Geeking & drinking

I'm a late 20s molecular biologist trying to get a grip on adulthood and the science industry. With a drink in hand, of course.

I... hail from Appalachian Virginia, drink wine, take ridiculous pictures of my dog, travel a good bit for work, geek out over science, plan #DCSciTweetUp, enjoy photography, hate on anti-vaxers, adore my awesome family, live with a former Navy man (J) that I love very much, shop too much on the internet, often make messes when attempting DIY projects, and share ridiculousness from my weekend retail job.

This is my life. Enjoy!

While morons are worrying about vaccines, some scientists are looking into the real cause of autism.  

It’s okay though, we’re all in a conspiracy with the government to keep making kids autistic by requiring vaccines. If you can’t detect the sarcasm here, please don’t talk to me. EVER.

The cuttlefish is just creepy. But I’m keeping that soap/milk thing in my notes for the day I have ankle biters.
