Summertime is in full swing, and here’s a few things that have caught my eye: NASA’s Mission to Jupiter Will Tell Us Earth’s Origin Story “I cannot wait to learn more about Jupiter from the Juno voyage”is a bit of an understatement as I AM SO EXCITED! This is a great piece from Gizmodo that…

As of Late: Accidental Blog Hiatus

Well, hopefully this is goodbye to my accidental blog hiatus. Reading books, unfortunately, has not been high on my to-do list. And when reading isn’t happening, writing isn’t happening.

As of Late: On to December!

Oof. Finally back in Oklahoma after a Friendsgiving trip after being forced to stay an extra day, rather than flying back in the middle of an ice storm. This meant extra time with friends as well as time to peruse Twitter and the like to see what’s what. So now that it’s time to put…

As of Late: How is it late November already?

Well, well, well, it’s that time again for what I’ve been reading online lately. No commentary today–been super busy at work this week and prepping to visit my BFFs for Thanksgiving next week. I’m thankful for the time off and to see my friends, but hoo boy, there’s a lot of work that needs to…

Happy Friday! Here’s a round-up of some things I’ve read online this week: Inside Amazon: Wrestling Big Ideas in a Bruising Workplace If you haven’t read this already, you should.
