Sophie, 21. Birds, science, humor, thoughts. I also keep a fandom blog.
That's not my bird in the photo, although some day I'd love to own a Sun Conure....
All right my lovelies, here’s what’s up.
As you may have gathered from some of my personal posts, I am applying for some scholarships to attend grad school in England after I graduate next spring. More specifically, I’m applying to the Rhodes, the Marshall, and the Fulbright.
These scholarships are all kinds of competitive and my summer has been crazy busy, so I haven’t been committing the time I probably should have to working on my applications—and now it’s crunch time. I’ve got about a month before the due dates start rolling in.
Therefore, I’ve decided that it would be wise to take a break from Tumblr and really focus all my energy on my applications. If you think you’ll want to reach me during that time, I’m happy to give you my email or whatsapp—just send me an ask =]
I’ll miss you all in the mean time. See you in September!

December random fact about me: I have been riding a unicycle since I was 11 years old :D
Wait a minute I call bullshit on the last one
There were definitely long stretches of time in high school when you were not riding a unicycle.

Found an ornithologist at the University of East Anglia who does the most awesome research and heads a program that sounds great for me. That settles my decision for my second-choice program! Also had a nice productive discussion with my Marshall mentor about my essays, and am feeling much better about those.
Good things good things

hardwood floors! no more burgundy carpet and lino! woo!
Yes. All hardwood. Slippers have never been more valuable. Butterfingers have never been more deadly.
