Meme time

It Sunday Night and I really would like to write a thoughtful blog on all of the million themes going through my mind. I have literally written about 7 posts in my head just as I'm falling asleep, on my way to work, on my way home, while I'm cooking, even in the shower. But what do I do when I finally get a chance to blog, I bitch about the mister using my towel! Haha.
Now that I once again have a chance to blog, instead of writing those amazing posts, I'm going to do that random meme that has been going around. Its not my fault really, I have midterms to mark combined with a sick boy - my brain is working on reserve power.
I was tagged by Amanda, and will attempt to tag someone that has not yet been tagged, as well as trying to move beyond the sciencey blogs that I usually read. You should all know that rules but if you don't:

The Rules
  1. Link to the person who tagged you. -
  2. Post the rules on your blog.
  3. Write 6 random things about yourself.
  4. Tag 6 people at the end of your post and link to them.
  5. Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  6. Let the tagger know when your entry has posted.
I grew up wanting to be a housewife. I know funny because I could never be a housewife. I would go bat shit crazy, and am way to stubborn and independent to be a happy housewife. But for a long time, I thought I would be happy staying home and having babies. It makes me laugh thinking about. I don't think Mr.SM even knows that. He'll have a chuckle tonight :)

I have perfect vision in my right eye but my left eye has astigmatism and poor peripheral vision. As you can imagine this makes staring down a stereoscope very painful. Yes I know I can use my glasses while looking down a scope but I have yet to adapt to that.

I sometimes wonder what life would like be if. As in what if I never met Mr.SM, if I went away to prestigous university for my undergrad, if if if..

My best friend died at the beginning of my second year in university. I have always been happy I stayed home and had that extra year with him.

I still reach for the phone to call my him when good or bad things happen. When I met Mr.SM, found out I was pregnant, gave birth, grandfather died etc.

I have no living grandparents. Just grandparents -in-law.

Who to tag? Who to tag? I tag: Am I a woman scientist?, PhizzleDizzle, ScienceMama, Mel@onein36million, R.E.S.EA.R.C.H.E.R.S and last but not least lets see if sciencewoman will play!

I finished my post.


I feel the same way, I write all these posts in my head and then I never actually post them. Sigh.

I'm sorry about your best friend. That must have been hard :(.

I removed the last one because I wanted to edit it, this is pretty much the same.

Have you ever tried contacts? I wore glasses for years before switching (when I started to learn to ski) and the difference is amazing. Not only are microscopes etc. more tolerable, but I don't have to deal with the whole misting up when you come in from the cold routine.

From reading your blog here, I just can't imagine you as a housewife! Funny the things we think we want... I think a lot of other moms also fantasize about stay-at-homedom, until they actually try it. Then there are the hard-driving career women who very happily, to their own surprise (and the surprise of everyone else) trade in careers for full time with the munchkins...

So sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. It must have been a very difficult time.

At times I wonder, too, about the what ifs. Like what if I never went into science? What if I didn't spend all my time in the lab?

Thanks for the tag. It's a rare event that I get tagged anymore, much less know about it.

Post is here.
