a day of change

My apologies to those who have messaged me or sent asks and have received no reply.

I have a brain of boiled pudding, and am TERRIBLE at replying - compliments have made my day, suggestions have been noted, and insults have been… nowhere to be found, actually.

Someday, somehow, I will reply to everyone who has written to me.

Except you, Kenneth. Because fuck you Kenneth.

  • This weekend, members of the nation’s scientific community are battling back with an Earth Day March for Science at the nation’s capital.
  • The March for Science initiative is a cooperative partnership between more than 200 scientific and academic institutions as well as nonprofits, uniting to “defend the vital role science plays in our health, safety, economies and governments,” according to the campaign’s website.
