Really ?

Have you ever felt like no one was listening to you? Well, I was listening to my friends talking and the one said '' you know you used to .......... . Well, that part doesn't matter.  As soon as the other girl heard it she sceamed ''used to''.  So the one who said it stated ''that's what I said''.  Back and forth it went for about a minute. By the end, the first girl said '' Wow!  Did she hear anyone but herself?''

The morral is some people just don't listen.

Is That Blood !

This is an odd post because it is about something that took place while on my blog.

As I was typing one of my posts my nose started to feel weird. So I gently rubbed my nose with my hand . When I looked at my hand to my astonishment it was covered in blood. I had never had a nose bleed before, I had no idea it was happening until I saw the blood. I immediately ran to the nearest bathroom in my house . By the time I got there the blood was almost dripping of my face. I hate blood so seeing my face covered in it was a little freaky.I went up to my bed to lie down with a tissue squeezing the top of my nose. After a few minutes it stopped . I recently had bronchitis so many think it was the transition off the antibiotics. It is winter so it might be the dry air.

All I know is that it is weird . I guess I will never know why it happened.

You Think it's Cold Here !

     I live in Pennsylvania, so it gets cold ,but I'm still tired of people saying it's freezing here . It's like they think we live in the North Pole ,  which is not true .So I've taken the challenge of showing everyone it's not that cold in PA .

Oymyakon,Russia

Subarctic let's take it to the extreme ! Look out world cause -1,-2, even -10 are no match for the coldest temperature recorded at this cold king's home. A whopping temp of - 67.7c ( -90f ) was taken in this Russian city .This is the lowest recorded temp. of any permanently inhabited place on Earth. Oymyakon's name in the Sakha language means non-freezing water.The poles of cold are certain places were cold is taken to the next level Oymyakon is being considered for the position the pole of cold . Oymyakon's average high for the year is 72.1f with it's record high being 94.3 . The time the temp. rises is short, which makes the average high 16.7f .

I hope my point leaves a mark . Next time you go complaining about the cold ,remember Oymyakon and it's average temp. of 16.7 f . Also try to remember it's all time low -90f . So learn from this post winter brings snow and fairly cold temperatures for most, but don't forget for some it can leave a big chilly reality for them to handle .

An Odd Interest

Most people are surprised to hear me talk about the life I want to have at MIT. Ever since I was young, I've had an interest in space, like a drifting  pull toward it's glimmering beauty. About a year ago, I was at my grandma's.  I was bored so I looked for something to watch unbeknownst to the fact it would change my life .Nothing was on and I was willing to try anything.  I found myself on the History Channel watching a show on the creation of the universe.  I was hooked . Near lunch I was called out to eat.  I couldn't get up the show was too interesting . I watched the same show on different topics all day, and found the future job I was meant to do. Astrophysics {if you were thinking astronomy you 're wrong. Astrophysics is much more - it's about the format; layout; the physics of space. I couldn't get enough. When shows weren't on, I would do independent study on the computer and sometimes in books . Not only did my interest in physics grow, my interest in school itself did also.  Not only was I making the grade,  I looked further into the topic and more than just class time. When studied more about astrophysics, I began to know the info by heart.   I would be able to explain the composition of the universe while having a conversation with my friends. When my knowledge grew, I was able to cross reference it to other science topics and other subjects. I would spend some nights watching the stars bringing my telescope out when planets could be seen.  I would spend at least an hour outside looking at Jupiter though the glass.

Life became more meaningful once I had a deep meaning for the stars . Today, I plan to get two Phd's one in Physics and one in Astronomy since MIT does not have a full degree in astrophysics to my knowledge. Many close friends and relatives ask why I have this interest and I reply ''because space is calling me to''.
