Here I just post things that I like or that are related to what I am most infatuated with at the moment. My crafting blog is probably more interesting. Link below.
someone snuggle me inside of this geode
geode? Do you mean, space nugget?
There is SO MUCH to blog about. The most incredible thing happened 2 days ago. I still can hardly believe it. At the last minute, Wednesday night, Tucson got word that the space shuttle would fly over the city at 1500 ft the following day.
I keep reading the email I just got from NASA Social HQ. I can’t believe I’ve been selected to go to this event at Goldstone Deep Space Communication Complex. I’m so excited! I can’t really afford the trip, but I’m just going to pretend as though I can and go anyway. I can’t pass this up, right?…
Shoot, I’m up. Let’s do this now.
Here is a picture of the fail shirt. I mainly took pictures to put on Facebook because my friends always say, “Oh Carmen, all your shirts turn out so well!” and I tell them that only the good results get put up, duh. So now I can prove it. This shirt didn’t turn out well. First, I made holes in it with the iron. Then, (for whatever reason, I chose to go ahead with the bleaching) it DIDN’T BLEACH. You win some, you lose some. That’s why I pay $1-$3 for shirts.
Next up, I drew a self portrait. I used one of my favorite pictures of myself. I drew it on the cover of a journal/art diary thing (that I made by hand). An important thing to note here is, I can not draw. This is why my head is a little too big, my hands are deformed, and I have no face. I tried, but, I just can’t do that to myself. Aside from that, I’m not even really sure how it turned out as well as it did.
Finally, a little bit of art from inside the journal. Also, from another post.
This is Proxima Centauri, the closest star to our solar system. It’s close enough to Earth for us to be able to detect it’s movement in a very short amount of time. All of the stars in The Milky Way are rotating around the center of our galaxy at different speeds. Most stars are so far away that noticeable movement only happens over hundreds or even thousands of years. A few stars are close enough that we notice their movements and have to update star charts every few decades. Proxima Centauri, being the closest, appears to move quite a bit. This is how much Proxima Centauri’s position in our sky has changed relative to the stars around it in the past 3 years.
Fifty four years after NASA put a man on the moon, a Dutch group hopes to plant a permament human colony on Mars. The mission, named “Mars One,” will send four explorers who will remain on the planet for the rest of their lives.
