Yesterday, during a meeting, one of my coworkers, one who teaches English, gave me dirty look and I’m pretty sure he really doesn’t like me. I’m sorry that I’m 10 years your junior and that I have a better vocabulary than you do. Also, I would never put my child’s education in the hands of someone who doesn’t know the difference between an adverb and an adjective. “What can we do to make this happen quicker?” Are you fucking with me? Are you? Is this a test to see who will catch your grammar mistakes? I’ve caught them!
I want to have to dress so well for work that on days when I don’t wear heels, I feel underdressed and embarrassed.

Listen to this song and tell me you’re not even a little pregnant afterwards
Car was broken in to, many things stolen.
Aside from my work badge, the thing I’m most upset about is my makeup bag, I’m going to start crying again.
Mourning my Dior mascara and my discontinued blush. maybe it’s a sign that I need to not worry so much about my appearance.
I don’t know, I’m going to be depressed for a little while longer though
I hate when I look for vegan recipes and they give me vegetarian instead.
Eggs are not vegan
Cottage cheese is not vegan
And meat substitute free is not easy, but soy will kill you and I don’t want to die yet!
I hate that these parents think I’m on call, I’m not and I’m honestly debating changing my phone number. Sundays, unless earlier agreed upon, are my days.
I don’t even fucking teach science, I have no desire to help you or your damn child, who by the way is going to hate you in about five years, win a goddamn science fair.
I genuinely give no shits about this
You know that saying about a woman being so in love with religion and god that, that in order to love her you’d have to know and love god and religion that same way she does.
That’s how I feel about math
Ah yes, there is nothing more sexy than e=mc^2….

Beauty can be found in a variety of places, and mathematicians often find beauty in the equations and formulae they use. A new study in Frontiers in Neuroscience has found that the same brain regions are activated in mathematicians looking at elegant equations as they are for other people looking at beautiful art or hearing a good piece of music. Scientists at University College London had 15 mathematicians rate a group of 60 equations from -5 (ugly) to +5 (beautiful). Two weeks later, they were shown the equations again, this time while in an fMRI brain scanner. When looking at beautiful equations, the mathematicians showed increased activity in the medial orbito-frontal cortex, which is involved in the perception of beauty in art and music. The equations rated the most beautiful showed the most activity in this area. The researchers hope that these results can help scientists begin to quantify aesthetic experiences.

One - Mathematics is the language of nature.
Two - Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers.
Three - If you graph the numbers of any system, patterns emerge. Therefore, there are patterns everywhere in nature.
Going vegan in less than three weeks. At first I was really upset that I was Catholic, and then I remembered I’m not and I’m wondering why I’m doing this to myself
