SpiritChrysalis made an entry about what's up, so I will too.

Bone tired all the time but overall having a blast in lab.

FetLife is my primary means of social networking here in Utah

I cut my hair, so now if I want to wear cyberfalls I must get like a headband or something, because it's buzzed short. On the bright side, my trichotillomania is all but gone. Also I look like a dyke, lol.

If you want to read my other blog which is mostly about lab grumps or lab yays, the URL is tabitharaygunn .d o t. wordpress d.o.t com.

I... guess that's all for now.


State of Affairs

I am in Utah.

I go to Utah State University.

I am getting a PhD in Biological Engineering.

I like how things are going :)

That is approximately it.

the end.
Excel Tutoring is hiring math, science, english, and SAT tutors. [One of which will be my replacement :P] They pay really well, and the hours are flexible around YOU. Pass it on, they need people for the upcoming school year!!

See Excel Tutoring, LLC for details.

Workout #4

So, the locker room was open. I got there at like 6:10, and snuck in through the Armory... maybe that helped.

Then I worked out on the bike... watching Wasatch eps 1-5. I'll be sad when its over, because the editor has really good taste in music, and I also have fresh powder envy. They are shooting the next season today... but still.

Hopefully(!) I'll get accepted to University of Utah, so that if I wish, I may attend there and carve some of my own tracks in the snow. (Green slopes only at first!!)

RPI Gym Review: Day 1

I'll start off by saying "I am out of shape".

I never was in shape. I'm not an athlete, and I hate running. And I'm physically slow... I do not run fast and when I walk my stride is only about 12 or 14 inches. (Oh, this is all very negative, isn't it?)

Well, lately I also feel encumbered. Like, UGH it takes a lot of energy to pick myself up out of my chair.

So, I've started working out regularly! maybe. They say if you can keep it up for 2 weeks, you're golden.

My goal is 3x a week for some amount of time more than 20 minutes.

I went today and here is what I observed:Collapse )

If you wouldn't mind, erm....commenting? to let me know you've seen this.... maybe blogging will help me keep to a schedule. FOR THE READERS, MAN!!
Please note: Lucy Knisely is not me, but she draws really well and has overall great, cute ideas.

So, without further ado...


What do you do when you're Really Angry/Jealous about something, or even a set of somethings all related to each other, and these things are not going to change?


A silly quiz to de-stress

You are The Sun

Happiness, Content, Joy.

The meanings for the Sun are fairly simple and consistent.

Young, healthy, new, fresh. The brain is working, things that were muddled come clear, everything falls into place, and everything seems to go your way.

The Sun is ruled by the Sun, of course. This is the light that comes after the long dark night, Apollo to the Moon's Diana. A positive card, it promises you your day in the sun. Glory, gain, triumph, pleasure, truth, success. As the moon symbolized inspiration from the unconscious, from dreams, this card symbolizes discoveries made fully consciousness and wide awake. You have an understanding and enjoyment of science and math, beautifully constructed music, carefully reasoned philosophy. It is a card of intellect, clarity of mind, and feelings of youthful energy.

Around the world

This is what we look like, right now

The room is dark spare for two lights illuminating in a golden and orange glow at opposite ends of the room. The television hums about anti-Alzheimer medication, imploring us to remember the past and not fear the future. My significant other watches cooking shows, even at 1:19 in the morning.

I read the blog of a Chinese co-worker, translated over the internet from Mandarin to English. It is broken english, but the meaning is there. I wish to make her a necklace to show my congratulations for passing her candidacy examination.

Is there more to life than the passing of material items? Is it not enough to wish someone well, must we also present them with a token of our thanks?

And, perhaps most worrisome, can an understated reassurance still be enough to survive on?

The television presents the Hedgehog's Dilemma: can we ever be so close as to not be alone, but to avoid getting hurt?

I wish to create something, something more than a simple post that only a handful of people will read.

Good luck.



Does anyone ever use it?

Post your experiences here. I find that it COULD be a great place to chat, but so far I've gotten tons of requests for cyber.

Why does anonymity make people dumbbbb?
