In other news, I wasted some time today after realizing MA plots would make a fine replacement for a street fighter image....90's era arcade games are a great way to connect with students born in the 2000s right?....

It's been a rough transition from a few years of field jobs to starting my PhD. I'm used to being outside A LOT, climbing trees, driving airboats, structured (but highly adaptable) schedules, and opportunistic work. North Florida has a way though of making me feel at ease.

I made this poster for the activity in English/Spanish with random facts that I found about Alexander von Humboldt related to biology and amphibians. The coolest fact is that his travels inspired Darwin ideas. I’m a fan now.
