I feel bad for taking a non-education job…

…but my lab has a coffee bar and scented micropipettes.

Fucking shit

This is simultaneously cool-looking and absolutely terrifying.

i was like, ohhhh what adorable little - AHHHHHH NO

OOOH NO

Is it odd that I feel entirely comfortable with everything happening here?

Oh, this is lovely. Reminds me of “Dance of the Dwarfs.”

Here are a couple of gifs of the Dumbo Octopus (Grimpoteuthis sp.) encountered by the NOAA Okeanos crew a few days ago in the depths of the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida.

I chose the research job instead of the education one. I know far more scientists who contribute to education on the side than teachers who research on the side, so I feel like this path will get me where I want to go more quickly.

Oh no, my latent impostor syndrome is flaring up.

The Blood Harvest - The Atlantic

The role horseshoe crabs play in a test for bacterial contamination… why are you reading this description when the title of the article is “The freaking Blood Harvest?”

HOLY SNACK CAKES I GOT A JOB IN MY FIELD

:D

It’s kind of a great feeling isn’t it?

Great, yet terrifying? Like walking a tightrope…it doesn’t matter how much practice you do near the ground, eventually you’re all alone 100 ft up with the wind whistling in your ears.


But ultimately, yeah it’s awesome!!!

HOLY SNACK CAKES I GOT A JOB IN MY FIELD

After what was probably an unsuccessful interview for a really cool job, I need to drink wine* til I’m giddy and watch every Big Fat Quiz available on YouTube.


*I feel I should mention the wine currently at my disposal is 40 years old. So fancy**

**No, actually it was found in the basement of an old man who died 5 years ago so it’s probably corked and haunted. Antithesis of fancy.
