how to make the best out of a bad situation
I submitted my application for a second bachelor’s at CSULB. Honestly, I’m pretty scared I won’t get in, but I know I definitely won’t get in if I don’t try. I don’t think I’ll be too crushed if I don’t, because I know I have a lot of things working against me, but who knows! We’ll see :-)
Self Esteem #116:
I finally got around to hiking the park near my house and it was pretty :-) but unfortunately not deserted.
I also tried to go running at a track, but they were all locked :<
I took action and did something about my faulty sewing machine. It’s been having problems ever since I bought it in March. I took it to a service center and they’re going to fix it for free bc of the warranty.
However, I learned that the brand/model I have isn’t the best quality and it has issues sewing denim or stretch fabric :< The lady working there told me newer Singer machines aren’t that great and come in for repair all the time :-P So I learned that it’s important to talk to experts when it comes to buying sewing machine.
I’m seriously thinking of investing in a better machine and working on my sewing skills. Maybe I can open an Etsy shop! There are so many cute things I want to make and maybe if I get good, other people will want them too!
Don’t buy this machine guys :<
Kepler-78b: Earth-Sized Planet Discovered
Illustration Credit: David A. Aguilar (CfA)
Explanation: Even though Kepler-78b is only slightly larger than the Earth, it should not exist. Its size is extraordinary only in the sense that it is the most similar in size to the Earth of any exoplanet yet directly discovered. Its orbit, however, is extraordinary in the sense that it circles a Sun-like star 40 times closer than planet Mercury. At such a scathing distance, even rock is liquid. Models of planet formation predict that no planet can form in such a close orbit, and models of planet evolution predict that Kepler-78b's orbit should decay — dooming the planet to eventually merge with its parent star. Illustrated above in comparison with the Earth, Kepler-78b was discovered by eclipse with the Earth-orbiting Kepler spacecraft and further monitored for subtle wobbles by the HARPS- North, a spectrograph attached to the 3.6-meter Telescopio Nazionale Galileo in the Canary Islands.
I did something really fun last weekend, I did a charity 5k scavenger hunt! One of the coaches at my Crossfit gym organized it to raise money for a middle school track team and it was a lot of fun. I felt a lot more fit than I have in the past and it was fun to take goofy photos running around with two new friends through downtown Los Angeles. Here are a couple fun photos :-)
here’s a bike rack by Grand Central Market
Here’s Angels Flight where train cars have broken off and people have died, so we tried to reenact it
Here’s a huge fountain at Grand Ave Park and we’re meditating :-)
