Getting Dirt-y

I have a confession: I don’t do a whole lot of science. You would think that I do, seeing as I’m an Environmental SCIENCE major and everything, but since I’m on the Environmental Science and Policy track, I spend a lot less time doing science and a whole bunch of time reading about other people doing science.

I’m Not a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Anymore

I’m not a teenager anymore! I am now 20 years of age. Born on January 29 and…let’s cut the chitchat short and get to the nitty-gritty. How did I spend the day? I’m sure you’re dying to know. On Birthday Eve, my friend and I sat in my room discussing our scene for Actor as…
