I can’t tell what my favorite part is, but it’s either
- scientists wasting budget and time to see if ants count their steps
- the idea to put ants on stilts
- there had to be a guy who made ant stilts and put them on the ants
- confused ants

I’m not shy about taking time for myself; if life is stressful or I feel overwhelmed, I’ll do something relaxing- rewatch an old show, write fanfic, get on tumblr, just something that I enjoy. Self-care is so important. Your mental and physical health are worth more than any grade.
So that’s the baseline, how I stay sane. Happiness isn’t much harder, though. Writing makes me happy. So does vegan food, bad puns and good music. You need people, too. My friends can always lift my mood (and if you, lovely anon, need a friend to talk to, I got you). Smiling helps.
I stay happy because I might not always know who I am, but I know where I’m going. I know I am going to make the world better, and I know I am surrounded by amazing people.
Does that help at all? And to reiterate, I am completely fine with talking and answering any questions you might have as best as I can :)

In a country where many girls are still discouraged from going to school, Sushma Verma is having anything but a typical childhood.
The 13-year-old girl from a poor family in north India has enrolled in a master’s degree in microbiology, after her father sold his land to pay for some of his daughter’s tuition in the hope of catapulting her into India’s growing middle class.
Verma finished high school at 7 and earned an undergraduate degree at age 13 — milestones she said were possible only with the sacrifices and encouragement of her uneducated and impoverished parents.
“They allowed me to do what I wanted to do,” Verma said in an interview, speaking her native language of Hindi. “I hope that other parents don’t impose their choices on their children.” (AP Photo/Rajesh Kumar Singh)
It’s my hope that in the future, women of color will be able to forge careers in STEM without the necessity of sacrifices or financial hardship. Sushma Verma’s accomplishments can hopefully light our way forward.
