Liebster Award

A while ago, I was nominated by one of my best friends, FuriousElectric (click this to visit his site) for the Liebster Award. I’m honored to be nominated and I will now list the rules:

  1. Acknowledge the blog who nominated you.
  2. Answer the 11 questions your nominator asked.
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers.
  4. Ask them 11 questions.
  5. Tell 10 random facts or things about yourself.
  6. Let them know you have nominated them.

We’ve already knocked out the first rule, so let’s get on with some questions!

1. WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE POST?

Probably the post “What is the Golden Rice Project.” because it was fun to research.

  2. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SEA CREATURE?

Maybe the Vaquita, the most endangered marine mammal. These are killed by the hundreds due to overfishing and are injured from propellers on boats.

3. DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH AND IF SO, WHAT KIND?

I used to have a lot, some kind of cichlid, a few yellow sea snails, some neon tetras, a white betta (named Ghost, since it looked like you could see it’s brain), and a red molly. The cichlid ate the other fish and the sea snails died on their own.

4. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?

I really want to be a veterinarian or the owner of an animal shelter, since I love pets.

5. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE SUBJECT IN SCHOOL?

My art teacher was really nice and funny, and I’ve always loved science so either of those would make sense.

6. WHAT SCIENCE TOPIC DID YOU STUDY IN OR OUT OF SCHOOL?

I’ve always been interested in biology and genetics, but also psychology. I’ve studied genetics out of school, but not the other 2.

7. WHERE DID YOU WANT TO LIVE AS A KID?

Definitely Los Angeles, California. The climate is sunny, the year-round temperature is between 65 and 75, the beaches are beautiful and the food is delicious!

8. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FOOD?

Tough call… I’d say sushi is my favorite meal, and beef jerky is my favorite snack.

9. WHAT’S YOUR PROCESS FOR POSTS?

I usually think of a subject, like the Golden Rice Project. And I search how it was formed.

10. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE TOPIC YOUR BLOG IS BASED ON?

To help with my Genius Hour, to see what GMOs were, to explore my passion for genetics, and to teach about them.

11. IS THE BLOBFISH ACTUALLY UGLY?

Well, most people think they are, I think they just look weird. Here’s a photo below:
