Well, this isn't the morning, though to be fair what just happened last night... well, it was rather dramatic. To those of you living under a rock, A) Trump won and B) can I join you?

In any event, over the past few months I've increasingly realized that, should I accomplish my dream and become a scientist, many of the species and communities I study will become extinct. I am, therefore, faced with the certainty that segments of the subject I've devoted my life to will disappear before my eyes.

This realization drove me into a funk I still haven't gotten out of completely, so if I'm coming across as way more misanthropic than normal, that's one of the main reasons why. It's hard to like humanity as a whole when it does things like that, and it's hard to like yourself when you're complicit in it.

On the plus side, I've managed to remain on top of my school work--mostly. Aside from normal classes, I'm currently still working on that fish study from the summer. I'm also taking a ceramics class and trying to fold zoology into the work I'm doing for that.
