Spent the morning/early afternoon working on my late summer tan (apparently accompanied by an abundance of freckles) at the pool, so now I am spending some time tonight working on my first week of school prep, reading about my favorite population theorist Ester Boserup.
So yesterday I had a very exciting night!
We had prize giving for our regional science fair. I was incredibly surprised and happy to come away with a number of major awards!
• Best living world exhibit
• Best exhibit related to water/atmosphere
• 2nd in senior science class
• 3rd place for my scientific video
• Runner up (2nd) in the whole fair (over 400 entries!!!)
I got these two trophies in the photo, this really awesome book with epic illustrations and even some sneaky prize money!!
This is the best result I’ve ever gotten for a science fair entry and in my last year of high school it’s even more special. My investigation was based off the research I did for my EE (in biology) and I really enjoyed all the time I spent on it. I’m so proud of the work I put into this and super honoured to be recognised for it.
What is ib I thought you were talking about Gary the snail like ?????? He suave but is the snail that good ????????
OH MY GOD IM LAUGHING SO MUCH!!! I’m so sorry to confuse you anon!!!! As suave Garry the snail is I’m talking about Garry from Ib. Ib is a horror rpg that you can download for free online!! It’s about a girl named Ib who goes to an art gallery where eventually she ends up trapped inside another world that’s inside a painting and she has to escape, where along the way she meets my favorite character Garry, who is also trapped in the alternate world!! I TOTALLY recommend playing it!! It’s my favorite game ever!!
Recently I realised that the symptoms I’ve been enduring with since I was 14 have now affected just over a third of my lifetime so far and yet the doctor’s are not any the wiser to what is causing my issues. (I’m now 22).
They still don’t know whether or not my appendectomy is the start point or whether it was pure concidence I’ve since been suffering with chronic constipation, heck they can’t even make up their mind what to call it- each specialist I go to starts with ah it’s IBS, then as they go through medicine after medicine they decide that whilst I’m suffering from constipation continuously they have zero clue what is causing it as the ‘IBS’ cures do not seem to work with me. I feel like a freaking guinea pig, who gets poked and prodded along the conveyor belt that is my countries health service. Fun.
I decided that whilst my life has been inevitably swallowed by my debilitating condition, why not be positive and poke fun at some of the more ridiculous experiences I’ve had whilst trying to search for a cure. (Seriously, you’d think some of stuff I’ll write about is fictional but it’s really not, at the time I felt in some cases like banging my head against a brick wall!)
I’m soo thankful to be part of this lovely showcase <3 A collaboration of Soul Catz & The Mechanical Minds as the Soulfull Minds Helping Goofy with his proposal for his wife at the mainstage of ibe ! It was soooo cute, like all girls at IBE had little tears in their eyes ^^ I wish you much happiness and love Ricardo Goofy Hendriks & Izelina Sousa ! You guys are beautiful people with a lovely child xxx
