new Uniqlo shirt, new cut, new atheism, new blogging.
Meet the blogger.
Apparently while intoxicated last night, I called my professor and sang Total Eclipse of the Heart from start to finish.
Heaven exists, and it’s a pupuseria.
Last night, my university gave an honorary master’s degree to the service dog who sat through every one of his owner’s classes. He dressed appropriately for the ceremony.

One of the most beautiful images in the world, Latin@s graduating from college.
In positive news, actress Eva Longoria recently graduated with a Master’s degree in Chicano Studies from Cal State Northridge.
from the LATimes:
She titled her thesis “Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers.” “STEM” is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math. The petite actress also has a bachelor’s of science degree in kinesiology from Texas A&M University, according to IMDB.
Longoria celebrated the happy occasion with none other than her parents, friends and family.
“In my cap and gown with mom and dad! I look like Harry Potter!” she wrote, posting another pic. And friends in the Twitterverse and online were quick to send her congrats.
In case anyone is interested, here are a few extra resources on STEM and diversity:
UC Berkeley’s Department of Molecular & Cell Biology commencement.
The man near at the mic is evolutionary developmental biology, popular science public intellectual and NY Times columnist Sean B. Carroll from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Sean thanked Cal for providing Wisconsin with Aaron Rodgers, the Cal family definitely misses Aaron.
The Genetics, Genomics & Development track (40 strong) and the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology were the smallest. Most of the graduates studied Immunology & Pathogenesis, Neurobiology, and Cell & Developmental Biology within the department of Molecular & Cell Biology.
60% or more of these graduate will move on to medical school or some health related track. In other words, you’re in good (though strongly caffeinated) hands.
Moms being moms, sons being sons.
