This is Water…

28 May

Watch this awesome video.

I’m starting to learn just how real the situations presented are. And unfortunately, it’s come at a cost to this blog. So many hours in the field and processing samples has been much more draining than I had initially expected. When I get home, all I want to do is relax, get some basic chores done, and use my brain with some strategy games (Civilization IV!). As a result, I haven’t spent much time writing posts over the last couple weeks. It’s not that I don’t want to do this, quite the opposite actually. However, I am not a natural writer and doing these posts feels like work sometimes, I have to put quite a bit of effort into it.

So, moving forward, I’m planning on focusing on product reviews as that seems to be what most people like. I’ll still get the occasional personal post in (like this one) but I’ll be trying to write at least 1-2 reviews a week. I’m finally settling into a rhythm and hopefully that means you’ll be hearing more from me soon! :) Thanks for bearing with me.

I’d also like to share a couple cool things that have been going on in my life. First of all, currently, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter are all visible in the sky to the naked eye after sunset. In fact, two days ago was the closest grouping of three visible planets in the sky until 2021! Here are a couple of the pictures I took: (excuse the large images, but I think the beauty of the event demands the full resolution)

The sunset before the Dance of the Planets... absolutely beautiful!!

I'm so glad the weather was so great for this event! Beautiful colors in the sky!

In other news, I’ve started to try the Zombie, Run! app and so far I love it. I’ll be posting a full review of it sometime over the summer but if you’re on the fence about it, definitely go for it!

Thanks for reading everyone! I hope you all are doing well and you’ll be hearing more from me soon! :)

    Great post, and big “T” True. The speech makes me wonder how many people are capable of truly grasping what the speaker was getting at… That speech holds the key to happiness, nothing less. Thanks for sharing it.

    That is one of my favorite speeches ever. I’m always excited to find people who appreciate it like I do!
