babies, medical research 

Tonight I am VERY excited because my fiance's paper has been published in the Journal of Pediatrics and will hopefully! help so many babies born premature! I really cannot express my joy enough!

i know ive been pretty quiet for a minute here but im going a lil radio silent for the next couple of days while i try and sort some of my school stuff out

veganism, food deserts 

I love vegans for what they do to save the planet and animals, but some of them don't realize food deserts still exist so being militant toward "omnivores" and their diets isn't helpful. Insisting a vegan diet is cheap isn't helpful. Insisting a vegan diet is cheap and people who don't do it are lazy is trashy to say the least.

Food deserts are real in urban and rural spaces, wherever the poverty is. We need cheaper nutritional food to be more available in order for veganism and it's benefits to get a strong foothold. That means local grow ops and solarpunk transformations of living spaces. Being snide achieves nothing. Rant over.

new year thoughts 

ive been thinking about the past year and all of the wonderful experiences i've had (visiting texas (three times!), The Portugal Trip, meeting @Obsidian, and the wonderful artists I finally saw in concert, among other things) and i can't help but be delighted for the coming year. yes! there were less good things. i had some health scares, as did my loved ones. there were struggles. but we came out the other side, didn't we? we're still kicking? so i can't help but be hopeful for the coming year. if last year can have so much joy, so can this year. here's to 2019!

lovecraft? a racist. derleth? a nerd. *i* am the only good cosmic horror writer, because I let the unknowable beings date

how do i tell the difference between my dog's chase dreams and an asthma attack shes old and allergic to everything but also apparently is probably giving me the wild dreams send fucking toot

Remember how we thought we knew what Pluto looked like, but we actually didn't because we had been working off artists' renditions and some HST smudges? Then, all of a sudden, we had *amazing* high-quality, true color photos of that gorgeous thing with its eerie lack of color and surprise heart? <3

We didn't even know Ultima Thule existed five years ago. Here's what it looks like as I'm going to bed! Tomorrow we'll actually know for real!

So happy to meet this icy rocky planet-stuff baby. \o/

Fun Fact! 

2019 is the UN's International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements since it's the 150th anniversary of Mendeleev's periodic table.

i tried to make a super-cola made up of mixing every single pop from the coke freestyle machine and now i'm missing two limbs and my brother's soul is merged to a suit of armor

Tbh, folkpunk is a truer continuation of the original roots and values of folk music than modern country music could ever be

"You've been chosen," the spirit said.
"What?"
"Save the world, make it kinder, cleaner, safer."
"Me?"
"Yes."
"Alone?"
"We chose everyone."

i want to...invite a girl over for a tea party

Look, all I'm saying is that brunch with the girls is fun and all, but Brunch with the Boys is a whole new level of bonding in a non-traditional setting, which is so needed for men's health and communication.

New Years, Looking Forward 

2019:
-Leave behind what 2018 grief you are able
-Love fiercely and wholly. Love as many as you can and defend all who you love.
-Ask how you harm others. Ask how you can do it less.
-Refuse to waste your limited time on this world being afraid of who you are.
