New #pins for the collection from the @amnh, I have to admit the #astronaut #dinosaur really tickles me. These were a gift.

Assembly day,
NOT that I'm complaining, but putting together a telescope that's basically taller than you isn't the "easiest" thing I've done lately 😅 then again I'm 5'1" so let's be honest here this isn't the telescope's fault lol.

She's not totally up and running yet (because I have other things to do like writing that WHOI piece I'm super behind with) but soon enough she will see the stars ❤ I just have to add some last details and basically program it. After that it's just a matter of tracking clear skies and we're on.

Once again, people talk A LOT of trash about #technology (ironically while using tech) but I absolutely adore it. If used the right way, it can be an amazing tool. To that effect, #socialmedia has become a favorite of mine.
I've been resting lately because of heart issues again due to the damage from long term #chronicstress, I'll be fine though I just need to take it easy for a bit.

Anyways even with this little set up at home and in bed rest at the moment, not only am I handling heavy recruiting work, but I'm also volunteering with a #STEM mentoring org, JUST did an interview, and I'm about to do all the Physics for my coming up studying online.
So yea, technology is pretty useful in my book.

Glad to be back home to this baby! The plan is to assemble my #celestron #telescope today, now... having enough time is the tricky part. Wish me luck, if I can't do it today I'm pinning next weekend to assemble and get acquainted with it. Not sure exactly when I'll start doing #astrophotography since edu, work, mommy-ing and engagements are about to hit me hard, I'm done with talks for 2018 so the start of 2019 should allow me some moon-shooting 🤞

Thank you to all these great faces who made it to the big screen at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution ❤ for my talk about #science in the time of #socialmedia. I didn't add all the slides but really just wanted to say thank you because your faces actually reminded me of all the good things that happened this year over any bad ones. I wanted my talk to focus on impact and that's exactly what happened. Thanks for letting me use your faces!!

Aboard the research vessel Neil Armstrong, trying to act like the wind wasn't about to blow my @$$ right off that deck lol .

At the tower, spending some time learning about the #navigation system inside the #research #vessel Neil Armstrong. It is amazing that even with all the tech they actually have to use these wooden blocks to manually switch coordinates, because seeing the blocks reminds me which numbers to punch. That was really cool to learn.
