95. Pinterest Galore

So, more on using Pinterest. I have always been an avid user of Pinterest. I use it all the time to build up my boards for memes and interesting photos to show in my classes. There are soooo many pictures related to science and they definitely pique my students’ interests. Plus how fun is it […]

90. Wash your hands

There’s been a lot of fear and nervousness around the corona virus outbreak, so I figured I would do a post on what I tell my students when they ask. Wash your hands. The best thing to protect yourself if you do get the virus, or anything for that matter, is to wash your hands. […]

89. Sewage

Sometimes bad days just happen. One Christmas Eve we were coming back home late at night, happy, laughing, and looking forward to spending the holiday with more family. We walk into our house, and all seems well. My husband decides he is going to take a quick shower. I’m bringing in our dogs from letting […]

88. Building off failure

Inventing is a numbers game. Edison said it the best, “I found 10,000 ways not to make a lightbulb.” Nowadays, you can google how a lightbulb works and it seems like common sense. But when candles were the only source of light at night, no one had a clue how a lightbulb worked. This resonates […]

87. Haunted House

I’ve been inside a haunted house. Once, when I was in undergrad, other students told the story of a teenager who murdered his parents and burned down the house. I didn’t believe it might be true until one of them told me where to find the house remains. I got chills. That conversation always stuck […]

86. Consulting Cover Letters

Details matter, especially in job hunting. Recently I had a client who lost their job and was desperate to find another as soon as possible. I offered my services for cover letters and set up email tracking for them for a few jobs they really wanted to get an interview for. The way you word […]

84. Meal Prepping

One way I have decided to save money this year is to buy food in bulk and meal prep at home for the week. *Gasp* But don’t you not know how to cook???? Didn’t you almost burn down the house once trying to make hashbrowns????? Lol I am taking my meager skills, and with the […]

83. Weaving Through Thunderstorms

Ever weaved through thunderstorms? One of the nicest things my husband did for me this past year was direct me through oncoming storms. After teaching my night class I was walking to the parking lot and noticed the sky was dark. Angry dark. I called up my husband, who informed me it was headed towards […]

82. Valentine’s Day

What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? For some, it means flowers and chocolate and date night. For others, it is a propaganda holiday, advertising to people to get all the candy; spend all this money on a lavish present; to prove your love to your significant other. It all comes down to this one […]

81. Cooking hamburgers

Yet another cooking misadventure. Lately we’ve been eating a lot of meat—mostly hamburgers and chicken, but we do have a duck in our freezer waiting to be thawed. I’ve seen my husband grill hamburgers a lot. Sometimes we use pre-made patties, sometimes we make our own, but always he turns the propane on, lets it […]
