The last week of classes sometimes means you work through dinner and have to make a meal after your workout at 10:30 PM. #phdlife

cracking the window open 
just so the wind can blow in
the lovely scent of petrichor
and close behind follows
the promise of summer 
lazy days and hot nights
lightning and thunder
and all the excitement 
a beginning, an end 
and the journey in between
it is so near now
i can almost taste it 
like sweet watermelon juice 
dripping down my chin
and feel it like sudden summer 
rain soaking my skin and
the warm and humid air waiting
to tease the curls from my hair
i can close my eyes and see it
like bright fireworks against a dark sky
summer is a story i tell myself 
summer is a place where i can be free

this small and fragile world
therein resides all the life
we currently know
and all the dreams of life beyond

I left my phone in the department office for a minute and Azia left me some new pics of her face. Well, I guess that means I have to post them online, right?

We recorded the first episode of Season 9 of Talking Space over the weekend and while we were all testing our audio setups and laughing at each other for our blooper-worthy moments this was my explanation for my habit of singing to rockets. It's so true. #space #rockets

#TBT to that time I filmed a commercial for healthcare.gov and then that same commercial pissed off Trump and he tried to cancel it. I'm grateful that the #ACA is still the law of the land, but we can't stop now! If you're benefiting from it or if you care about the millions of people who need it, make sure you call and write your elected officials and let them know you expect improvements, not rollbacks!

I make my bed every day because even if the rest of the day go sideways (as can happen with the #phdlife), at least I accomplished this one thing. Today, I procrastinated making my bed so I forgot I actually did it, so it was lovely to walk in to a made bed tonight.

Target was out of conventional bananas so I got these organic ones. I'm desperately trying to get them to ripen. This feels like it should be a metaphor for my #phdlife 😬
