they are going to be steps away from my office on Friday, thinking of skipping a few hours to go see if I can get a look

Today’s #WCW is a double header, staring Steph Evz (on the right) and Heather Archuletta (on the left). Together, Steph and Heather started the twitter tag #ThankYouSTEMWomen, saluting women who’ve rocked the STEM field. 

Both of these women have incredibly impressive scientific backgrounds. Heather was born in the San Francisco Bay Area, and educated at Mills College and the University of London. She loves to travel for both jobs and leisure, having lived in 7 states and visited all 50. After working in the tech industry for 17 years at large corporations like Oracle and Western Digital, she joined NASA for space flight simulations, to study the long-term effects of weightlessness on the human body. These projects help Johnson Space Center scientists learn about how to keep astronauts healthy in space. Her “Pillow Astronaut” blog and social media accounts have been featured in Wired, Popular Science, and FOX news in America, as well as news outlets in Europe, India, Scandinavia and Russia. 

Stephanie Evans is a 25 year old systems engineer that is currently working in Sacramento. She is the founder of The STEMulus YouTube channel (http://www.stephevz.wix.com/twistem) and huge advocate for STEM education and the encouragement of women in STEM. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology in 2012. While attending college, she worked on the Missouri S&T Satellite Design Team (M-SAT), which fueled her passion for space exploration. She hopes to spread an interest in STEM through her YouTube channel and to inspire young women to pursue STEM careers.

Ha, like, I must’ve sent a billion letters to those motherfuckers, and I don’t think I got a response. My mother also tried out for Wheel of Fortune a buncha times, I think she made it to a local like, recruiting thing, but only got rejection/ I don’t think either of us realized that nobody cares how fucking smart you are, as long as you’re entertaining or good looking. These studio dicks missed out on a loud mouth cocky 11 year old nerd or his Jamaican mother who worked for the DOD. Could’ve been stars.

Anyway, I can’t remember what random state I wanted to visit, probably like Texas or California.
