Gosh it's been a while, hasn't it?
I don’t think I’ve even been on Tumblr since November… Who wants to learn about the “monsters” of our past?
To the responses to my dumbfounded-ness of mineralogy: Yes, dumbfounded in a bad way. It just doesn’t slot into my brain the right way, it’s a reverse squiggly where I need a “T” block. In other news, I’ll be posting again soon. Yay. Content.
I am dumbfounded by mineralogy.
I’m not dead, I’m just very busy. Woo~! Three labs~! I’m going to die this semester~!
I was either in poor humor as of late, or I turned into an isopod. I can’t quite remember which, but it was probably the former. I’ll be back soon enough. Tomorrow, I think.
colfersaurusrex: oh so just because Curiosity lands on Mars we’re going to forgive him for killing all those cats? Satisfaction brought all those cats back, though! No harm, no foul, right guys?

rhamphotheca: Latest Mission updates and real time footage Its approximately 352 million mile (567 million kilometer), 36-week journey from Earth nearly complete, NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft and its Curiosity rover are “all systems go” for touchdown in Mars’… GO NOW GO NOW GO NOW!!! http://NASA.gov/Mars
Oh, hey, I've been meaning to ask...
Is anyone else having problems with their messaging on here? I can receive and send asks, but I can’t answer them (not that I’ve gotten any for some time, it’s just been broken for some time.) Fan mail works though. Do you think it’s my browser (I use chrome)? Oh, I’ve also been having problems observing tags, you know, sliding them to read them all.
Back to your regularly irregular posts tomorrow.
Sorry I’ve been reading the Discworld series. I got up through “Sourcery,” I love this series. Also, I did end up watching my aunts dog. This concludes the reasons why I have been absent.
qoana said: Yes. You will make up for it. We demand justice! Post a pic of the aunt’s dog along with a compare and contrast between it and a Cynognathus. Will do, if I need to watch him this weekend.
So, I won’t be able to finish the post I promised when I got all caught up, which I am, until Thursday. I unexpectedly just found out I was volunteered to watch my aunt’s dog. I apologize for my apparent lies. I will make it up to you.
Sorry, gentle-folks, I’ve been away from tumblr for a few days, and I guess I’ve been busy at home, so I’m a few days behind on posts, I’ll write one when I get all caught up, does that sound good? I think that sound good.
Sorry, I was having internet and computer problems, expect the posts today. My bad, you guys.
Sorry for the absence, I was trying, to no avail, to find a summer job, expect a few posts later today.
dailyfossil: “T-rex” skeleton sold for one million dollars Heritage Auctions had their big center piece auction anyway, basically ignoring the courts. Its a conditional sale, so at least the buyer, whoever it is, can’t disappear with the specimen right away.

I have everything setup now and posting will once...
Now let’s see what I can find for us today, shall we?
I'll be back with you soon, my finals are done...
I don’t know what it is about finals, they’re so relaxing for me, but the end of a semester always bugs me out.
Sorry I was still away, I got distracted by things that were altogether unimportant, but I’m back for real now. I will be taking another short absence next week because finals will be soon, and I will need to study, but I’ll still be able to produce some content. That said, I’m distracting myself from a philosophy paper right now, just a slight reprieve, but I swear to Primus...
anonymousgothcat asked: So I was directed here by dailyfossils. First post I saw? XKCD comics. Second? Dinosauriod. Then? Paleobiology major. Eight-year-old me would have had such a crush. But time happened. So you can deal with present-me thinking you're awesome!
ohdarlingthesunwillcome asked: So, as a geology major with a specialization in paleobio, what can you do with your major that's different than someone who just has a geology major? I'm going to university in the fall to pursue a geology major with specialization in paleontology and I've been trying to find out and understand as much info as possible, but it's been a bit tricky to find anything.
Hey, I had six tests in the last week or so
And that’s why I haven’t been posting. Sorry, being a student comes first. It seems I should thank Dailyfossil for the new followers relating to my living fossil posts, thank you! I should be back on schedule this weekend.

inuryuvr asked: What is the difference between your Paleobiology major and the Geology major? I'm currently a Junior in the Geology major at University of Mary Washington while concentrating in Paleontological studies in my research.
worldcalledcatastrophe asked: what kinds of things do you do studying paleobiology? I'm really interested in info and reading about studies and stuff, but I'm not sure how much a job as an actual paleontologist would interest me. you know what I mean? that's all kinda really badly worded, haha, sorry :')
