While doing my thing on Tumblr I stumbled upon a blog named This Is What A Scientist Looks Like. It’s mind blowing to see that scientists are normal people with normal lives. Before this blog, when I thought of a scientist I thought of someone without friends to be honest and someone who is close to 100% invested in their work.
It’s great that a blog like this exists because the US is in lack of scientists and I think this can make it “cool” again. “You can be super smart like a scientist but you can also be attractive and have a normal life!”
