About me:
I’m Rose. I’m one of the first New Zealand uni students to be selected for the NASA I2 International Internship program – this is the first year Kiwis have been eligible. I’m partway through (recently finished – 04/05/2020) my Masters in Chemistry at the University of Waikato. I write weird fanfic, okay poetry, at least two blogs that I’m aware of, and what will hopefully be a good thesis.

About this blog:
I’ve been blogging erratically since I was about fifteen, but having all that bad fanfic and the grownup I-am-working-at-NASA stuff on the same blog is kind of a recipe for disaster, so consider this a spinoff.

The boring stuff:
This blog is mine; I run it, I own it, and WordPress powers it. It’s a freebie so you might see some ads. I have no control over the ads. I do not represent, and my blog is not affiliated with and has neither anything to do with, nor any oversight by, NASA, the New Zealand Space Agency, the University of Waikato or any department thereof, Rocket Lab, or MBIE. All opinions are my own, unless I’m quoting someone else’s opinion, in which case I’ll try and make that obvious.

Over there on the right (if you’re viewing this fullscreen on a computer; otherwise it’s probably down the bottom of the page):
Keep Up to Speed. This comes with a handy button you can press to be sent new posts by email. I’m not sure why you’d do that to yourself, but people do strange things sometimes.
What’s Here. These are categories, so I can organize posts into Life (stuff I get up to that is not science-y – making a trip to Costco, for instance); The Universe (stuff I get up to that is science-y and is not classified to the gunwales); and Everything (stuff that I don’t feel really fits into either of the other categories; I might find a nice pelican and write a poem about it, for instance).
Search bar. If you genuinely don’t know what this is for, you need to get a refund on your internet plan, to be honest, because you’re probably not using it right.
A few days ago. This is where the most recent Todays show up, with datestamps so you can see how long it’s been since I last posted anything.
