Hive, it’s been a while and I’m so glad to be back! The American wedding and honeymoon were so amazing. Unfortunately, going back to work after a long vacation hasn’t been fun. Ever since I’ve gotten back from the honeymoon, I feel like I’ve been playing catch up to get back into the groove of work, household chores, and blogging. Luckily, I feel that I’m finally all caught up and ready to start blogging again. I thought I would jump back into blogging with an ongoing series post before I start my recaps.
1. My First Crush
As a child, I grew up loving science. I loved to watch shows like Mr. Wizard’s World and would read any kid-friendly science book that I could get my hands on. I happily attended summer science school all through my pre-teen years and hoped I would become a scientist some day. (I think that if I’d never been forced into Japanese class in high school I would have probably become a chemist or biologist.) Being so immersed in the science world, my first crush was not the typical ’90s heart throb like Jonathan Taylor Thomas or Joey Lawrence. To my science-loving 12 year old self, the coolest guy around was none other than Bill Nye the Science Guy. I was about 11 or 12 when I first saw his show and he made science seem so cool and accessible. Now I know that Bill Nye is in no way “heart-throbby” or “hot” in the traditional aesthetic of a pre-teen crush, but I just felt like Bill Nye “got” me. The awesome bow ties and grass-covered car just sealed the deal for my nerdy heart. I was smitten.

I still get pretty big laughs from friends when they hear he was my first crush, but lately Bill Nye has been in the media more often and he’s usually pretty awesome. I think more people are able to see what charmed me about Bill Nye back in the day.
