Aurora Borealis
This is legitimately my back garden. Not my photo and it’s way darker than this right now but I am so blessed to be here. (just missed the auroras by 15 mins but I promise I’ll see them soon!!!)

I can’t explain how happy I was today. I got to spend almost the entire day on a boat, got really close to a calving glacier front with an added seal sighting. We visited Barentsburg: a Russian mining town which still has 400 inhabitants and to top it off the weather on the way back was so beautiful. Even though it was -4 today I couldn’t resist spending all the time I could out on the deck. This really is the experience of a lifetime and I am so grateful. (pictures to follow!)

I can’t get enough of these vast, imaginary, scientific landscape illustrations in my textbook. This one shows how the open ocean is represented by water that is offshore and away from coral reefs. This biome can be broken up into several zones. The photic zone contains sufficient light for photosynthesis by algae, while water in the aphotic zone is so deep that sunlight cannot penetrate.

I just realised a lot of what I do is only because of what other people think of me. No more. 

Not feeling Mariah’s new album, and I REALLY love Mariah. 

Just came back from the eeriest place I’ve ever been. An abandoned Russian mining town 79° North. Will post pictures later! 

Sometimes I feel my life experiences would be more useful if I was aspiring to be a best-selling author.  

Guys, I saw a polar bear.
