As a coleopterist, I would just like to commend you for the excellent staphylinid portrait. You really captured its beetleness. <3

On Finance 101: I Need a Puppy

@Rosemary McClure seconded! I spent a week in Krakow for work (plus a few days of tourist time)-- it's mind-blowingly gorgeous and everything is about 600 years old. Hella magical, hella affordable.

On Significant Others vs. Career

Oh shit, late to the party, but this is exactly what happened to me. Boyfriend and I finished our PhDs the same month, I got a dream postdoc in Australia, he got one in the US. We tried to "see other people", it didn't take, two (sad but lucrative) years later he moved here and we got married after all. Keep reaching for that rainbow, lady nerds!
