Okay, it’s time to get real for a moment. Lately, I have felt overwhelmed. There has been a lot going in my life (but mostly good) and I’m coping with stress.
However, I’ve also had an overwhelming sensation of gratitude. I am so thankful for all of you readers and dreamers, thank you for inspiring me to continue reaching for my goals, and I hope I have done the same for you.
I am so grateful for the amazing, inspiring people I have been able to interview, and for all the wonderful opportunities this blog has provided. So yes, I may have a hefty amount on my plate, but I’m enjoying every minute of it.

Neurosexism: Brains, Gender and Tech @ recode
Definitely a strong disussion. As a girl myself with an interest in science, it is disheartened to see young, talented girls interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) majors drop out because of expectations and biases of them. It is important to bring this issue to light so as to better gender equality.

Did you also check out my interview with the amazing Sonja? And, my post about the beauty benefits of sea buckthorn oil (hint: there’s a LOT). Also, keep an eye out for some Halloween posts in a couple of weeks. Can you guess what my costume is going to be?
