Some Wednesday finds & my first post

10 Jun

I don’t feel like doing an introductory post on this new blog. If you want to know about me, check the about page (I’ll be updating it soon, I promise).
In the meantime, here are some things that are inspiring me today.

This gif! I really need to go see the new Jurassic World movie. What’s really cool though is that this scene looks to be shot in a giant greenhouse dome and i’m a sucker for greenhouses.

In honor of World Ocean Day, on June 8th, google Maps made an underwater street view. It looks really great.
check it out!

I have had the idea of dying my lab coat since I bought it. I jut never got around to doing it. The description she gives is definitely motivating though : “For the past five years I’ve had to dedicate the majority of my time to science. In liberating myself from the pure whiteness of the coat, I feel like I’m breaking away from my rigid University education – I’m free now to learn what and how I want.”
This is exactly how I feel about abandoning my idea to get a PhD and going into the taxidermy field (again, check out the about me page). So I have a feeling this will be my next DIY project.

Well, that’s it for now.
