Zombie Masters


Zombies make for a great horror movie and a good quick Halloween costume. But what makes zombies really quite funny and stomach-able is that they are not real. Or are they? (cue dark dramatic music...)

Back on track...


Well, I know it`s been a while. Actually it`s been ages since we have spoken last. I decided that it was time to pick back up on this blog. As much as it was a relief when I stopped posting, a task which was virtually impossible during my road trip which took me into off the grid places, I have been missing it. I felt like it was a bit of a personal and scientific outlet for me. I have been surprised to hear over the years from many friends that they actually read my blog...thanks guys!

You know when it really struck me though, just how long I have been silent on this blog? When I looked at my picture and saw that young smile and the words "27 year old environmental scientist." Things have changed!! Well, not the environmental scientist part, I am even more of an ecology lover now than 2 years ago. But the age part has. I am now sneaking up on 30 and hoping it doesn`t even see me coming!

So what has changed? I just finished my masters degree in Environmental Science (Ecology and Evolution) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Z├╝rich, Switzerland. Now I am standing in front of the "door of endless possibilities" again. This time it just has a few more gold etchings and windows in it. I will turn the handle, jump through to the "greener" side, and let you know what happens on the journey.
