water women #bloodsisters

Today, May 28, is menstrual hygiene day. I bet you weren’t expecting me to say that, huh? #bloodsisters In celebration of the day, let’s trend a hashtag and make some waves in the world. Who are the water women? Well, that’s us. You and me. #waterwomen Y’all who know me know that I LOVE Water For People. […]

on rebuilding & gratefulness

On rebuilding & gratefulness. In Fifth Season-esque prose. A rare non-engineering post which I hope that at some point, if you need it, you may find some solace&companionship in this poetry. For lovers are always poets, not scientists, mathematicians, or engineers. Next time, back to regularly scheduled engineering posts. I won’t promise to speak the truth. Or […]

Real Pumps Have Curves

These are pumps. This is a pump. No, we’re not talking shoes (though those are great too). Pumps move water (or other liquids). They provide flow like this. Each curve is a different pump or impeller size. We’ve all been in the shower and said “there’s not enough pressure!”. So we’re all in agreement, that […]

bullet journaling techniques

About a year ago, I was trying to figure out organizational tips to help beat anxiety. Since then, bullet journaling has exploded and evolved into a many headed beast. As there’s been a significant increase in interest over the last few months, I wanted to share the tips that work for me. That’s not to say […]

caturday nostalgia & PE prep

It’s been a loooooong long long longlonglonglong 6 months. It didn’t really hit me until last night–how much of the last 6 months I’ve spent stressing and worrying about the PE exam.  My instagram has been a montage of Zanzamittens kindly requesting more attention by inserting herself on top of anything I am studying. I’ve […]

Spicy Sweet Potato Chipotle Chili (vegan, gluten free)

In the past 16 hours, I’ve had three meals that consisted solely of chili. The best chili ever. And it just happens to be vegan and gluten-free. PERFECT for these rainy, chilly December days we’ve been having in Texas. I had soup-y chili for dinner last night, cold chili for breakfast, and then I whipped […]

corduroys & GIS stats

I’ve always wanted the fat corduroys that they sell in the men’s section but not in women’s sizes for whatever reason. In high school, my bestie G and I had a green pair that we found at goodwill, LOVED, and shared à la sisterhood of the traveling pants. I’m pretty sure they were a men’s […]
