I drew a thing for my boyfriend’s aunt and uncle who let us stay in their fancy house in Highgate and eat their fruit.

I’M SORRY I HAVEN’T BEEN POSTING ABOUT THE FRINGE IT’S JUST SO FUN AND BUSY. 

I’ll be headed down to Brighton tomorrow and will try to pay a bunch of money for WiFi on the train so I can get some posts up. So many beautiful thoughts, so many wonderful experiences. 

In the meantime, here’s some pictures of where we’re staying in downtown Edinburgh, some Edinburgh Book Festival shots, and where I was standing for the surprise (to me, at least) Neutral Milk Hotel concert the other night at the Corn Exchange. Arran grabbed the set list. Well done.

"Today is the first day of school. I gess I am not what you would call normal. As you can planely see, I am completely made of Legos. Today we saw last year’s report card. I got an F in writing because jist look at my hands. There Legos for peat sake. But I got an A- in sience because the testoob fit in my hand."

Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.

Inappropriate Beard Fight

About six years ago, a teaching colleague shared his favorite break-time creative drawing prompt for kids—Draw two guys fighting using only their beards—and I’ve used it at least once in every class I’ve taught since then. Students get a kick out of it, and the most creative assignments earn bonus points that go towards class rewards.

The other day, a quiet 10-year-old girl in my class started her version of the Beard Fight exercise, telling me that in her picture, the fighters would have their beards cut into the shape of boxing gloves. 

She delivered.

I really don’t want to teach forever, but goddamn sometimes I love my job.

Flip-Flopper

Until I was 20 I wanted to be a doctor—a psychiatrist—and to that end I studied the nuts out of biology, psychology, anatomy, and math (I was even in the upper realm of okay at math! Totes a B student. Sometimes even, like, an A- on occasion). However I always sucked at chemistry, I was terrible at statistics, and I can’t remember if I even took physics because by my 3rd year of university, the lab levels had shown me to be utterly inept at cutting stuff open and/or measuring powder.

I know I’m an art person these days, but every so often I google “developmental psychology PhD programs” and sigh.

I also find myself googlebaited by programs in art history or restoration—something where I could work in a museum touching all the old things. If I can’t be rich, I might as well be elbow deep in historical treasures. 

I want to begin a career track. How do we know what we want to be when we grow up, you guys?
