Hi everyone! If it's not clear from the 'hilarious' title I came up with (before having my morning tea lol) what I want to talk about in today's post...it's not you, it's me lol!

Hi everyone, It's been a long time since I last posted anything on here, almost two months!

Your task as a reader is to determine which one is the fake one. While I think … Continue reading Two Truths and a Lie!?

Hi everyone! It's been a while since I wrote a blog post. Last month was quite busy for me with dealing with one thing after another, such as grading mid-terms as a TA, taking a week-long astrobiology course in the middle of night (again haha!).

Hi everyone! Even though it says May in the title, June has already started when I'm writing this. Contrary to my usual topic-based blog posts, today's post is more of a life/academic update that is all over the place, much like my personal life right now haha! But before we dive into anything, let's just … Continue reading The end of May…
