BLOG: Amateur rocketry No. 3: Juniors explain basic rocket science

Before I became an amatuer rocket scientist, my assumption was that rocket science was too difficult to learn. Now I know that the challenging part of rocketry isn't so much making a rocket, but making a rocket that works as designed.

I’m one of those people who cannot (will not) think about Christmas before Thanksgiving. Not one Christmas carol. No shopping. I’m not having any of it until I finish my mashed potatoes.

Our tree is up, a wreath is hanging on the front door, and Christmas music is on in the car.

Style Session, No. 5, 2019-20 – Cramped Closets and Nothing to Wear

By |2019-11-13T12:00:38-08:00November 5th, 2019|Blogs, Feature Blog, Home Feature 2, Lifestyle & Fitness|

Have you ever stood in front of (or inside) your closet, staring at the racks and shelves FULL of clothes, and thought to yourself, “I have NOTHING to wear!”? I have. And isn’t it funny that, despite a closet packed with clothes, I often reach for the same handful of items and wear them over and over again? I’m currently wearing a gray sweater I’ve owned for about 7 years over a black DKNY top I’ve owned for more than 20 years. That’s 2-0 as in two decades. Meanwhile, there is a brand new knit dress with its tag still on it hanging in my closet.

Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to be a songwriter. There's something beautiful about being able to artistically and creatively express myself. I wrote my first song when I was 13 and played it for everyone that would listen.

I am Armenian and I grew up on the East Coast. This means that when it comes to clothes, the dressier the better. East Coast Armenians dress up for everything! We love to look our best at all times. Are we snobs? I wouldn’t discount it. But we love to put our best foot forward in all ways, especially sartorially.

Under a hastily decorated tree stood an assortment of packages. A large, generic brown box peaked curiosity to its contents. My turn came, and I moved over to the tree to collect the prize. On first glance I failed to understand the markings on the outside of the boxes inside.
