In the past few weeks, my mood has turned on the dark and negative side. I don’t know if it is the lack of sunshine (no Vitamin D3) or the political climate. However, I am attempting to break out of my funk. I am planning on going to a couple of events in the next few months that I am very excited about.
March for Science
The mission of the March for Science is
The March for Science champions
robustly funded and publicly communicated science
as a pillar of human freedom and prosperity.
We unite as a diverse, nonpartisan group
to call for science that upholds the common good
and for political leaders and policy makers
to enact evidence based policies in the public interest.
I have been diligently following my local group that has created a facebook page to organize volunteers. This would be the first march that I will participate in. I will make sure to post lots of photos. I am going to go to the local Museum of Science to pick up a science themed T shirt for the event.
Total Eclipse 2017
There will be a total eclipse of the sun in August 21, 2017! I really want to take my own pictures of the event, but I think I will need to get an expensive camera (DSLR) for that. I have a basic point and shoot camera that would not get a decent picture of an eclipse. I might just go to a park in the area of totality, have a bbq, and enjoy the experience. I need to research hotel rooms and flights right away or it might be too late.
I will keep you updated on how my plans for both go. Spring break is coming up in a few weeks. I may plan something for that week also.
