I think it’s been like 3 years or something since I’ve made this blog and it has definitely been a great ride. I’ve been attacked and ridiculed, emailed, written and messaged with heartfelt thanks, lovingly appreciated and totally dissed and I don’t regret (most) of it at all. The main goal of my blog when I started it was to make people interested in science again but not only that, but to avoid people looking at, reading or attempting to understand STEM articles and concepts from believing that it was over their heads or something only for science people. I wanted science to exciting, understandable and accessible to everyone without treating my target audience(s) like illiterate boobs who didn’t deserve to have few long, difficult scientific names and concepts thrown at them once in a while or who didn’t deserve to be spoken to as one would with one’s peers. Whether or not I accomplished any of that, I actually have no idea but for the sake of not feeling like a POS, I want to hope I did. I will continue posting and tell you my delete date as it draws near and I am really really sorry, my entire life exists as a total disappointment to everyone I meet and I never meant to disappoint, annoy or inconvenience 36,000 strangers. There are definitely way better science blogs you can follow ( I might bring the list back) so I encourage you to do so, as for me I think I’m done. I severely dislike the tumblr environment and atmosphere overall and I also find myself losing passion and feeling for every single thing I love, including science. I still love science and will continue to do science but I am at a time in my life where the most difficult struggle to me is getting out of bed in the morning and not killing myself and right now I want to be alone and away from every single thing in the entire world, indefinitely. I hope this won’t rub anyone the wrong way or annoy you, I really enjoyed the people I got to know on here and I hope everything turns out lovely for you all. I hope you continue to love science and never ever for ever never think that there is anything your mind can’t comprehend, regardless of how smart you think you might not be and remember please that there are several trillion ways of learning beyond how everyone else does it so don’t feel less than the intelligent person you are if you don’t get it the first time. I hope 2014 is a good year for us all.
Human beings of the internet, I implore you!
I don’t mean to be eine arme Stück Scheiße but I am a poor POS and this will be one of the few times that I ask for any money. I always have the donate button on my blog but right now I am desperately trying to raise money for my public health trip to Honduras this May! My long time followers remember me going last year (hence the photo) but for those who don’t I will be going with an organization called Global Brigades, we will be going to a rural area of Honduras and building pilas (water storage units), showers, toilets (with septic tanks), putting in concrete floors and building eco stoves. I just ask if you have any spare moneys, that you leave a small donation on my page or PM me to donate directly to my mission trip (my donation page has all my info, including my full four names so I don’t want to link it here) if not please feel free to share or ignore the hell out of this (whichever works). Thanks a lot lovely followers and thanks for sticking with me, even though I’ve been sick and dying and stuff <3
