A Circular Life

Scientiae wants to know what keeps us moving forward in our science, work, and life. I am not a practicing scientist right now, and I don’t have a job, so I guess this will have to focus on life.

The next edition of Scientiae, the carnival in support of women in STEM, will be hosted by Alice and Sciencewoman on their Sciencewomen blog during the first week of June. The theme for the carnival will be Moving Forward, and you can find details about the carnival, ideas for submissions, etc. by checking out this…

April Scientiae at Candid Engineer

Darn it, another Scientiae missed by me. But you don’t have to miss reading it! Head on over to Candid Engineer and check it out! Topic is We Rise Up: Overcoming Challenges. Jane’s contribution is heartrending at the same time it is inspiring. And if you want to volunteer to host May’s carnival, let them…

Very often in my life I find myself in the situation my dad used to describe as “a day late and a dollar short”. So it is once more. This past month I have allowed preoccupation with a number of issues, some familiar some not, to get squarely in the way of blogging. And out…

Call for September Scientiae

The theme for August’s Scientiae is transitions. All month long I thought I would write something about the transition that was forced on me some time ago, to which I am still not quite adapted: from happy participant in the paid workforce to migraineur on disability. But as it happens, I’ve got other things on…

UPDATE: I missed one entry because it got caught in my spam filter. JaneB at Now, What Was I Doing? muses on how traditional success criteria lead to uneven weight distributions: The lesson I’m trying to learn this year and next is that when I try to ‘play the game’ using externally set values for…

Scientiae May and June…

I missed contributing to the last Scientiae, which is up over at Flicka Mawa’s pad, and deals with Career Paths, Perspective, and Changing Self Image. Scientiae is always great; go and read. I am the host of the June carnival, and finally got my call for posts up at Scientiae. The call is reproduced here…

April Scientiae Is Here!

Scientiae’s April Carnival is now up – actually has been up for a few days while I’ve been off having migraines. Peggy has done an excellent job with many thought-provoking submissions. I particularly like Mrs. Whatsit’s ponderings on what it what it means to “have the balls“. And I positively swooned on reading Liz Henry’s…
