience.”
Gardens in a bathroom? Sounds like the next great design opportunity!
Yes, it is what you think it is, urinal designs to be more “green” if possible… and this is a small part of what I would like to do with my life, creation of technologies and integration of these products into every day life.
Done with phytoremediation, moving onto resource economic paper on possible policy implementation concerning fair trade, due soonish. But somehow got distracted and I am reading about microprocessor controlled knee prosthetics, and researching homeless shelters for a friend.
Most amputees go through a lot of prosthetics in a lifetime. This can be expensive, especially in the developing world. The Beth Project aims to change that by making a prosthetic that can change along with the human body. Van Phillips, who designed the Flex-Foot Cheetah blades that carried Oscar Pistorius to the Olympics, describes a bad prosthetic limb socket like a stone in your shoe: a nagging discomfort you have to live with until you get the thing adjusted, or replaced. Many prosthetics wearers live with pain and soreness, either because the socket is badly fitted, or their residual limb changes volume and shape, pushing the socket out of place. According to Jason Hill, co-designer of a new type of prosthetic system, some amputees go through 20 sockets in a lifetime, because the old one no longer fits properly.

<3 Sigh. Really have been thinking about this whole MSPO thing a lot lately… sigh. Maybe someday.
Founder of a free school for slum children Rajesh Kumar Sharma, second from right, and Laxmi Chandra, right, write on black boards, painted on a building wall, at a free school run under a metro bridge in New Delhi, India. At least 30 children living in the nearby slums have been receiving free education from this school for the last three years.
This is the sort of thing I kind of really want to do.
And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive
