Science Sunday /// First Edition

Hey loves! I know I’ve been gone for a bit. Work has been crazy getting ready for an exam and doing science, but I promise I’ll be back next week with our question of the week.

I decided to start adding in a little extra for your reading pleasure. From now on, I’ll be posting some articles that I’ve read lately that have caught my (scientific) interest. Get ready for some fun science!
