Hello friends!

So I’ve barely posted this year because I took a year off to apply to grad school and such and I’ve been crazy busy getting ready for my move to Leiden in 33 days (which is absolutely insane - I’M ACTUALLY MOVING TO HOLLAND). BUT now that I’m finally starting grad school I am hoping that I’ll post a lot more so this is just an update to let any of you who have stuck around that I am back and ready to partyyyyyyyyy. And by ‘party’ I mean ‘lock myself in the lab and cry over my thesis’ because let’s be real, I’m already panicking about my thesis and I haven’t even started classes yet. But let’s not think about that right now and instead think about the fact that I’m moving to Holland with this weird rotating Holland gif that I found!!

This is what almost four billion years of human evolution looks like when it’s condensed down to ten seconds, thanks to the fine folks behind the original Cosmos.
From self-replicating bags of chemistry to billions of bacteria to crude multicellular blobs to tiny swimming monsters to clumsily creeping fish to fuzzy proto-mammals to weird, naked, two-legged apes … every cosmic blink holds a beautiful story.
If you’d like to retrace your steps along the path of time that ends with you, I recommend this awesome Wikipedia page.

Lost Underwater Lion City: Rediscovery of China’s ‘Atlantis

Qiandao Lake is a man-made lake located in Chun’an County, China, where archeologists have discovered in 2001 ruins of an underwater city. The city is at a depth of 26-40 meters and was named “Lion City”. There would have been 290,000 people living in this city during more than 1300 years.

Elongated skulls. Often confused with bound skulls. Binding the skulls at birth could not have achieved the more extreme elongated skulls.

I was just offered a position at the Museum of Science! GUYS IM GONNA GET A MUSEUM STAFF ID BADGE THIS IS EVERYTHING IVE EVER WANTED

 THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS THAT EVEN IF YOU DONT GET A JOB RIGHT AFTER GRADUATION THATS OKAY BECAUSE THEN YOU WILL GET A JOB AND IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL

Is anyone in Boston looking to hire an accomplished and beautiful recent graduate for a position in an archaeology field? I have got 8 months until grad school (hopefully) and am in need of some employment. 

Life is hard and money is hard and how do people survive in the real world?
