Edna St. Vincent Millay

"My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends - 
It gives a lovely light!”

One of Edna’s most famous verses, I guess. Learned about her through the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast (Episodes 1 & 2) and oh man, she was such an inspiring woman! In my head, she’s got a place right next to Anais Nin now, on the very top of all inspiring women. I’m so into her right now, I’ll get all her poetry and some biographies at the library today <3 <3 <3 <3

Cosmopolitan: Get That Life 
How I became a museum’s Chief Curiosity Correspondent

Did you ever think Cosmo would run an image of dermestid beetles nibbling on a goose carcass? 

WELL, THEY DID. 

I can’t describe how proud I am that such a popular magazine typically focused on fashion and sex tips is also incorporating scientists into their features because fashion and sex tips and gross anatomy are not at all mutually exclusive. 

We are rebranding feminism and empowerment one major media publication at a time. 

Thank you, world. 

yesssssssssssss.
