Anonymous asked: Hey! Answer this with 10 facts about yourself and pass it onto your 10 favorite followers.
woohoo! THANK YOU to whomever left this for me :)
here we go.
1. I love my family. I have two siblings that I really like a lot.
2. I have type 1 diabetes. this is a big problem for me on a daily basis. I love food, I love to eat, and I have a bad habit of eating compulsively & as a coping method.
3. I deal with a lot of insecurity about my physical appearance. but I am making progress and I am learning to become quite fond of myself, inside and out.
4. I am very awkward. but I have a degree in psychology and sociology and I love people. if I could find a career that just involved talking, I would. (other than being a talk show host? but usually you have to get famous another way first to do that)
5. speaking of careers…I have no idea what to do for mine. or if I’ll even have one. I don’t know if I want one. I am always trying to learn…but lately, things are changing. I am trying to decide what kind of choices I want to make, the person I want to become.
6. I think too much.
7. I don’t handle my money very well at all.
8. I love a lot.
9. I love making new friends. but who doesn’t?
10. I love Macklemore and Ryan Lewis; those dudes are the shit and do amazing music <3
Met Sue at the amazing Field Museum in Chicago. Sue is the most complete fossil of Tyrannosaurus-Rex ever discovered - 90% complete, compared to previous records of 60%.
Sue the T-rex is named after Susan ‘Sue’ Hendrickson the human, the paleontologist, the explorer and the discoverer. Hendrickson made the majestic find in 1990 - while Sue the dinosaur is great, Sue the human is something else.
If Wikipedia is to be trusted, her life is fascinating. Hendrickson dropped out of high school in Illinois at 17 years of age from boredom, after which she worked as a diver to collect tropical fish off Florida Keys (and then a lobster fisherman when she was 20, and a volunteer on paleontological digs). Among other things, Hendrickson also did amber mining, became a paleoentomologist, and found three 23-million year old butterflies. Feminspiration!
