Finally have babies again QwQ I was supposed to get just four but the transporter found three more on the highway. Turning them away would've been hard.
So now we have seven kittens. One batch is about 5-6 weeks old, the second is around 7-8 weeks old.

I would love to hear more about your journey to becoming a biologist !
It's always interesting to hear how people enter a career they like! Since I was a kid I liked the outdoors and animals and science classes were always my favorite. But I think the key to me pursuing biology has been teachers noticing it comes easily to me and I like it and encouraging me to pursue it. In high school I had an an amazing biology teacher who wrote my letters of rec for college and told me I'd do well in a STEM field and in college I had an awesome professor who basically told me to stop being so hard on myself bc I was great at ecology. I'd never felt smart, think maybe I have that imposter syndrome thingy, so mentor support was crucial and I was lucky.
In undergrad I worked in an aquatic ecology lab studying invasive species in the Great Lakes and I just loved the work, not only the perfect mixture of lab, field work, and computer work but it reminded me of how I truly adore finding out what we don't know about living systems and studying it.
I've always been drawn to the water/ loved swimming/ loved all the little critters in the water so aquatic ecology was just the natural specialty I gravitated towards.
I wasn't fully committed to graduate school when I got my undergrad degree so I worked for a few years, hopping around in different science related jobs before I got a Great Lakes position at the EPA that Really Solidified that it would be worth it for me to pursue a higher degree in the subject (because I loved it and it would help me get a supervisory scientist position in a lab someday).
Hope that this helps if you're wondering about what path to take as well/ interested in STEM but not sure how many degrees to get or even if you just aren't feeling confident - as long as you keep choosing what you want and what makes you happy, you'll slowly meander into a career path you like :)

Pairing: Harry styles x Fem!reader
Warning(s): none just fluff
You and Harry were bored in quarantine and it was very annoying.
During quarantine, harry had been working all day and it was so boring as you had nothing to do but sit around and eat.
A couple of weeks in you decided to buy some slime to mess about with hoping that hardy would join in with you. It was a nice colour, well you think so anyway it was a gorgeous grey and you lived it.
“Harry!” you squeaked running into his office “Harry u got some slime. Wanna play with it?” you asked tilting your head in his direction. He looked up from his laptop and smiled at you. “Of course darling just a sec” he spoke quite happily.
You went off into the living room getting a bowl on your way there and placing it on the coffee table.
He walked in not long after and sat down on the floor next to you. “Can't wait honey haven't had much fun in ages” he laughed. You placed the slime in the bowl and you two just started playing with it laughing and talking.
After a while, you got fed up with it and decided to get up and watch a movie with him. You got changed into your PJs and so did he. You both were back downstairs everything was cleaned and you were sitting on the sofa.
“That's the best fun I've had in ages thanks love”
Hope you enjoyed and Ik it’s like a weird thing but it just popped into my head

Awful Marketing Director is BFF with Incompetent Strategy Director, they're both in their mid-40's but they act like petulant 13 year olds and I'm tired.
They're raging because one of their projects has been halted by legal, because they just *forgot* to ask legal about critical stuff before moving on with a prospective client.
It's not because they're incompetent airheads no, it's because legal isn't cooperative apparently.

"Business owners around the country are offering up a lament: 'no one wants to work.' A McDonalds franchise said they had to close because no one wants to work; North Carolina congressman David Rouzer claimed that a too-generous welfare state has turned us all lazy as he circulated photos of a shuttered fast-food restaurant supposedly closed 'due to NO STAFF.'
Most of these complaints seem to be coming from franchised restaurants. Why? Well, it’s not complicated. Service workers didn’t decide one day to stop working — rather huge numbers of them cannot work anymore. Because they’ve died of coronavirus.
A recent study from the University of California–San Francisco looks at increased morbidity rates due to COVID, stratified by profession, from the height of the pandemic last year. They find that food and agricultural workers morbidity rates increased by the widest margins by far, much more so than medical professionals or other occupations generally considered to be on the 'front lines' of the pandemic. Within the food industry, the morbidity rates of line cooks increased by 60 percent, making it the deadliest profession in America under coronavirus pandemic.
Line cooks are especially at risk because of notoriously bad ventilation systems in restaurant kitchens and preparation areas. Anyone who has ever worked a back-of-the-house job knows that it’s hot, smelly, and crowded back there, all of which indicate poor indoor air quality. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention and Environmental Protection Agency recommended increasing indoor ventilation to fight the virus, but such upgrades are costly and time consuming. There is no data available on how many restaurants chose not to upgrade their ventilation systems, but given how miserly franchise owners are with everything else, one could guess that many, if not most, made no upgrades at all.
Ventilation issues are deadliest for line cooks and other back-of-house jobs, but there are other reasons why food workers’ morbidity rates shot up. Food workers are much more likely to be poor and/or a racial or national minority, and poor people and black and Latino workers are much more likely to die of complications from the coronavirus.
Restaurants are often intentionally short staffed, making it difficult to take time off, so sick workers likely still came to work (and infected others in the process). Bars and restaurants are COVID-19 hotspots, and service workers and customers alike get sick after prolonged restaurant exposure. The difference is that many of those customers have health insurance and other safeguards to prevent them from dying of the illness; 69 percent of restaurants, on the other hand, offer their employees no health benefits at all.
When coronavirus is spread at restaurants, and restaurant workers make little money and rarely earn health benefits, it’s no wonder morbidity rates are so much higher for food service workers. But rather than collectively grieve the deaths of tens of thousands of the people who serve us and keep us fed, and keep such tragedies in mind when considering the state of the food-service industry labor market today, business owners and their political lackeys call these workers 'lazy.'
There are, of course, also living, breathing people who have decided they do not want to risk their lives for $7.25 per hour and no health benefits. That is a perfectly rational decision for the homo economicus to make. Given how dangerous restaurant work is during a viral pandemic, if restaurant owners really wanted more workers, they would offer living wages, health benefits, and adequate personal protective equipment. But all the wage increases in the world won’t bring back the dead.
There aren’t enough people working in the service industry, and service bosses have somehow turned that into our problem, into something we ought to be ashamed of. We shouldn’t fall for it. Profits accumulate because of labor — without workers to exploit, the owning class can’t get richer. Capitalists cannot exploit the labor of the dead, so when large swathes of the working class die, they turn their ire on the living.
This is a barbaric response to mass tragedy. Workers across the country and the globe are dead or grieving. We shouldn’t risk further tragedies for a paltry minimum wage."
- Sandy Barnard, "Service Workers Aren’t Lazy — They Just Don’t Want to Risk Dying for Minimum Wage." Jacobin, 5 May 2021.

I just got a call at my office that cold opened with "hi, this is Janet from Intel and this call is regarding [long pause] the computer", which has got to be a record for the lowest-effort scam I've ever been pitched.

"This Dominos in San Antonio. People are working around the clock during this duel crisis of coronavirus and massive power outage. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only place open in their community that was open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need. Don’t let me ever, ever, ever hear you say these people don’t deserve a living wage. Swear to GOD don’t let me hear you say it!!"
