New Website for Women/Girls in Science/Tech/Engineering/Math!
Dear sciency/techy/mathy ladies and the people who love them,

I've just launched, a networking website and collaborative blog aimed at supporting girls and women interested in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) fields!

If you're at all interested, please join and participate -- it would also be great if you could share this link with anyone else who might be interested!

I'm also particularly looking for people to contribute to the blog now so that there will be more content there by the time the site reaches a wider audience. The topics are pretty broad -- really, anything that seems like it could be of interest to women in these fields -- and short posts or link posts are great, so it doesn't have to be much of a time investment.

I hope you're as excited about this as I am!! :)

Today I spent most of the day working on human-size Settlers of Catan! Our team was assigned to build forest hexes and some other pieces... then we met up with four other teams and had a full five-player game on the quad. Photos will be on Flickr soon!

hello world
happy, smile
um, i am still around. i keep meaning to write more in here, but i keep getting distracted by my other blog.

apparently the last time i wrote in this journal i was in new york city. since then i have:
  • read about a third of gravity's rainbow
  • had intense times with work
  • rickrolled myself at work, a lot
  • spent a week living with six other people on a boat in the british virgin islands
  • spent at least one night every week sans tv/internet
  • stopped eating mammals
  • tried to plan recipes around a farm share
  • learned to play tennis
  • roadtripped down the east coast and through west virginia (home of my parents' microfarm), virginia, tennessee, and kentucky (where i fulfilled a decade-old goal of eating ice cream in a kentucky motel room)
  • implemented a tickler file
  • landed projects with payments of increasing orders of magnitude, but remained more or less broke (though in decreasing debt)
  • gone camping on the cape in the pun-full town of sandwich

i am bad at keeping in touch with people, even people i live near and hang out with. if you live near me, we should hang out; if you don't, we should still catch up.

a starbucks in new york city is rickrolling me RIGHT NOW

I posted about this a bit before, but I'm still bloggin' away; in fact, I'm in the middle of a 30-day project of blogging every day.

I also realized that my transfer of my site to a different server a few months ago may have screwed up the blog's RSS for any of you who were subscribed. This should be the current feed.

Your Score: Tigger

You scored 16 Ego, 10 Anxiety, and 18 Agency!

And as they went, Tigger told Roo (who wanted to know)
all about the things that Tiggers could do.

"Can they fly?" asked Roo.

"Yes," said Tigger, "they're very good flyers, Tiggers
are. Strornry good flyers."

"Oo!" said Roo. "Can they fly as well as Owl?"

"Yes," said Tigger. "Only they don't want to."

"Why don't they want to?" well, they just don't like it

Roo couldn't understand this, because he thought it
would be lovely to be able to fly, but Tigger said it was
difficult to explain to anybody who wasn't a Tigger himself.

You scored as Tigger!

ABOUT TIGGER: Tigger is the newest addition to the Hundred Acre Wood, and he lives with Kanga and Roo, because Roo's strengthening medicine turned out to be the thing that Tiggers like best. Tigger is bouncy and confident -some of his friends think he is a little TOO bouncy and confident, but attempts to unbounce him tend to be fruitless.

WHAT THIS SAYS ABOUT YOU: You are a positive and confident person. You feel capable of dealing with anything and everything, and funnily enough, you usually ARE. You don't worry about much, and you love to go out and find new adventures.

Your friends and family might sometimes be a little exasperated by your boundless enthusiasm. You don't like to admit your mistakes, and when you find yourself in over you head, you tend to bluff your way out of things. You would be surprised, however, at how happy the people around you would be if you would actually admit to a mistake. It would make you seem more human, somehow.
