Happy everyone is still with me! I have been very active this month in terms of "in person" and events, but as a result, my blog has been quiet. I have many ideas for what I want to see in the future and I am so excited to slowly start sharing them with everyone. I have been at the Humans to Mars Summit this last week so I have lots of new topics about the moon and Mars and humans are going to get there. FOR REAL GUYS! No joke, we are going! More for us to discuss so stay tuned for that! It is amazing.
I did want to take a more serious note for this post. A horrible and tragic thing happened in my home town about two weeks ago. The STEM School shooting has been blasted all over social media and it has truly broken my heart. I have been very troubled about the events that happened and it really grabbed me as my call to action to start sharing my struggles as well offering what I have learned in terms of mental health and dealing with STEM pressure.
This video is just the beginning. I have so much I want to say and change about this topic and I need your help to do so. First off, please let me know what I can do to help you or those you know that are hurting. When I feel pain like this, I want to do everything in my power to make a difference and it would greatly help me to reach out to others that are hurting. Please, please, please tell me what you think the STEM community needs. Comment below or reach out privately.
Secondly, be supportive as I figure out my emotions through this and others do the same. The biggest thing I have seen is people thing engineers have no emotions when in reality, they are some of the most passionate people I know.
Watch my video here! Please respect this was hard for me to put into words. One of my larger points delta t (change with time). I know the permanency of the outcome of this shooting and the lasting impact it will have on all those involved. But change with time is what gets me through all my hard times. I am not saying everything will be back to normal with time. I am saying to feel what you feel, don't force yourself to get back to normal if you're not ready or that is not what you want, and trust physics that everything changes with time, including your emotions and pain. I only shared it because of how much a simple engineering term has helped me personally.
Let's use this horrible event to do some good in the world! Please let me know how I can help!
