I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.

Words cannot describe how much I love this post.

had the most incredible weekend

went on a short backpacking trip w/ the most incredible people:

  • summitted some mountains
  • hiked
  • shared bad (read: great) puns
  • sang songs
  • giggled
  • cooked 
  • frolicked in meadows of wildflowers
  • watched the sunset over wasatch mountains
  • stargazed
  • saw incredible views
  • ate trail mix

and then we came back and acted like the lunatics that we are while eating banana pancakes

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

This is gorgeous.
